Lately my cousin and I have been crafting on Friday nights and this fall wreath was our project last week. I loved it! Plus it was simple enough that I wanted to share how we made them so you can make one for your home, or as a gift.
For the wreath you will need a pre-made grapevine wreath (14" size), decorative leaves, a block letter, ribbon, paint for your letter, and a hot glue gun. I picked up all my materials at Michael's.
Step 1: Paint your letter. I choose a gold color and painted just the top surface of the block. The glitter is optional but I felt it added an extra pop that complimented the ribbon. Set aside and let it dry.
Step 2: Using a small amount of hot glue, begin attaching the leaves to the wreath. Be sure to mix different colors and sizes to give your wreath a natural look. Don't worry about being perfect!
Step 3: Using different sizes of cut ribbon, fold them in half and intermix them with the leaves, attaching with the hot glue. The green is a nice compliment to the yellow/red/orange color of the leaves. Spread the ribbon throughout the leaves but again, don't worry about making a pattern or being to precise. Continue gluing on leaves and ribbon until approximately 1/3 of the wreath is covered.
Step 4: Add the block letter using hot glue to the wreath. I positioned mine on the corner so that it wasn't perfectly centered. Feel free to place your letter where ever looks best to you! Give your wreath some time to set before hanging. Lastly, hang your wreath proudly among your other fall decorations!
