Wreaths are a great way to add holiday festivity and it can be so simple and quick, even if you don't consider yourself 'crafty.'  I have a plain grapevine wreath that I dressed up with a wooden pumpkin hanging in the middle.  It was a very simple craft and it will be very easy to swap it out when fall is over.

Items needed:

  • Americana Decor Outdoor Living 8oz - Harvest
  • Americana Decor Outdoor Living 8oz - Picket Fence
  • Americana Decor Outdoor Living 8oz - Iron Gate
  • Walnut Hollow Wood Pallet Pumpkin
  • Twine
  • Drill
  • Sandpaper

Instructions:

Mix the two paints together in a 5:1 ratio, with white being the higher ratio.  Paint the wood pumpkin with this color.  Let it dry.

Paint another coat in the Picket Fence color.  Let it dry.

Free hand the phrase 'Happy Fall Y'all!' with a pencil (it's a good idea to practice on paper first and draw your perimeters for the words on the pumpkin.)

Using a fine paintbrush, paint the words in black.

Sand the pumpkin until it's smooth and distressed.

Drill a hole in the stem and thread the twine through it.  Tie the pumpkin onto the wreath.

Hang your new fall wreath on your front door and enjoy!
