Top 10 Creative and Best Repurposed Barbed Wire

Today I am the unhappy owner of a bruised knee. I got it because while out walking the dog and I tripped over some hidden barbed wire and had a soft landing on my knee. But don’t worry, it really isn’t all that bad at all, but I did have to wonder if there was a better use of barbed wire other than being left to be tripped over! Well, it turns out that in people can make some rather amazing things with it! So without further ado, I bring you…

10 – That is one tough spider!

These rather amazing spider-webs are not only made from barbed wire but also available to buy! So why not bring a touch of style and art to a party this coming Halloween.

9 – Not one to reach for in the dark!

This whole top 10 is likely to divide opinions, and none more so than these candle holders made with everyone’s favourite spiky wire. I like these but like said opinions will be split.

8 – From Garden Fences to Garden Beauties

Have you ever fancied owning a little bit of art? Well, why not get one of these amazing Trellis artworks made with nothing but barbed wire! While not get if you have kids I think they would make a fantastic talking point and well worth the money.

7 – You wouldn’t want to change the light bulb!

This rather scary looking chandelier is located at G.A.D Stockholm and is kind of cool, but also kind of dangerous looking! Made it is the fact that they have used brand new barbed wire to make it. I do like it, but I just wouldn’t want it in my home.

6 – On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Five golden Barbs!!!

Kind of odd but also rather beautiful is where we find this gold-plated bit of barbed wire shaped like a ring! Not the best idea to propose with it, but for a gift it ranks right up there!

Heart Statue made from Barbed Wire

5 – The Tale of Two City’s

Located in Hviezdoslavovo square in Bratislava is this rather amazing statue called “The Heart of Europe” and is in memory of the Velvet Revolution. What is even more amazing is that the statue is said to a made from barbed wire cut from the actual fence that divided Czechoslovakia from western Europe! Cool and also very moving.

4 – Ride em Cowboy!

This rather painful cowboys hat can be seen at the Devil’s Rope Museum in Texas and while it is not wearable it is still really cool. I wonder how long it took them to make it?!?

3 – Punknam Style

A bit too punk rock for my liking but still a great item if you are in touch with your darker side. The barbed wire is made of rawhide and it comes with 3 evil-looking cast resin skulls.

Birds Nest made from Barbed Wire

2 – Rusty Little Birds

This incredible piece of garden art made by Bob Pool is one of the best uses of otherwise useless rusty garden tools and barbed wire you will ever see. With the baby birds being made from old pliers and a barbed wire nest, it is just a joy to look at.

1 –  The Worlds Most Pointless Garden Furniture

These incredible and also rather pointless garden chairs (and the mat under them) are made from 100% zinc coated barbed wire. Made by wire sculpture artist ‘Benni Efrat’ from Israeli it was seen at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Fancy trying them out? You first!
