The World’s Top 10 Best Things Made With 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…

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.

  1. That is a shame, but a boabab tree made from them would be amazing!

  2. Lizette says:

    Thanks for the ideas. On our farm we have a lot of rusted wire. Actually I have asked one of the workers to create a boabab tree for me. Oh he is so creative. He actually cut out “leaves” from a 2liter green sprite bottle and added onto the branches. I have also a big rusted cup and saucer and 2 plain rusted bins. Its a pitty you are not in South Africa. I am looking for someone who can have more use of it than us.

  3. I beg to differ. Couple of those I would love to make actually. The smaller stuff like the candles since there is unused barbed wire in the barn though not much of it. But then I live out where the stuff is so easy to come by.

  4. Not practical in anyway, but still cool. Just in an odd sort of way.

    Your barbed wire inspirations are cool but in practical life a No No.

  6. I thought it was genetic. Live and learn.
