Fall Wreath {Cheese Box Craft}

Remember my Peppermint Wreath from Christmas? That I made from a cheese box?
Well…I happened to have another cheese box in the attic and decided to paint it up like a pumpkin!
First I let my little pumpkin wipe it down with a wet paper towel to get all the dust off.

Then I gave it a little paint job.  How do you like my pizza-box-spray-paint-booth?  It took about 2.5 coats.

Then I got my little pumpkin to color in the shapes.

But it still needed something…

So I started adding burlap.

And ribbon.  Lots of ribbon.  I stapled it to the side with my staple gun alternating the loops.

I added floral wire to the inside to make a hanger.  Hint:  Use two staples on each side.

And here she is!

What do you think?  It kind of reminds me of a lion. It didn’t turn out exactly like I wanted but its growing on me.
