(And yes, I am a tiny bit concerned that so many of my conversations begin with that sentence.)
But see? It's cool. But alas, this garden ornament is not being sold on the first day of November. I can't imagine why.
But I did begin to imagine how I could make my own, at absolutely no cost.
Wouldn't you know it, a tutorial exists. All you need are some old bands from whiskey barrel planters, nuts, bolts, washers and a good drill.
And I have all those!
I tried to drill through the rings, but it just wasn't going to happen. Not for me, anyway.
However, this guy was able to do it. In his work clothes, no less. And during lunch.
He's not very camera shy.
So then I was able to fasten them together, using some extra nuts as spacers for the larger ring.
And that's what we had once lunchtime was over.
After work, drilled through and fastened the other end and then we added the fourth ring around the circumference of the other three, again using spacers.
I love it in all it's not quite round and imperfect glory.
That outside ring actually spins!
It's not really a lot like the pinterest orb, but it's rusty and
it was free.
So I'm OK with it.
Thanks for reading!
(And yes, I am done with beet harvest~YAY!)
