Gold everything. I’m considering that as the new title of my blog… but seriously, are you loving all things gold as much as I am right now? Especially this fall, it’s so fun adding a little element of glam to something traditional. In this case, gold leaves in a fall wreath.
Nevermind, the fact that my spring wreath is still on my front door. Let’s just be real, I can’t do it all. 😉
But I’ll tell you what – the inside of my house is saying FALL, even if it’s 99 bazillion degrees outside.
This fall wreath came about after I painted those faux leaves a few weeks ago. After I had a pile full, they were whispering to me, okay maybe that was the fumes from the spray paint but I mean really, a fall wreath from gold leaves. Seemed genius to me!
You guys know I like cheap, easy, and fabulous projects. This one fits all of those categories for sure. Ready to make one?
Gold Leaf Fall Wreath Tutorial:
Gold Spray paint
Hot glue gun
It’s true. I actually had a wire hanger in my closet. Does anyone still have those? If so, you are in luck. If not, I think some good floral wire would work fine! You’ll want to shape your wire into the desired shape. In my case, it was a circle or as round as I could get it ha.
Grab a big ol’ pile of leaves that you’ve painted gold. See more about painting faux leaves here.
Next, just start gluing your leaves onto the wire using a hot glue gun.
Keep going all the way around your wreath. I left a gap at the top of the wreath for the ribbon. I chose a black and white striped ribbon for a chic and sophisticated look.
Side note: My daughter’s been walking around my house for the last few hours with a piece of ribbon tied around her waist calling it a tutu. Probably the cutest thing ever!!
So that’s what’s new at Making Home Base today! How are you spending the first days of fall?
