Farmhouse Vintage Funnel Fall Door Wreath

Vintage Funnel Fall Door Wreath

How to turn a chippy old door panel and a rusty vintage funnel into a fun and funky Fall Door Wreath that can be used all year long!

Turn a vintage funnel into a fun and funky alternative fall wreath! |

Last summer I repurposed an old work table and repurposed door to a potting bench and hung and chippy old door behind it, but the weather has taken a toll on the door.

I decided to take the door apart before all the chips are completely gone and have some fun using the door panels for other projects.

If you recall the vintage ladder I used as a succulent plant stand in my junk garden, well, the plant in the largest funnel grew so big that it toppled out of the funnel.

Next year I’ll replace it with a smaller funnel and a smaller plant.

It dawned on me that I could use that funnel and one of the door panels to make an alternative fall wreath, and I love alternative wreathes made out of salvaged junk!

The only thing I needed to do was put a screw into the panel and put a small jar with water inside the funnel.

Our burning bush has had such a brilliant display this year, so I just cut a few clippings and put them into the jar of water.

Presto!  A fall door wreath!

I can easily switch out the burning bush clippings for fresh flowers and use it any time of the year.

I’m using it indoors since our weather turned cold quite suddenly, but I’m already looking forward to putting other flowers in it once fall is over!

  1. Hi Angie! I love your creative wreath! You are right…that could be used almost any time of year by just changing out the flowers/greenery in the funnel. I just got back from the Country Living Fair near Atlanta. The one salvage thing I got was a funnel. Now I know something that I can use it for.

  2. I love this idea, Angie! It will be great all year round!

    Angie this is such a cute idea and i have some old funnels just waiting for me, so glad you shared this.

  4. I like it! I wish I had a rustic funnel. I’ve never tho’t of looking for one before. Hmmn, I’ll have to put that on my list of things to search for when I’m thrifting or yard sale shopping. I still don’t have anything on my front door. I’ve been looking for a cheap faux fall wreath or a grapevine wreath that I can decorate but haven’t found anything quite to my liking or in my price range yet. Maybe I’ll just get some Indian corn.

    Thanks for the funnel idea!

  5. You did a fabulous job on it just love it. Would you kindly tell me which makes decorating a breath of fresh air?
