Easy fall decorations for home – autumn wreath with fruit pits
To create these easy fall decorations for home, use the following materials:
– Pits of plums, peaches and apricots and cedar cones
– Styrofoam ring
– Brown acrylic paint
– Paint brush

After the paint has dried, use a hot glue gun to attach the plum pits on the styrofoam ring so that its whole surface is covered.
The process requires a bit more patience and precision, but the final result worths the effort. If you have additional fruit pits (eg. peaches), you can add them creating a second layer.
