Is Fall your favourite season? It’s definitely mine with the cooler sweater weather, falling asleep to the rain, having candles and incense burning all afternoon and drinking far too much tea all day long.
Maybe it’s because I’m a Libra, – Hello to my fellow Birthday babes; or maybe it’s just because I don’t like being overly hot in the summer. Either way, my favourite season is here and I made a Fall Wreath to celebrate!
I always love having a seasonal wreath in the house to always make the place a little brighter and inviting. So this wreath was born.
I headed out to Michaels with a coupon and a basic idea in my head of what I wanted to make, but really nothing more than that. I got to the check out and only spent $22 to make this wreath. (which is pretty good if you ask me) and could be done even cheaper if you went to your local Dollar Store.
These are what I came home with:
A flower, a little pumpkin, a little sign, some felt and the twig wreath.
After I laid everything out, I started to warm up my hot glue gun, and cut my felt into some strips to make little bows. I removed the stem from the flower and took all the greenery off the pumpkin.
Once I had all my supplies ready, I had to decide on my layout before I glued pieces where I didn’t want them.
I wanted to put the sign near the top and then have the flower and pumpkin together as a colour filled focal point.
Isn’t this just the cutest little pumpkin you’ve ever seen?! I also love that the flower is so big and bright too.
Next up I tied the felt strips into knots to make a bow style in alternating colours.
Once I was happy with the bows and everything else, I glued on the pumpkin, flower and sign and voila, all ready!
Supplies you’ll need:
Wreath Ring (any style you like)
Felt, Ribbon or Burlap
Mini Sign or Lettering
Fake Pumpkin, Flower, Leaves, etc
1. Gather everything you need and warm up your glue gun.
2. Cut the felt, ribbon, etc into the desired length (I did my felt in 2” x 6” strips). Remove the stems and greenery from your flowers, pumpkins, etc and set aside.
3. Decide on the layout for where you want your pieces to sit. Sometimes its nice to have the focal point near the bottom side rather than centred in the middle of the bottom.
4. Tie your ribbons either into bows and then glue them onto the wreath or you can do what I did and just tie them onto the wreath in whatever alternating colour pattern you choose.
5. Finally glue on all your pieces that need to be glued and you’re ready to hang your wreath on your door or even your wall.
