If you haven’t noticed, Halloween is over, which makes my Halloween wreath horribly outdated. The inspiration for this fall wreath came from finding a cluster bouquet of fake florals in fall colors at the craft store. Since I’m obsessed with all things copper lately, I naturally wanted to incorporate it into the wreath, so I spray painted a regular green foam wreath and I loved how it turned out! I wrapped the spray painted copper wreath with this interesting jute ribbon so peeks of the copper shine through. I’m really happy with the final result, and I made it just in time for Southern California to finally get some fall weather. So, YOU’RE WELCOME, SoCal.
- Foam wreath form
- Copper spray paint
- Fake flowers in fall colors
- Jute Ribbon in Brown (I used ‘Celebrate It Occasions’ Jute Ribbon from Michael’s in brown although they don’t have brown on their website.)
- Glue gun
- Floral pins
Step 1 – Paint the wreath form using copper spray paint. Be sure to paint in a well ventilated area and protect your work surface with a drop cloth. Let dry.
Step 2 – Wrap the brown jute garland around the wreath. Pin the ends with sewing or floral pins.
Step 3 – Using hot glue, attach the fake flowers to one section of the wreath. I chose the bottom right “corner.”
Step 4 – I cut a section of the jute ribbon to hang the wreath from a nail. I looped the jute around the wreath and used a floral pin to keep it in place.
