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.
