It has been way too long since I made and shared a DIY wreath project with you all. That is why I am a super stoked about today’s simple, cheap tutorial – a gorgeous gilded wreath to adorn your front door. You are going to need just a few supplies and an hour to create your very own. Let’s get started!
Plastic or foam pumpkins and gourds (I got mine for 50% off at Michaels)
Krylon Dual spray paint in metallic gold, or your favorite color
A wreath form, or cardboard with and scissors(I used a pizza box)
Hot glue gun and sticks
Ribbon to coordinate with your paint choice
Drop cloth or old sheet to protect surface from overspray
Begin by laying out your pumpkins on the drop cloth. This project is best done outside since you will be spray painting.
Spray pumpkins per instructions on can. Make sure you are using paint that has primer in it. If not, you will need to prime the pieces first. I love Krylon Dual because it has paint and primer in one. It is my go to product for spray painting.
Now for the wreath form. I showed you how to make your own from cardboard in this DIY Poinsettia Wreath tutorial. For this project, I wrapped the cardboard wreath form in duct tape for durability since I planned to hang the wreath outdoors.
Before attaching the painted, dry pumpkins, place the ribbon around the wreath. Hot glue it into place, then begin attaching pumpkins.
It’s as easy as that!
TIP: For more cohesiveness, once all the pumpkins are in place, use the same spray paint to spray the wreath form where it is visible in the spaces.
