Before I get to the tutorial, this is a picture of the wreath before spray painting. I found this wreath in the end-of-season clearance section at JoAnn craft store. Not only was it on sale, I also received another 50% off because it was slightly damaged…score!

Tip: Take advantage of end-of-season wreath sales. Check your local discount stores and home stores too. At Home stores has an entire end-of-season section for up to 75% off. I picked up another wreath for about $12 that I’ll be updating for fall. I prefer buying end-of-season wreaths because it’s already decorated and I don’t have to worry about buying florals or putting together a wreath.
