Pumpkin and Moss Fall Wreath

Melissa from 320 Sycamore shares a tutorial for a beautiful fall wreath that deviates a little from the typical assortment of brightly colored leaves. Melissa glued moss to a wreath form she’d salvaged from her neighbor’s garbage the previous year and then added lots of little pumpkins. The icing on the cake is the burlap ribbon she used to hang it from her door. This  wreath will have you reminiscing of family trips to the pumpkin patch!

Instead of dropping a mortgage payment, Sonny grabbed a frame from her yard sale stash and some script wrapping paper she had and made a similar piece of artwork. With all the pretty papers out there, what a great idea to turn them into wall art!
