Do you love old pulleys like I do?  Although hard to tell, this one is especially large and heavy.
I needed to cut the wreath so it could be strung through the hole below the hook so it wouldnt cover up the pulley.  I wired it back together once it was on.
Just a little embellishment was added with a dab of Gorilla Glue...a brass coin from my collection of small stuff!

What junker doesn't love old wooden pulley's?  And, for some reason I have an obsession with wreaths...for every season!  The two just seemed to go hand in hand for this project.  It hangs great from the fireplace mantle.
