Spray painted Halloween wreath

OK, Please don’t laugh at me, laugh with me OK?

Yes, I am sharing today my recycled, re purposed spray painted Halloween wreath.


Plum and orange

I Was just diagnosed with


Doc said It’s when you just can’t throw something out, and you know you should.

You know it was only $5.00 to begin with, and you certainly can go buy a new one.

It’s when something in your head just won’t let you.

So I asked the Doctor to please give me the news…and this is what it was, as devastating as it sounds!

“You have a bad case of the Recycleititis and it is Terminal”, there is no cure, and in fact, there are many other diagnosed cases out there.

However, mine is bad, and I mean BAD!

I will be turning the shade of

PURPLE very shortly.


Lucy is very sad about this….

She was hoping I could have just left well enough ALONE!


Karianne from Thistlewood Farm had to go ahead and have a spray paint party.

Hello…does she even know me at ALL?!

I am thinking yes, that is why she is having the party:)

Spray paint, that is old hat to me now.

And of course it had to be with Krylon, some of the BEST color choices out there.

All embellished with Dollar tree items.

THey sure will miss seeing Debbiedoo’s coming in the Dollar tree on a regular basis.

They may or may not recognize me as purple….

I’ll let you know how that goes.

I do believe I am loving this color!

And that is the story of my new disease.

Oh wait you want to see all the Spray Paint colors of the past.

Well this is all I could find for now, but I do believe there were more.

And I welcome you, yet say farewell to this lovely color that was once a welcoming shade for our guests when they stepped on our front porch.

Thanks for stopping by today!

If you are not a regular here, I sure would love to see you back again.



Please share me

    OK, really love it in purple, but had to laugh when I saw the can of spray paint. I said to myself “she’s at it again” LOL. I enjoy seeing all that wreath can become. Great post, and why buy new when you can recycle the old.

    The cheapskate in me just LOVES that you didn’t toss it but used it yet again. I love the plum!
    I also liked the recycled cans post below. I’m all about using those.

    I believe this is my favorite version of that wreath. I love the purple for Halloween and the wispyness of the wreath is so perfect for Fall and Halloween! This may be an affliction that you have, but then again, don’t we all have something? Ha!!
