Copper Inspiration

You know how one thing leads to another and before you know it the glue gun is out? That’s how I got here, to this place with this vintage copper bundt pan wreath. You see, I’d found these sweet copper star lights and they were amazing against the dark blue of my accent wall but they looked a little bit lonely hanging there on their own. They needed a buddy. They needed just one more thing.


These copper pans are easy to find at thrift shops and they aren’t expensive at all. I found this one in a second hand shop so I paid a little more than thrift store prices at $8 but it was absolutely the perfect thing so I coughed up the cash and brought it home. At the dollar store I found a pack of little pine cones and the birdie too. I also used a couple of sprigs off a vine of artificial red berries I already had and a bit of ribbon. So all in, this baby cost me around ten bucks and I think that’s fantastic.


There really isn’t much to say in the way of ‘how to’ here. Find your bits and glue them on with a hot glue gun. I laid mine out on the kitchen counter to get an idea of how I wanted it to go together. I love red berries and they go so nicely with the copper. They are easy to work with as well because they’re wired. Just clip some off with some wire snips or strong scissors. I went with a less is more approach but you could make it as full and glamorous as you wanted really.




To hang, loop some ribbon through the center and tie in a bow. A single nail in the wall was more than adequate to support this copper wreath. This was a super fast DIY and I just love the end result. It’s festive enough for the holidays but I can leave it up all winter long with these little star twinkle lights.  Above is what it looks like during the day and below is in the evening with the little lights on.


I’m in such love with all of this that I don’t know if I’ll be able to bring myself to take them down in the spring. I don’t have to ….do I?
