Months ago I was visiting one of my favorite picking places, the metal scrap yard. They had a whole bin full of metal rings from steel drums.
I grabbed four of the rings with an idea in mind. At the metal scrap yard, you pay by the pound. Like $.25 a pound! I purchased a couple of other small items that same day and I paid about $3 for everything.
Once I got them home, I didn't have to do a thing to them except assemble them into my vision, a metal garden orb.
Begin by inserting one ring into another ring. You want them to be snug.
Take a third ring and squeeze around the first two. Once it's on, you can position the rings so that they are symmetric.
Now, if there's anything hard to this project, it's this step. Take the four ring and squeeze it down around the sides of the three. This one will be horizontal to the three vertical ones.
The rings come with a clasp that's adjustable by a bolt, similar to an embroidery hoop. You may want to enlarge this ring slightly to be able to maneuver it into place. Tighten it once you have it in position.
If you haven't visited a metal scrap yard, you're in for a treat. Most are used to "artists" that are looking for pieces for projects so don't be afraid to go look around. You never know what goodies you'll find!
Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
