Fall Picture Frame Wreath



Picture frame wreaths are so much fun to make, aren't they? I like the change of pace and the supplies are inexpensive, especially if you have an old frame lying around.

I bought this frame months ago at Hobby Lobby and I'm glad I never used it. It makes a perfect rustic frame for fall. The foliage came from a cornucopia and wreath I found at Goodwill. I took them apart and used some of the pieces for this wreath. (Why not, right?)






Supplies


Picture Frame
Hot Glue Gun
Wood Letter
Artificial foliage 
Acorns
Ribbon
Valspar Spray Paint (Hubbell House Golden Maize Satin)

Directions

Decide where you want your foliage to go and attach it to the frame using a hot glue gun. I added a few things to two of the corners and layered them. I started with the leaves, then I added the berries and covered the corners with acorns.





I used Valspar Hubbell House Golden Maize (satin) spray paint for the letter. After it dried, I attached it to the frame with the hot glue gun.





I made a loop with some fall ribbon at the top for hanging and the wreath was done!

  4. Oh I love it!!!! I need the "D"!!!!! I actually have an old frame that I plan to use for my Halloween wreath. Now, you have givin me an idea for Novembers wreath. My frame came from an old canvas painting I screwed up on in the past. I took off the canvas and have a pretty frame. But I love the more rugged look of your frame. Have a wonderful week!
