Fall Wheel Wreath
I’ve been on the hunt for an old bicycle rim with the idea to clean it up, paint it, decorate it, then hang it as a wreath but no luck so far. However, on my last craft store run to JoANN, I spied this cute rose gold metal wheel in the faux floral section and about died! I was SO giddy! Not only do I not have to upcycle an old rim, but this one is so light weight and PRETTY! I simply accented it with touches of fall to really make it shine, love our new Fall Wheel Wreath and think you will, too!
Supplies to make a Fall Wheel Wreath
- Fall Picks, variety (foliage, fall fruits, pumpkins, florals, etc.)
- Metal Wheel or Bicycle Rim painted rose gold (or metal hue of choice)
- Floral Wire or Hot Glue
- Burlap Ribbon + scissors (optional)
How to make a Fall Wheel Wreath
- Start with your foliage and secure to one side of the wheel, (floral wire or hot glue.)
- Layer faux apples or pomegranates, (or whatever you picked up from store) on top of the foliage and secure.
- Add a pick of pumpkins next and fill in any gaps as you work, secure to to wheel.
- Lastly, add some faux florals on top to tie all of the hues together and soften the wreath up a bit, secure.
- Hang with burlap ribbon (optional) or simply hang wheel on a hook.

Back to this project… here are a few tips to making a good holiday wreath: Shop early so the selection isn’t picked through. Think outside the box and use items for different purposed to make your own project unique. Lastly, have fun! I started to get frustrated when pulling fall picks together because the rose gold didn’t flow with my traditional fall hues UNTIL I plucked a faux flower from my dining room table vase and added it in… it tied the whole wreath together and I love the feminine touch it gives this wreath despite all of the deep fall hues. 😉
