When my friend Ariel from PMQ for Two asked me to join her Fall eclectic wreath blog hop, I was thrilled! Finding creative ways to repurpose items into new decor gets me excited. No need to rush to the craft store for every seasonal piece, just shop the house (and maybe the dollar store) and let your imagination run wild. Be inspired by this collection of DIY eclectic Fall wreaths.
If you are coming from Jennifer Priest, welcome!!
What you need:
An empty frame
Dollar store greenery and pumpkins (eucalyptus and pinecones )
Craft paint (gold, white, and teal)
Put it together:
The stems I found are Japanese persimmon (thanks to the knowledge of my readers!).
First, trim the vegetable (pumpkin, gourds, or fruit), and pull off stems and leaves to prepare for painting.
Spray paint a couple of light coats or use a sponge brush and craft paint to change the colors of the squash into non-traditional Fall colors. The colors I had on hand are gold, white, and teal.
After the gourds are dry, re-attach the stems. Use florist wire to attach all of the greenery to the wreath. Hot glue pinecones into place last.
Use a forest animal to add some quirk to your modern eclectic wreath!
