It’s almost my favorite time of year, and almost time to hang my new DIY metallic fall wreath! I wanted to make a new wreath this year, and I wanted it to be very different from anything that I had seen. I did not want to make a round wreath because I was striving for different. I am thinking square. If you have been reading my blog, you have seen how I am loving using metal finishes in my home. I think shiny things make your home look elegant.
I went to my favorite home decor shop known as the dollar store. I love to go in there to look around, pick up cheap crap, and get inspired. I found these tiny plastic pumpkins and gourds, and I thought I could spray them metallic colors. The copper ones came that way, and I did not do anything to change them.
I came home and walked around my garage looking for something to use for my wreath. I found a green frame and spray painted it gold.
Okay, now I need a bow. I have plenty of burlap ribbon but that is too rustic for my DIY metallic fall wreath. I have nothing else so I have to make the burlap work.
I had some garage sale stickers so I spray painted them gold, and I also glued them to the ribbon so they would not fall off after I tied the bow.
I feel like the gold dots dresses the burlap up and goes well with my metallic wreath.
I purchased some copper leaves at Dollar General to add to my wreath.
I spray painted the cheap pumpkins gold and silver, and it totally changes the look. It’s all about making cheap look beautiful. After the pumpkins dried, I attached them to the frame with hot glue.
Oh my, my DIY metallic fall wreath looks better than I thought it would. It’s amazing how creative you can get when you are trying to make something beautiful for your home without spending much money.
I love this, looks so expensive too

This would be perfect for my front door. The square frame is a great foundation and the metallics work like a charm! We have a glass storm door and the wreaths on the wooden door seem to get lost. This is going to work just fine!
I love how this turned out! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday. 🙂
Sherry, this is such a nice and different fall wreath! I love that you used a frame and added dollarstore items to it, it looks so elegant and like way more than what you’ve spent! I miss the dollar store so much, I loved going, just like you, buying cheap decor and make something beautiful out of it!
Metallic colors are great for fall! Thanks for sharing your pretty wreath with us at Brag About It! Pinned to share.
