Hello Fall Pumpkin Wreath

Hello Fall Pumpkin Wreath

Spruce Up an existing Wreath with StyleTechCraft Vinyl and Fall Dollar Tree finds.

I have a simple boxwood wreath* that I purchased a few years ago that I love.

The best thing about the wreath is I can leave it plain (which I do a lot of the year).

Or, I can change it with the seasons.

Here’s how I changed my wreath for the Fall Season.

Not counting the wreath, acrylic paint, and vinyl that I had on hand,

I spent a total of $7 at Dollar Tree*  to Change Up the Wreath for Fall.

Hello Fall Pumpkin Wreath

I found this cute pumpkin cut-out* at Dollar Tree* and wasn’t sure what I would do with it.

But I knew I better pick it up while I was there. (those things seem to sell out real fast)

It turned out to be the perfect accent for my Hello Fall Pumpkin Wreath.

  • Place the words onto the pumpkin using transfer tape*.
  • Rub over the words with a vinyl scraper tool to make sure “the words” have transferred.

  • To make the Dollar Tree Mini Pumpkin Clips* match the painted wood pumpkin, I decided to paint them using the same acrylic paint colors.
  • Remove the stem and the metal clip from the pumpkin.
  • Because the mini pumpkins have a slick surface, I needed to prime the pumpkins with multi-media paint first.
  • For ease of painting, place a bamboo skewer* in the mini pumpkin. Paint with multi-media paint. After the paint has dried, paint with the same colors used on the wood pumpkin.
  • Reinsert the stem. Glue the clip in place using the glue gun*.

If you don’t need a new wreath, the finished pumpkin would also look great in a Fall Display.

Hello Fall Mini Candle Cup

I found this cute little ceramic cup on a recent trip to Hobby Lobby.

As adorable as it was, it looks even better with StyleTechCraft Vinyl on it.

In my opinion, adding a little vinyl makes most things a little better.

At first, I thought about saving the mini cup for my grandsons. 

I knew they’d get a kick out of the tiny cup.

Who wouldn’t love a mini cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows?

Then I figured I’d spend too much time constantly refilling it.

So I thought again. (sometimes, you got to think these things through)

How to make a Frosted Pinecone Wreath

Frosted Pinecone Wreath

Autumn has come to the Midwest bringing with it crisp air and colorful leaves. 

I’ve even given up my flip flops for socks and shoes…

I like Autumn.

Really I do.  (If only it’d turn right back into Summer.)

Now that I’ve given up on Summer, I thought I’d better start with my Fall Decorations.

I like making projects that serve more than one purpose.

Like this Pinecone wreath.   After I’m done with my Fall Decorations…

I plan on adding red berries and re-making it into a Christmas Wreath.
