CELEBRATIONS: holiday wreath from a fall wreath

Holiday Wreath from a Fall Wreath via homework | carolynshomework.comDon’t you love a bargain? I always check out the clearance section after a holiday.



Holiday Wreath from a Fall Wreath via homework | carolynshomework.comI found this fall wreath after Thanksgiving at my local pharmacy discount store. It was originally $24.99… marked down to $2.49. I could barely contain my excitement. Visions of gold, or silver or white danced in my head!


Holiday Wreath from a Fall Wreath via homework | carolynshomework.comIt wasn’t a difficult decision. My spray paint stash is running low and I only had enough silver to cover the wreath. That’s fine – I love how it turned out.


Holiday Wreath from a Fall Wreath via homework | carolynshomework.comIt took about four light coats to completely cover the wreath The berries are most like made out of some type of foam and they did shrivel ad wrinkle a little but it’s not that noticeable. Once the wreath was completely covered in silver, I gave it a final coat of clear pearl gloss for a frosty look.
