Simple Farmhouse Decor: Upcycled Frame and Wreath

Welcome to another month of simple farmhouse decor!  In past months, I made a Simple Summer Farmhouse Centerpiece and a Mason Jar “Choose Joy” Display.   This month, I made an Upcycled Frame and Wreath!!

This crazy easy DIY sits atop the DIY Farmhouse Shelves I just blogged about a few weeks ago.  I couldn’t be more excited that the decor for these shelves is finally coming along.

Side note: I hope you guys love the simple farmhouse decor series.  All of these projects you can make in an afternoon and are budget friendly.  My goal is to make crafting and DIYing an attainable project and I’m so so excited to continue this series.


This little project started when my mom picked up a dingy old frame at a yard sale for $1.  The frame begged for some lovin’ being a dirty gold color and lacking glass and backing.

Little dingy frame sat on my living room shelves for many months before an idea came to mind.

It needed paint.  Why didn’t I think of that before??  I think I hoped to magically fall in love with its old rustic chipping gold paint.  You know I’m constantly rambling about loving the rustic, distressed look.  I HAD to love the gold.

Well, I didn’t.  Busted!  I guess I don’t love every distressed looking piece.

Moral of this tangent story: use that paint, girl!  Paint transforms everything.

I painted (gasp!) the gold frame with Martha Stewart Vintage Decor Paint in Linen.  I love the intricate details of the frame and how the off-white color really makes it pop.

{I actually used one of my kid’s paint brushes for this step.  Don’t judge!!}

The frame actually looked so pretty after two coats of paint that I considered leaving it like that.

I was afraid that it would be drowned out on the farmhouse shelves being so neutral.  So, I decided to make a quick wreath that could hang from the top of the frame and bring it some color and attention.

I used a 6″ grapevine wreath and some various faux boxwood sprigs I had lying around.  Please tell me you guys have extra faux florals lying around, too!?  I can’t be the only hoarder 😉

Armed with my glue gun, I placed each piece into the grapevine wreath then used any extras to fill in gaps.

Lastly, I wrapped twine around the frame and wreath to hold it roughy centered.

  1. That’s so pretty, I can’t wait for the autumn to come! I was thinking to make something like this from metallic paper, to add to my door. I love that it doesn’t even go off and you can use it next year again.

  2. It turned out really well. Yes, you have to love something in order to really enjoy them in your home. I had a piece of art that was gold framed but eventually, it did not go along with my decor. I painted it white and loved it more. Thank you for sharibg these easy decor ideas.
