Hootie-Hoo! {Fun Fall Wreath}

Happy first official day of Fall! We even got a teeny cool front in honor of the day! It’s glorious! :)

I’m slowly, but surely getting my Fall decor up. I’m normally done by now, but things have been crazier and busier than usual here. I did have time to make a new wreath. Getting my craft on is a bit therapeutic for me. It was nice to check out for a bit and do something just for fun!

I decided to try the pool noodle wreath form that I have seen a few places. My local dollar store still had them in stock. All I had to do to create the wreath form was stick both ends together with a good amount of duct tape.

I found this really cute black and white upholstery trim at Hob Lob and decided to use that to wrap the wreath form. I bought the remainder of the spool which was about 12 1/2 yards and used almost all of it.

I used a few straight pins to secure the end of the trim to the wreath. Then I just wrapped it tightly around the form until I completed the circle. I used straight pins again to secure the other end to the back of the wreath.

Then it was time to decorate the wreath! I cut a bunch of leaf shapes out of different colored sheets of felt. I layered them onto one side of the wreath and attached them with hot glue.

The final step was to find something cute to sit at the bottom of the leaves. I think this adorable wooden owl does the trick! This little cutie came from Michael’s and he’s hanging on by the world’s largest glob of hot glue.
