While I love my fall wreath from last year, I needed something new. And I LOVE this wreath even more.
I am so excited about enjoying it until the Christmas decorations go up!
If you haven't figured it out yet, I love gold and I think gold and orange together is SO pretty for fall.
I'm loving the orange and gold with that vibrant green, too.
I got my inspiration from this beautiful wreath on Etsy:
If you'd like to make a wreath like mine, read on!
First lets paint some pumpkins. Find some dollar store pumpkins. Paint some gold and then leave the rest orange. I used pumpkins that were all roughly the same size. Above you can see that I also "antiqued" the gold pumpkins as well. I love that look.
I used gold spray paint to paint all the pumpkins gold first and then once dry, I used this water-based stain in Walnut. I got the idea to antique pumpkins from here, but my process was a little different since I used a different paint.
Paint your gold pumpkin completely with the stain and then use a clean paper towel to wipe off the stain where you don't want it. Let dry. Easy!
Making the wreath is super easy too.
This part is optional, but makes the wreath look clean and professional. Wrap the straw wreath form in strips of green fabric. (You only need half a yard.)
Then use hot glue to attach moss to the front part of the wreath. There's no need to waste the moss on the back of the wreath since it's covered with the green fabric.
Then simply glue on your pumpkins! If you want to add some berries, simply stick in some springs on the sides. I didn't even glue this part.
Add a fun bow to the top.
And enjoy. :)
Hope you love it!
I'll be linking this up to my favorite parties on my sidebar.
Oh and I know that some of you may have thought I died...since I haven't posted in ever. But no worries-I've just had a lot going on at school and in life. More to come on that later. :) Have a fabulous rest of your week!
