Fall is officially upon us! That means it’s time to break out the pumpkin spice and thick, cozy scarves. Most importantly, it means breaking out the fall decorations! This time of year is my favorite time to work on DIY fall home décor projects. All the reds, oranges, and yellows fill me with so much inspiration that I find it hard to create everything that I want to.
First up on my fall DIY list was a new fall wreath to decorate the door of my apartment. Naturally, I reached for reds, oranges, yellows, and some earthy tones and included plenty of fall leaves.
I got all of my fall leaves for my fall wreath from Dollar Tree. They had bags full of individual leaves and some bouquets with several leaves on a stem. I bought several of each and used my roll of burlap that I got at Wal-Mart for $3. After recycling my wreath form from my summer wreath, I was ready to get started with my new DIY project.
1. Wrap the wreath form in burlap.
2. Begin to lay out individual leaves evenly around the wreath. Spread the colors out and point them both inwards and outwards. Glue them down when you have them where you want them.
3. Cut off stems of leaves.
4. Place the stems around the wreath when you have any gaps. Glue them down.
5. Glue down some more individual leaves over the stems where you don’t want the stem to peak through.
6. Keep going until your DIY fall wreath is as full as you want it!
And there you have it! Here is an easy DIY fall wreath to top off your fall décor.
