Repurposed Wheel Fall Wreath

Fall will be here soon (yay!) and every year I love to create a new fall wreath… and I love putting them together, like this repurposed wheel fall wreath.

Especially when they’re as easy as this one.

I found some lovely fall foliage courtesy of my local dollar store. So pretty!

I’ve had this rusty wheel for a few years, and it’s just perfect for a fall projects like this.

I trimmed down the stems of the foliage and grabbed my handy dandy glue gun.

I glued the leaf picks into the side groove of the wheel….

And because I used my glue gun I can take it apart any time I want to.

This wheel could be repurposed in so many other ways.

I glued a few extra leaves in here and there to fill in some bare spots.

And that’s it. My fall wreath is done.

And just like the Faux Pumpkinseed Scarf Wreath and Rusty Rooster Scouring Pad Wreath from past years it was so much fun to play with the the colours of the season.

Don’t forget to pin it!

Now I’m ready for fall to arrive with its fresh crispness in the morning air, the cooler nights, and the trees in all their glorious colours.

It’s our favourite time of year.

What about you?

Thanks so much for reading and until next time,

keep on keepin’ on!

  1. Fall is my favorite time of year too and I always want a new wreath for my front door. I am tired of the same old, same old and yours is so different and fun! Love it.

    1. Me too AnnMarie! I like to have a different one every year so I make ones that can be taken apart. Saves me from having to store too many wreaths.

  2. Fun fall wreath! I’m not a huge fan of fall because it signals that winter is just around the corner. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful time of the year, and your wreath is perfect to celebrate the season and the Thanksgiving holiday.

    1. Thanks Sheila! I hear you about winter. I try not to think about that. Especially since last winter was a brutal one here. We’re hoping for a long fall this year. Hope you have one too.

  3. That is just brilliant! And beautiful! I repurposed our old fall wreath…took off all the leaves and flowers and used the form, which seemed to be sticks. Turned out pretty well! Fall is the best! Love your wreath and the two previous ones you mentioned!! Dona

    1. Thanks Dona! Your wreath sounds awesome! I love stick/twig wreaths. So rustic and pretty.

  4. That really is pretty and not too thick. I have a problem with some wreaths because of my storm door but this one looks like it would be perfect. On to look for a rusty wheel. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I have that same problem Patty. One year I made a Christmas wreath and some of the greenery froze to the storm door glass so now I’m especially mindful of that. This wreath is not much thicker than the wheel. I hope you find one soon.

  5. I LOVE everything about this wreath!! You did a great job!! Sharing it! 🙂
