Your horseshoe’s life doesn’t have to end after six to eight short weeks. By repurposing them, you can enjoy them for years to come! Here are a few ideas to help get you started on your DIY journey.
- Holiday spirit
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to decorate. Instead of spending a ton of money on decor, opt for a horseshoe table decoration! This pumpkin is perfect for fall, or if you’re feeling especially bold, try a turkey.
You might need a few horses for this one, but a horseshoe flag is a rustic way to pay homage to this great country we call home.
- Jewelry organizer
Horseshoes make great home decor, especially when you need to hang something. Use a few to organize your necklaces and other western jewelry.
- Dream catcher
We’re dreaming of owning more American Quarter Horses… and maybe this dream catcher will help! A stylish twist on the traditional dream catcher, keeping your horses close to home.
- Towel racks
- Fire pit
For all of the crafty and handy horse lovers out there, this one is for you! Create a fire pit out of horseshoes and other metal materials you can find around the ranch. Repurposing just got taken to a whole new level!
