I made my first attempt at pounding the tar out of vintage silverware (larger serving utensils), stamped them and attached them to a vintage baby carriage wheel frame.

To attach them I used liquid nails.

Hubby found a hard plastic tube (at the hardware store), drilled a hole, ran a screw with a bolt and a few spacers.

Then we put it in our flower garden.

It is perfect to get us through the fall when the flowers are reaching their end, but our whirligig will still stand tall.

It fit just right on just the right number of spokes.

A personal favorite of mine.
