Let the Fall decorating begin! I’ve been busy adding a few Fall touches to welcome the new season. This year I made a wreath using a faux pumpkin that I cut in half and stenciled.
I added bits and pieces of fake greenery that I have used over and over again, to a grapevine wreath. The colors are so much prettier in person.
On the porch, I moved the gigantic coleus to the side and will probably add a few real pumpkins or squash. I can’t believe how big they got on their own… no miracle grow used at all! They’ll be good until frost hits them.
I used a fake pumpkin that I got on sale at Michaels.
My jigsaw cut through the fake pumpkin like butter. I didn’t realize that they were hollow inside. You could probably just use a knife.
After cutting, there was a bit of a rough edge that I smoothed easily with my finger.
Next I used one of my Royal Design stencils. The color is Annie Sloan chateau grey, which I’d describe as olive drab. A round surface and a flat stencil is not the greatest combination. It’s a good thing I wasn’t going for perfection!
I had to add a frame to hold the pumpkin, so I pushed a couple sticks into the wreath frame and wired them together. The pumpkin is glued to the sticks.
And there it is! A new Autumn wreath to welcome you!
The other half of the pumpkin is on the mantel and that post is coming soon. How are you decorating this year? Did you put a pretty wreath on the front door?
