Today I’ve got a gorgeous Metallic Browns and Gold Leaf Fall Wreath that I painted up, just perfect for fall. I love the shimmer of the different shades. The wreath has all the tones of fall just glammed up a little bit. These Simple Burlap Fall Wreath and Updated Autumn Wreath with Corn Husks are also some of my fall favorite wreaths over the year.
I am crushing on metallics this fall, so I thought a DIY metallic autumn leaf was in order. This beautiful wreath is perfect for your porch on your front door, over your mantel/mantle, or hanging on a kitchen pantry door.
Here’s what you need to make this wreath.

Making Your Metallic Leaf Wreath
I divided up the leaves into three piles and painted each batch with one of the 3 shades. The colors I used were a worn copper shade, a beautiful rich brown tone, and a gold shade. You can see the leaves started in the traditional fall tones of orange and yellows.
Let the paint on the leaves dry completely before moving on. It should dry thoroughly in a couple hours.
Then I used a hot glue gun to attach the painted leaves into the grapevine wreath. I dapped the end tips of the leaves with some hot glue and then pushed the glued end into the grapevine wreath between the twigs.
To hang my wreath I cut a strip of burlap fabric. I think a velvet ribbon would be gorgeous
I love all these shades together! If you’re looking for great fall projects, add this one to your list. It’s the perfect diy project to kick off the fall season..
