First, I have to say that I agree with her-name-isn’t-really-Madigan from Madigan Made when she discusses the use of gold-colored metals in home decor.  As a child of the 80s, I’ve seen my share of tacky brass headboards and chandeliers.  But this project is tacky in a much more literal sense!  The copper ribbon is a perfect finishing touch over the layered brass thumb tacks, and I love how her thoughtful use of warm, mixed metals has a distinctly autumnal feel.  If metals aren’t your thing, add a little bit of spray paint and give the finish a look that matches your aesthetic!  [how to make a golden fall thumb tack wreath]

Project estimate:

  • Foam wreath form, $1
  • About 3 packages brass thumb tacks, $3 and up
  • Ribbon, on hand or $1

Total:  $4 and up
