Crafty Fall Wreath

How was everyone’s weekend? We have had a momentary reprieve from the summer weather around here, just in time for the first days of Fall! The cool air motivated me to get out and prep my front porch for the season. The first step to a festive porch is a festive wreath, of course. I’m changing up my Fall decor a bit from years past, so I decided to make a new wreath. I wanted something easy and simple that would look good with my blue rug.

Crafty Fall Wreath I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do, so I walked around Hobby Lobby and grabbed a couple of things that I thought might make a good wreath. My process is very scientific. ;) I brought home my hoard of items and played around until something clicked. I ended up liking the finished product so much, I even made a second version for inside the house.

supplies for a crafty Fall wreathTo create your own craft wreath, you will need : a grapevine wreath {a wider wreath will be easiest to work with}, scrapbook paper, a couple of sprigs of berries, wired ribbon, a hot glue gun, and some floral wire. I chose scrapbook paper that had a variety of bright, yet muted colors {it’s a thing, I promise} that had interesting patterns and a nice texture. I caught this paper during a 50% off sale. I cut several simple leaf shapes from the paper. To make the leaf appear more 3D, I pinched the ends and secured with a dab of hot glue.

Crafty Fall Wreath I decided on the basic pattern I was going to try to achieve, and then started gluing the leaves onto the wreath.Try to glue the first leaf into a crevice of the wreath form. The other leaves can be secured by glueing to the wreath, but also to neighboring leaves. Be sure to leave space between each group of leaves for the berries and ribbon.
