Whether you have several old horseshoes laying around the barn or just want to redo your homestead in a more western theme, there are plenty of ways you can incorporate horseshoes into your hobbies and decor. Even if you need to go buy a few new ones to work on one of these projects, it won’t put you out more than a few bucks!
Are boots starting to clutter your hallway or mudroom? This welded horseshoe boot rack gets them up off of the floor so that you can sweep underneath and not lose track of where everyone’s shoes are. It’s a great way to keep muddy rubber boots off of that clean tile!
Nothing says “porch time” like the sound of a wind chime jingling in the breeze. You can make this design with as few as four or five horse shoes, or redesign it to come up with your own style. Some people opt for a louder alternative, and make a bell to easily call everybody in for chow.
Horse Shoe Boot Jack
As long as you’ve got the tools to reshape the top horseshoe into the normal “Y” of a boot jack (and the welding equipment to fuse them together, of course,) you can make one of these for every cowboy in the family.
Horse Shoe Wine Rack
Ready for a tall glass of Merlot after a long day of work? There are dozens of different horseshoe wine rack designs to choose from. Most are countertop variations, but if you need to save space, we recommend a wall mounted option.
Cowboy Door Knocker
Prefer to have a knocker instead of a doorbell? Want to add a bit of personal flare to your front porch? This minimalist horse shoe knocker design is an easy project.
Drink Tub and Holder
Whether your cowboy prefers a nice cold Coca Cola or a Coors, this patio (or campfire) accessory is sure to be a hit. You might even want to make a few of them as gifts for your favorite cow pokes.
Cowgirl Jewelry Holder
Who says that horseshoes have to stay outdoors? If your cowgirl enjoys wearing jewelry, she needs a place to keep things tidy and easy to get to. This horseshoe jewelry rack can be hung in your bathroom or bedroom for both organization and flare!
Although it might be a little heavier than your average wreath, this horseshoe version can hang year round. Just add a ribbon for whatever holiday is coming up, and it will incorporate plenty of seasonal charm into your home.
