DIY Autumn Leaves Wreath



It's time for yet another wreath, because I couldn't very well leave a skull with bugs all over it up in November.

You will need:
  • Raffia wrapped wire
  • Fabric leaves (find these at any craft store)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Wire cutters
This is so so so SO simple!  First, cut three strips of wire slightly longer than the size you want your wreath to be.

Braid these three together.  This will give your wreath stability.  Now, if you're tempted to just buy a foam wreath, don't!  The hot glue gun will melt the Styrofoam, and it will be a big mess.

Connect the ends to form a circle.

Then, just glue your leaves on one at a time.  I think it looks best if you mix up colors and directionality, but go with your gut!

And you're done!  Totally doable :)
