Repurposing vintage items is so exciting! The ridges on this bundt pan reminded us of the shape of a pumpkin. That is how we came up with the idea of this fall wreath.

Here are the things you need to gather together before starting this project:

  • Vintage Bundt Pan
  • TSP Cleaning Solution
  • Old Cloth
  • Gloves
  • Kilz Primer Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Foam Paint Brush
  • Orange Acrylic Paint
  • Burlap Ribbon
  • Safety Pin
  • Hot Glue & Gun
  • Small Piece of Wood
  • Artificial Flowers and Greenery

Step 1: Clean bundt pan with TSP Cleaner. This helps remove an non-stick coating that causes paint not to adhere.

Step 2: Paint the bundt pan with Kilz Primer. This is another step to help the paint adhere to the pan. We tried skipping these steps and the paint would not stick.

Step 3: Once the primer is dry, it's time to paint the pan with the acrylic coat.

Step 4: We wanted to give the look of the veins on our pumpkin, so before the acrylic paint dried, we took a Q-tip and wiped off the paint here and there.

Step 5: Decide how long you'd like your ribbon to hang your wreath and secure the ribbon together with a safety pin. Pin as close to the bundt pan as possible. The tighter the ribbon the better.

Step 6: Using hot glue, glue the small piece of wood to look like the stem on your pumpkin. This adds adorable character to your wreath. We found an old branch on the ground and cut the wood about 2" long.

Step 7: Glue the greenery on the pan, hiding the end of the stems under the ribbon.

    Would it look less like a bundt pan if you stuck a stubby stick in the hole for a stem?

    PLS HELP, My bathroom was this beautiful but now it needs help. How do I properly clean the slate tile and grout. Its beginning to have a mood & mildew smell. Pls help me ty

    • Go to the automotive section and buy some bleach white! You can find it at the dollar store! It is what they use on the white wall of tires! Spray on your grout let sit for a few minutes scrub with toothbrush or some other scouring pad and wipe clean! Once you get it all clean use grout sealer! This can also be used on fiberglass tubs for soap scum etc... just be careful it will bleach rugs and cArpet! Also Kurd Kutter from Lowe’s works great!
