School is starting in a few weeks, summer will soon be ending and fall is right around the corner. This means cool nights, layered clothes, football and fall décor. I absolutely love fall and fall décor. Now, I don’t normally decorate for a specific holiday, however I do love to decorate for the seasons. Harvest decorating is a big one at the Geib household and I can’t resist a good fall wreath. This fall wreath is super duper easy to make and when I say anyone can make this wreath, I mean it. Not even kidding here.
When I make a wreath, I don’t normally have a clue as to what I want my wreath to look like. I either browse my craft area in the basement or go to the craft store and see what jumps out at me. In this case my own stock was lacking, so I went shopping.
As fun as it is to go shopping for a craft project it can sometimes be slightly overwhelming. I mean they really do have everything you could possibly want and it makes my head spin sometimes. The aisles are filled to the gills with every kind of fall flower you can think up and I just didn’t feel like gluing and cutting this year. So for this wreath I decided, simplicity = happy girl.
I picked out 2 of those long strips of leaves that are already all attached and ready to go. I picked one that had the colors of fall leaves and then I picked one that looks like they are magnolia leaves. They were both on sale and I had a coupon so they were super cheap 🙂
Now you might be thinking this isn’t very creative or whatever, but this is a great way to make your own wreath without spending a ton of money on a pre bought one or having the hassle of picking out a ton of different flowers and gluing them or using wire to attach them to a wreath. I get asked all the time where I bought this wreath and to me that is the biggest compliment.
So, in order to make this you will need at least 2 strings of leaves or flowers (like shown in the picture above.) You will also need some florists tape or wire and a wire wreath.( I used florists tape.) I started by laying out the green magnolia line on the wreath and attached that at random places so that it was nice and firm.
Then I laid the fall colored leaf line over top of that and arranged them the way I like it and then taped that onto the wire wreath as well. That’s it kids! It was that simple. It looks pretty darn cute if I say so myself.
Looks great from the street too!!! Enjoy 🙂
