Fall Pumpkin Wreath Update

5 Materials
1 Hour

I love the look of grapevine wreaths, but I wanted this pumpkin shaped one to be a bit lighter. So here's what I did....

Finished Project

This is the wreath that I started with. I purchased it from hobby lobby

I used a technique called dry brushing to brighten up the wreath a bit.

I laid out my wreath on some Kraft paper, poured out a little bit of ivory paint, and then dipped just the tip of a chip brush into the paint.

I then wiped majority of the paint off onto a paper towel

Then I lightly brushed over the entire wreath.

Add more paint when needed, but always wipe off most of it. You can make the dry brushing as light or as heavy as you'd prefer. Just continue doing light dry brushing coats for an even brighter look. There's no right or wrong with this technique

Before and after

There might not look like there's a huge difference in the photos, bit in person, it really brightened up the grapevine

I then used my hot glue gun and a bunch of stems from hobby lobby, and created a unique fall wreath perfect for my front door 😍

Or you can hang the pumpkin as is since it's already a super cute wreath!
