Rustic Glam Fall Wreath

I love glitter. If you follow me at all, that fact becomes quickly apparent. I also love rustic and think it's a great look for fall. It was only a matter of time before I figured out a way to combine glitter and rustic, and my Rustic Glam Fall Wreath is the result.
I used:


18″ grapevine wreath


10″ smoothfoam wreath


brown craft paint


gold craft paint


bronze/gold/copper glitter


Mod Podge


foam brush


twine


burlap ribbon


fake wheat (real would be awesome if you can get it!)


I started by painting the smooth foam wreath brown. When it was dry, I put a layer of Mod Podge on and sprinkled the glitter to cover. When that layer was dry, I painted a top coat of Mod Podge.
I then took my grapevine wreath and painted some Mod Podge in places. I didn't want full coverage--I just wanted pops of glitter. I sprinkled the glitter, let it dry, and did a top coat.
Now it's time to attach the two wreaths. I took my twine and wrapped it around the top portion of the smooth foam wreath.
String the twine around the grapevine wreath and tie it. This will create the loop for hanging.
Tie a bundle of wheat together with twine.
Tie a bow with burlap ribbon.
Tie the wheat around a piece of the grapevine wreath.
Put the bow over the wheat where it's attached to the wreath and wrap the twine around the center. Tie it off and trim the excess twine.
I love this wreath and how the glam and rustic elements work together. For full details, please check out my blog post!

    How do you put the Modge Podge over the glitter? Do you tamp it on or paint it on? I would think that by painting it on a lot if the glitter would come off on the foam brush...?
