Craft: Simple & Sweet Fall Wreath

Okay, so I already had 2 fall wreaths, but I wanted one of my own handmade ones. So before we get started let's round up what we need,
-Leaves [preferably glitter leaves]
-Glue Gun
-Wire Cutter
-Grapevine Wreath
-Pretty Ribbon

I got 5 of these pretty glitter leaves from the Dollar Tree. You can't see the glitter right now, but they're gorgeous. I only used 3 on this wreath. 

My trusty glue gun and some of the leaves that I had cut off. You want to cut all of the leaves off of the stem with your wire cutter. Try to get it as close to the leaf as possible.

You'll end up with a big pile of leaves. Then you just glue them to your wreath however you please. I just put them were they fit, and filled in holes. 

And here is the finished product. The last thing I did was add a pretty leave ribbon with hot glue, and added some string to hang. Isn't she pretty? I love it! We don't have a lot of autumn feelings in Texas, so it's a nice reminder of my childhood in Indiana.

What do you think? Pretty simple right? But it's also beautiful as well!

  1. A wire cutter! I must get one of those. I tried to cute some flowers once for a headband and I nearly broke a pair of scissors. Thank you! What a pretty fall wreath to remind you of home. I am a new Twitter follower from Too Cute Tuesday. Vicky from www.messforless.net
