Repurposed Wheel Fall Wreath

4 Materials
30 Minutes

With the end of August clearly in sight I like to start thinking about fall projects. It's my favorite time of year, and I love creating a new wreath for the front door every season.

This easy fall wreath just needs two things... a very rusty wheel from my stash and some lovely fall foliage courtesy of my local dollar store. So pretty!

I trimmed down the stems of the fall foliage, and grabbed my handy dandy glue gun.

That's all I needed to put this wreath together.

I glued the leaf picks into the side groove of the wheel....

...going around in a sprial-like pattern.

This went very quickly.

The fall-colored leaves really accent the wheel beautifully, and because I used my glue gun I can take it apart any time I want to.

This wheel could be repurposed in so many other ways.

I glued a few extra leaves in here and there to fill in some bare spots.

And that's it. My fall wreath is done.

This was a quick and easy project that would make a lovely fall welcome to any front door.

    How big is the wheel you used?

    Very cool ! Great idea. For those that don't have an old small wheel to use, I sort of wonder if an old clothesline reel might work as well?

    Love the wheel look though. Thanks for sharing.

    Did you have any problems where the hot glue was affected by the weather,and didn't hold? Your idea is adorable.

    This has caught my eye on more than one email. It's really beautiful! Thank you for sharing it. I just wish I had more luck finding old wheels like that--I've been looking for more than a year and have only come across 1 wooden wheel. But now I know to keep looking so I can build a "stash" like yours. :)
