Fall is knocking at my door, and I am very happily answering. The summer weather has been very warm on the west coast, and this means that I won’t be sad when sweater weather hits. I am actually looking forward to rain!
I know. I’m crazy. But fall is just the best season. Warm teas, falling leaves, pumpkins and soup…. I’m ready.
This simple fall DIY felt leaf wreath (say that three times fast) takes no time at all, and makes use of some fabulous leaf die-cut shapes!
Supplies needed to make your own fall DIY leaf wreath:
- 12″ Styrofoam Wreath Form
- 6″ Wide Burlap Ribbon
- Leaf Shape Steel Die Cuts
- Sizzix or Cuttlebug Machine
- Felt in the Colours of your Choice
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- White Ribbon
- Wreath Stand (optional)
I started by wrapping the wreath with the wide burlap ribbon and securing the ends with a few dabs of hot glue. Styrofoam will melt if it gets too hot – so be strategic with your hot glue usage!
I laid out the pattern that I thought would work on the fall DIY wreath, and then got to hot-gluing again. I opted to have only a few orange leaves compared to their white counterparts. I liked the contrast of the white against the burlap.
I love how this fall DIY wreath looks on the wreath stand. I will admit – I’m a tiny bit obsessed with wreath stands and plan to get at least two more before fall is fully here. I want to do a little vignette on my front porch!
But until I’m ready to deck the porch with leaves and gourds, this little wreath is going to cheer up the dining room with its simple but happy design.
Now tell me, would you do this wreath in completely un-Autumn shades? Blues or pinks perhaps? I’m debating it!
