Decorating for fall is so much fun! Don’t you agree? Last week I shared how we spruced up our back door with pumpkins and gourds as well as our autumn covered porch. This week I am sharing how to make a fall leaf wreath.
This section of our porch is right near our back door so the bench provides a perfect spot for the kids to sit and remove their shoes before coming inside.
First I started with a grapevine wreath, compliments of Wayfair. Grapevine wreaths provide a fantastic surface when creating your own fall wreath.
I then used a variety of faux leaves that I had left over from last fall. You can buy them at any local craft store. These happened to be wired together as a swag so I simply cut the leaves off with wire cutters and hot glued them around the wreath.
I worked my away around the wreath being sure to overlap the leaves.
Once I was finished with the leaves, I gathered a group of dried flowers and decorative pinecones that I had purchased last fall from Home Goods. They usually come in a bag and are called vase fillers. They are inexpensive and perfect for wreaths!
I tucked the decorative elements in between the leaves and hot glued them in place.
I also cut a few pieces of dried ornamental grass that we had in our garden.
This wreath took me literally 15 minutes to make and it looks great inside or outside. Our porch is covered so for now, it’s outside over the bench.
Learning how to make a fall leaf wreath is super easy and quick. I made this wreath as part of the DIY Wreath Challenge over at Wayfair. They are featuring DIY wreaths from around the blogosphere starting today on their website. You can find my wreath as well as other wreaths created by other talented bloggers over at Wayfair. Stop by and tell them I sent you :). Happy wreath making!
