Update an Out-of-Date Harvest Wreath
I had an old wreath that I had gotten on clearance some years ago. I was going to throw this one away, but I hate throwing things away, so this one was on its way to the thrift store . After shopping for new wreaths, which were quite pricey, I decided to try to update this one. I bought a big W, some craft floral bundles (mine had cat tails and such), and some dollar store rustic pumpkins. The ribbon I already had, and same with the contact paper.
I pulled off all of the blue and purple flowers.
Then I faced the big W with contact paper. I just traced around the back side of the W onto contact paper. I cut it out a little small so that the contact paper would not go off of the edge. Then I just added the contact paper to the big W.
I started by adding the floral bundles. Next was the polka-dot ribbon. After that the big W attached with a lot of hot glue. Lastly I added the pumpkins. I have gotten so many compliments on it that it made the project worthwhile.
I decided to add a bow in the pumpkins just for some extra black.
