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.
Hello Fall Pumpkin Wreath
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.

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.

- Lightly sand the pumpkin with the sanding block* to smooth out the grains in the wood. Wipe away dust.
- Paint the pumpkin with Jack-O’-Lantern Orange* acrylic paint. Give the pumpkin highlights using Orange Twist* and Marigold* acrylic paint. Paint the top of the stem with brown acrylic paint.
- Using an SVG File (from the Silhouette Store) and my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine*, cut out the words “hello fall” out of StyleTechCraft orange and red glossy craft vinyl.
- 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*.
- Dollar Tree Mini Pumpkin Clips* Before and After.
- Cut apart the Fall Floral Pick and glue the pieces onto the bottom of the pumpkin using a Xyron Multi-Stick Glue Gun*.
- Create a simple bow using Ribbon and Twine and glue it onto the pumpkin.
- Tie the finished pumpkin to the top of the wreath with twine.
- Clip-on Mini Pumpkin Clips and insert fall picks.
Fall Crafting with Vinyl…
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)
