Last week I shared this fun wreath project with you:
|DIY Farmhouse Spring Wreath|
I made a video and shared it on Facebook and it went CRAZY! Hobby Lobby sold out of the metal tires that day and people are having a hard time getting their hands on one. They sold out like hot cakes! So I thought I’d share some alternative wreath ideas that will give you a similar feel even if you can’t find the metal tire.
If you have a Gordmans near you, they sell the same tire in three sizes. A reader was sweet enough to send me the link.

I couldn’t add the tire to my cart, so I wonder if Gordmans is also sold out. But the item number is #112545969 if that helps you search at your local store or online.
Otherwise, here are some cute galvanized metal items that you could use to make a farmhouse style door hanging with a similar feel. (Some affiliate links used)

Next is this cute bucket with a flat back. It would be super easy to hang on your door and I can just picture a happy bouquet of tulips poking out the top.

I adore this metal shutter planter. It might be a little big for a door, but even so I want one. I would hang it in my home and switch out flowers seasonally. Isn’t it just adorable?

I found this cool metal mailbox and instantly could picture myself turning it into a flower planter. I’d open the lid and fill it with a bouquet of pretty spring flowers. I just love the farmhouse vintage vibe of it and the bird and floral detail on the front are so cute.

And the last find is this oblong metal bucket. It would also make a great door hanging filled with flowers. I’d probably drill a hole in the back to make a spot to hang it or tie thick rope around the handles and make a loop to hang it from, similiar to how the tire wreath is hung.

Lastly, if you have your heart set on a wreath made from a tire, you could upcycle a real tire and paint it. It would probably be too heavy to hang on your front door, but you could hang it on your porch or patio or inside on a wall somewhere. DIY Show Off made this cute planter and grew real flowers in it:

Anyway, I’m so sorry to all of you who wanted to make the tire wreath but couldn’t find one in stock. Hopefully this gives you some alternative ideas to get a similar look. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment here or on any of my social media channels. I’m always happy to help.
