Start with your average faux pumpkin (or a real one)

Add  a coat of DBP in Sage Green or Butter Creamy, maybe even Gulf blue or Plum Crazy for extra fun!

Allow to dry and then add a light glaze of Van Dyke Brown for an aged appearance and weathered look.

Add your embellishments like jute or fall leaves, use your imagination and VOILA!

DIY a Fall Wreath

Using craft sticks a little paint and glue make your own wreath!!!  Dixie Bell Paint coverage is awesome.  You will love using it on your projects!

Dixie Belle Paint: Flamingo Chalk Mineral Paint and Van Dyke Brown Glaze
Large Craft Sticks
Tacky Glue
Floral stem

Cut 2 rings the size you would like your wreath (for sturdiness tacky glue the 2 rings together).  Outside of the ring is 8 inches across and the center 4 inches.

Tie a 12 inch piece of  ribbon around the cardboard to use to hang the wreath with when finished.

Layer about 50 large craft sticks with tacky glue on the cardboard, set aside to dry. 

A look from the back of the wreath.

Once the glue is dry paint with Dixie Belle Flamingo Chalk Mineral Paint
