Hi For a pumpkin contest at school my daughter wants to do Cinderella with the coach and clock tower. We were working on a paper mache coach but the hubby suggest we get a small gourd instead since the coach was a pumpkin. Anyway which ever we decide to use is going to need wheels. I'm not sure how to make them I found some ideas, using wire and paper mache but they're not quite what I was looking for. Of course the back up plan is cardboard if I can't find anything else, but I was hopeing with all the crafty folks on here maybe someone might know a fancy way to create the wheels so they would look nice.
Thank you.

This example looks like it uses curls of heavy wire, painted:  http://www.ornament-shop.com/pic/98/qxd4083.jpg

Thanks, Maybe I can make something from a wire coat hanger or thick jewelry wire.

You could also check out floral wire. I have some wide floral wire that's really easy to bend and shape. It isn't very sturdy - couldn't hold up a pumpkin - but you could probably get some nice curved lines and not spend a bundle Smiley.
