    These are some great ideas! I never would of thought of using old bed springs to create things. But these are great. Love them all. Bet there hard to find, and if you are lucky enough to run across any, I bet they want a fortune. It’s funny how we use to consist things like this trash. Now we would love to get our hands on things like this to create with.

    Super clever! I saw this headline and had to stop over. I never thought of using old springs for decor but these are very cute!
    Favorites are the wreaths and the popcorn server.

    I love the wreath, but don’t have enough springs on hand to do that project. I went about as easy (lazy) as you can get with them and just sprayed them and used them as Christmas trees on my mantel this winter. I’ve also seen old glass insulators added to them as a candle holder.
