All these articles about decluttering your home and only keeping items that bring you joy have given me craft-hoarding guilt. They have kept me from one of my favorite places ~ the thrift store.
Each day I drive by reminding myself there’s a small room in my house filled with potential projects. I do not need anything else to add to the oh-I-really-need-this thrift store pile. But one day last week I couldn’t help myself. Thank goodness I made that turn because I found the most amazing pinecone wreath!
Well… the pinecone wreath wasn’t exactly amazing but let me show you how to make a fall wreath from this thrift store find. Instead of a sad Christmas decoration it is now a White Pumpkin Pinecone Wreath that is perfect for a fall mantel.
Here’s my fabulous find. A slightly beat up pinecone wreath decorated straight from the early 90’s.
I’ve had my eye on pinecone wreaths for a while now. They are quite pricey and way over my budget. So with a price tag of $7 there was no way I could leave this beauty on the shelf.
I could have made my own DIY pinecone wreath but just look at all the wire on the back of this wreath. It would take me forever to recreate this.
Next I grabbed small faux pumpkins from the Dollar Store and changed them into white pumpkins with the help of cream and leaf green craft paint.
Once the white pumpkins were dry I added them to wreath using craft wire. The sweet little green pinecones came from our Thanksgiving tablescape last year. I love the pop of color they add. Plus the painted pinecones are a perfect match of the green striped ribbon.
The bow was made from wide, wired cloth ribbon using the easiest bow making technique ever!
The White Pumpkin Pinecone Wreath is a fresh addition to my DIY fall decor. How to make a fall wreath is a snap thanks to a fantastic thrift store find and a few handpainted white pumpkins!
I’m ditching traditional fall colors this year in favor of whites and greens. The new White Pumpkin Pinecone Wreath is the star and I can’t wait to reveal the entire fall mantel soon!
