Farmhouse Fall Wreath from a Wicker Plate Holder

Farmhouse Fall Wreath from a Wicker Plate Holder

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done something like this. And by “this”, I mean borrow concepts from two very different projects and combine them into a new project. Apparently, my creativity can be circular! Speaking of circular, that brings me to this pile of wicker plate holders that I found at a Charlotte Region ReStore. And how I used one to make a farmhouse fall wreath.

And yes, you’ve seen me use those plate holders a couple of times before. Once as a hanging jack-o-lantern wreath and once as Boho basket wall decor!

I mean, they’re just so common at thrift stores that I can’t help myself!

Anyway, I decided to upcycle yet another one into a wreath, but as a farmhouse fall wreath. Inspired by the color palette of this neutral fall wreath:

So, keep those two projects in your mind as I meld them into a single DIY project that anyone can do!

A Neutral Wreath for Farmhouse Fall Decor

As I mentioned, these wicker plate holders for paper plates are incredibly common at thrift stores. And there are bunches of ways to repurpose them; most of which have nothing to do with eating at all!

But they’re flat, lightweight, and inexpensive, which makes for an ideal medium for wreath-making. Easy to hang, too, which is always a bonus.

To make it into a farmhouse fall wreath, I really just needed to paint it and add some inexpensive, crafty embellishments. For me, that meant felt (leftover from my felt succulents!), some green maple leaves (re-repurposed from this pumpkin project) and a laser cut sign.

Now, for my wicker plate holder, I needed a laser-cut sign that was 6″-8″ wide. I’m sure most of these are roughly the same size, but measure yours first. Ultimately, I found one at Joann Fabrics that worked like a charm! But I’m sure other craft stores offer them, too- as do websites like Etsy.

When all was said and done, this is the farmhouse fall wreath that I ended up with.

Simple and clean, inspired by those aqua-colored heirloom pumpkins that are so popular these days.

This is such an easy craft project to make, and ideal for personalizing to your own personal tastes. The hardest part, probably, would be finding the laser cut sign!

Which means you could just skip that step if you can’t find one, right? You’d still have a cute little pumpkin wreath without it.

I still have three more wicker plate holders from that stack I saw at the Habitat ReStore here in Charlotte! Which means I’ll be upcycling another one sometime soon. 


I hope you enjoyed this super simple upcycling idea for making a farmhouse fall wreath. As always, I appreciate your understanding that the full tutorial is on the ReStore blog, and not mine.
