Fall Wreath with Matte Metallic Pumpkins

I admit that I’m always chomping at the bit to pull out my fall decorations and get my fall crafting on. I always feel a little guilty posting about fall before Labor Day though because I know in a few short months I’ll be wishing I had held onto summer for every last minute!

DIY wreaths are one of my favorite things to craft, especially for fall. Considering how much I love wreaths and I also love pumpkins, I can’t believe out of all of the wreaths I’ve made that I haven’t ever made a pumpkin wreath for fall! This one was by far the easiest wreath I’ve ever made and I’m loving the non-traditional neutral palette for fall that ties in beautifully with my fall entryway.

Follow along with these quick and easy steps to make a beautiful fall wreath for your front door!

Items needed:

  • Americana Decor Matte Metallics 8 oz - Ivory Pearl
  • Americana Decor Matte Metallics 8 oz - Champagne
  • Americana Decor Matte Metallics 8 oz - Aged Bronze
  • Wreath of your choice (mine is grapevine with lambs ear leaves)
  • Assorted pumpkin picks
  • Soft paintbrush

Instructions:

Paint pumpkin picks with Americana Decor Matte Metallics in Ivory Pearl and Champagne with a soft paintbrush. Depending on the color of the pumpkins you’re painting it may take 2-3 coats to fully cover.

Paint the stems of the pumpkins with Americana Decor Matte Metallics in Aged Bronze.

Wrap the wires of the pumpkin picks through the grapevine wreath to secure the pumpkins in place.

Hang your wreath on your door with zero guilt because Labor Day is the unofficial kick-off of fall, right? ;)
