    DIY Welded Horseshoe Wreath

    By Hobart Welding Team

    Welding is an incredibly useful practice, whether a hobby, a profession, or anywhere in between. If you’re just getting started, many types of welders are easy to get the hang of – for instance, the Hobart Handler 190 MIG Welder used for this DIY horseshoe project. This type of welder works well on steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. (Learn about the 190 and other types of welders here).

    Check out the step-by-step instructions for this DIY Welded Horseshoe Wreath, which makes a great handmade decoration for your barn, home, or front door!

    Shielding gas – We used 75% Argon/25% CO2 (Or 100% CO2 will work)

    How-To:

    Step 1 – Clean off any rust/mill scale -- use grinder with wire brush to give you the nice shiny finish.

     

    Step 2- Place horseshoes face down on a flat table with the star pattern in the center.  Tip: Use paint marker to mark horseshoes.

     

    Step 3 – Adjust horseshoes to even out and center star.  Tip: Use marks to make sure it’s even.

     

    Step 4 – Tack weld horseshoes together using welder. Weld the horseshoes so the tacks are hidden on the back side of the horseshoe.  Tip: Set your Handler 190 to 6 for voltage and 70 for wire feed speed. (1/4” setting on the parameter chart).

     

    Step 5 – Weld horseshoes together.

     

    Step 6 – Let horseshoes cool.
