I like a little bling in my life. Sometimes a little shimmer can add that certain something that a project is missing.  So when I was working on my fall wreath - that is the direction I decided to take.


I started with these bunches of fall florals that I bought in 2008.  No cost there.   And they were beautiful - but I wanted to take it to another level.

So I invited a couple of friends out to help.  Psst - don't tell the others but Sparkling Canyon is my favorite.

So I gave the leaves and berries a couple light passes.  Just enough to give some shimmer without taking out too much of the color.

Added those to the grapevine wreath I already had and voila - we have wreath!  Wanna see the final result???  Here it is!

Squeel!!!  I LOVE it.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Oh - I also took a white chipboard S (that I got at Michael's years ago) and spray painted it ORB.  Then tied it on with a little red ribbon (leftover from our wedding).


So if you are keeping track that is a total cost of zero.  Nada, nothing, zip!

Everything it took to make this wreath I already owned!  I don't know if I have ever loved a free creation more!  Looks great with our brick too I think!  Now I just need to get some great mums and pansies to brighten up the bottom of our porch.(UPDATE:  If you love this wreath - you have to see what I made for the bottom of the porch!  Hop over and check out my shimmery pumpkin topiary!)

But the top, well that is covered!   Here is one last close up to you before we go!  Sigh!  Did I mention that I LOVE it!

So what do you think?  Is a little bling a good thing? :)  I sure think so!

You did a fantastic job of making it your own and it's really beautiful.

Elizabeth @ Southern Comfort said... @ September 19, 2010 at 8:47 PM

So pretty! Great job (as always). I am so ready for fall here in NC, but with it still in the low 90's during the day makes it really hard to be motivated. I guess I could be if I had a pretty wreath to work with... :)

Wendy said... @ September 19, 2010 at 9:04 PM

Oh my goodness! I wouldn't never thought to spray paint the leaves. I love it! Perfect for fall.

Sandy said... @ September 19, 2010 at 9:08 PM

eroomje said... @ September 20, 2010 at 7:50 AM

I love it and I love that it didn't cost anything. I don't think one can have too much bling! I am going to get our initial for the center of the wreath I made. What a great idea! Thank you for sharing with us.

Jen said... @ September 20, 2010 at 7:53 AM

Just Gorgeous!!! I love spray paint!!
And I'm a sucker for a monogramm ...escpecially an "S" (I'm an "S" too)!

Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle said... @ September 20, 2010 at 8:29 AM

That's so pretty Jess. I could see a wreath like this at the center of a Thanksgiving table with candles in the center.

Miss Char said... @ September 20, 2010 at 8:57 AM

Well you did a great job, and the price sure was right. I've been looking for a new color to paint a tin bucket for my front, I think you just gave me the perfect answer AND I love the letter hanging in the middle of the wreath. I've got to tuck that one away in my memory too. Thanks for some great Monday ideas.

Kasey said... @ September 20, 2010 at 9:36 AM

Love the fact that you spray painted the 'leafs'. Gives it that extra pop of character... and of course love the monogram! :)

Tammy@ Not Just Paper and Glue said... @ September 20, 2010 at 10:34 AM

I love this idea of spray painting the leaves. Of course, I am always up for a little (or a lot of) bling! ;)

Darcy from The I.Design Box said... @ September 20, 2010 at 10:54 AM

Beautiful! It feels Martha inspired with the shimmer. I really like the color combination. Gorgeous for fall. Great way of reusing what you have.

the cape on the corner said... @ September 20, 2010 at 11:05 AM

oh my goodness, that's fantastic jess! never would have thought to do that, but i love it! love it!

as far as the candles, i can't vouch for almond cookie yet, but autumn wreath...i just wanted to eat it.

Melanie {The Tiny Tudor} said... @ September 20, 2010 at 12:00 PM

emily @ the happy home said... @ September 20, 2010 at 1:11 PM

oh. oh. i 'm so doing this this weekend! i've been grumping about how little sparkle our house has, and this is PERFECT! it can hang from an S hook through one of the holes in our metal screen/safety door!

Mruna Mistry said... @ September 20, 2010 at 3:33 PM

Love it ...looks so awesome with the metallics...

Donna Lynn said... @ September 20, 2010 at 5:07 PM

Marlene Smith said... @ October 25, 2010 at 5:56 PM

I used your color scheme idea. I bought a fall wreath, took it apart and painted it with the same color spray paints that you used and it turned out fabulous!!! I also did a three tiered pumpkin topiary and painted them in the matching colors! Looks so sophisticated! L-O-V-E it! Keep the great ideas coming!

goldfine said... @ November 2, 2010 at 6:14 PM

This is super-cool. I've been on the hunt for funky, non-cheezy fall decor, and I think I've found inspiration!

Where did you get the spray paint?

Mollie said... @ November 2, 2010 at 9:23 PM

Absolutely stunning! I took down all my Halloween stuff today and my house is so bare! My front door definitely needs a wreath like that...off I go shopping tomorrow. Thanks for the tut and inspiration:)
