|Seriously! I had this idea to make a Ferris wheel |
and I needed cans!!!
|We hit the alley and found a few, but, I decided to make |
soup so I could have enough to work with!
|Sorry the photo's so washed out. I made a very |
large batch of chili and a small batch of
sausage tortellini soup (click for recipe).
|We found 5 steel beer cans in the alley. These are the BEST! They are just darling!!! Churchkey Beer. Ever heard of them??? I hadn't. I'm still looking and wishing for more!!!|
|I cut the tops off all the cans, then I used a nice long |
bolt, washer, split washer and nut to fasten these down.
I put the bolt all the way through both sides of the rim.
I figured that would be sturdier.
|Some one is always getting sick on the Ferris wheel!|
|This started with a blue bike fork. I thought it would |
be nice to spray paint the rim white and the cans red.
I added white flowers so you would have
red, white, blue and texture.
|It was very shady here. |
Looks like I have another sick rider.
I still have a little work to do on these. I'm going to weld a rebar step onto the bottoms. I also have a couple more to make. One of them will be with the body of the bike, not just the fork. If I get it done tomorrow I'll throw it on here.
OH! NO the wheel won't turn. It would tear up the flowers.
ALTHOUGH,,, I'm thinking I might make one with very compact flowers and let that one move. The wheel would be mounted on the outside of the fork, not on the inside. I think it'll work that way! Only time will tell!
Hope you liked it!
Have a good one and thanks for stopping by! Shell
