Techno-Geek Wreath

So, we've been cleaning.

And un-boxing.

And sorting.

And this is what I ended up with... a box of electrical wires that either don't work or aren't useful to us anymore.

My husband was about to just throw them away, but I urged him to keep them so I could attempt a craft.

Here's what I started with...

Lots of wires, silver and black and white duck tape, a wreath ($1) and scissors.  

Yep, lots of wires.

First I began cutting the wires to a  manageable length (when you wrap wreaths, the shorter you can make the wrap, the better... leads to less tangles!

When the wires were exposed, I used the appropriate duct tape to cover the ends.  

Sometimes I tucked cables into the wreath, sometimes I just used a big hunk of tape to hold the cable to the wreath.

And here's what I ended up with.  Great for the techno-hubby in your life.  Or your "office" door.  Or as a gift to your electrician.  LOL

Okay, okay... it's not exactly going to fit with my decor... but it will look so cute hanging in the garage for now.  :)  

A 12" wreath for just $1 (the wreath form, since I had the rest with me).... and I'm helping to do my part on Earth... recycling!
