Hmm. What to do with all this unwanted electronic
stuff? Let's see: an old computer
mouse that no one uses anymore, all the parts from a dead power source, an old power cord, two cds, and a fan cable. Hate to just throw it away... What a waste... (Thoughtfully rubbing chin.)
Well, Flickr member Random42 had all this stuff and he knew just what to do with it: create a Geek Wreath!
He says it was inspired by the Geek Wreath featured at Boing Boing
. Says the Boing Boing caption for that wreath
: "The Geek Wreath is a simple and powerful idea: take a strand of lights and weave it around a wreath of all the goddamned power cables, spare USB
cables, obsolete SCSI cables and whatever else you've got cluttering up your home." Awesome!
Now that wreath is fab, but I'm liking Random42's wreath just a tad more. It's a little more festive looking and has a few creative artful touches. Like that old computer mouse. Yep. It's all you could want in a Christmas
decoration. It's where geek-thinking meets those traditional Christmas staples: electric lights, wreaths, and whimsy. Nothing goes to waste in this festive creation!
