Quick Fall Wreath Upcycle

Hello friends, it’s the middle of August and I’m beginning to get my fall crafts started.

Many of you know, as a rule, upcycling accessories is usually the way I give pieces new life.

As an example, this acorn wreath is a piece I’ve had for quite some time and since I enjoy gilding why not do a quick fall wreath upcycle?

I should also mention, I’m especially fond of acorns so this was an easy decision, also acorns begin to fall at this time in NJ.

Before the changes could begin using a clean chip brush I removed any dust.

Next, using Décor Art champagne paint and a chip brush I dry brushed the acorns randomly.

After drying for a few minutes, a wreath that needed a quick fall upcycle has new life.

Lastly, pick a ribbon and hang. It took 10 minutes to make this ordinary acorn wreath fresh for many fall seasons to come.

In short, I hope you do a quick fall upcycle to piece for your home.

  1. this is such a wonderful organic piece. Love the subtle metallic look. Over these last few years I’ve really been conscious of trying to upcycle things instead of buying new or just stashing it away. really pretty!

  2. This is really nice Cindy. I love that you used real acorn shells. Super clever.
    Have a good evening.

  3. I just love a goof upcycle and this one is awesome, Cindy! So fun that you gave your sweet wreath a new-and oh so lovely look!

  4. Way to give this wreath a totally fresh feel, Cindy! It looks so good. I love that you used real acorn shells too. It’s all just fabulous. Can’t wait to see more of your Fall decor! Hugs, CoCo

  5. I would probably have kept going with the gold paint and overdo it! I have just a few acorns but haven’t decided what to do with them yet…..


  6. What a great idea. That subtle metal color is lovely! I have only maples around my house; last year I asked a friend to collect a few acorns for a project. I don’t think I have the nerve to ask her for a LOT. Guess I’ve got to find myself a few oak trees. Your wreathe would also make a lovely centerpiece with a large candle or several tapers in candlesticks!

  7. Your wreath turned out beautiful! I love it hung with the ribbon on the pretty iron piece.

  8. Hi Cindy! Thanks so much for linking up this beautiful wreath post at SYS a couple of weeks ago. I am happy to share it tonight at Share Your Style #272. <3 Love a good craft and this gives me an idea with what to do with the thousands of acorn caps we will soon be hosting! <3

    Happy almost fall,
    Barb 🙂
