I pinned it and then I made it!

I pinned this wreath yesterday and was inspired enough to actually try it out. It was super easy and fast to make, plus I was able to get everything needed for under $20!

The Martha Stewart Glitter Acrylic Paint that I used might just be my favorite paint of all time.

Fake fall leaves and ribbon. The directions for this wreath said to use stips of burlap, but I wasn't able to find any. I hate that Michaels doesnt carry fabric! Maybe Michael should take advice from JoAnn.

I saw this idea on pinterest as well! I used push pins to hold the letters off the table for easier (and cleaner!) painting.

I ended up buying too different colors of the paint because I wasnt sure how either would turn out. It turned out that I needed both! The Brownstone was a litle too dark and the Florentine Gold was a little too light. I used the Brownstone first then added a top coat of the gold. The two colors together gave the letters a really nice bronze color, which I think is perfect for fall.

Also, the wreath from pinterest only had one letter. I decided to add the K & J to complete the monogram.

While the letters were drying, I assembled the wreath by layering the ribbon and leaves and securing each one with a dab of hot glue.

And here is the final product!

I finally took it outside and hung it on the front door
Please excuse the crookedness of the letters, it's just the angle of the picture. Trust me, I am way too OCD to deal with crooked letters.

Happy Fall...Finally!

Have you actually made something that you pinned?

Since your done here, please go and follow me on Pinterest!
