I know, I know. It’s not even Labor Day yet and I’m talking about a fall wreath, but this one is a perfect transitional piece to get some beautiful fall colors into your home without the bright reds and oranges just yet. These yellow pom pom bushes are subtle fall yellows with a touch of buffalo check. Put them together and you have a simple, beautiful DIY wreath to start your home off for fall.
A “quick stop” by Hobby Lobby and 45 minutes later of walking through the aisles looking at nursery decor, the cutest fall pieces, and even a few Christmas ornaments, I rolled out with these simple pieces: Embroidery hoop, 3 yellow pom pom flowers, spray paint, and Welcome sign.
I picked this spray paint up and did just one quick coat on the Welcome sign to make it a warm bronze.
I ended up cutting my pom pom stems down to have them fit the hoop better without sticking out too far. When I was happy with the size, I used my hot glue gun to stick them to base of the hoop. I worked to stack them and assemble them and just glued them together. Don’t worry about the look of the base…it will all be covered with ribbon soon!
Using the ribbon I snagged, I wrapped around the base of the stems to cover the glue and all the nastiness that I didn’t worry about while I was gluing. 🙂
After I wrapped the ribbon, I tied it and let the loose ends hang. I love using ribbon with wire edges to do a more flowed look that stays. Finally, I glued on the spray painted Welcome sign and DONE!
An hour of time and I have a piece hanging in my garage entryway that gives just the hint of fall that’s right around the corner. And this is one happy mama. 🙂
