Nothing says 'autumn' like crunching through fallen leaves with your little ones, and we can’t help but smile every time we pass a door bedecked with a pretty seasonal wreath. The only problem is, those wreaths are so expensive to buy!
If you have a love of arts and crafts however, you’re in luck – because the following is super-easy to make and will look amazing on your front door.
What you will need:
- A wreath form (the bare skeleton of the wreath, available to buy in your local supermarket, florist’s, or arts and crafts shop)
- Differently-coloured leaf vines (again, available in any of the above)
- Glue or twine (optional)
- Fairy lights (optional)
- Fall decorations (e.g.: pumpkins, pine cones, berries, acorns, etc.)
What to do:
- Take your first leaf vine and wrap it around the wreath form, leaving a gap in between each section of leaves.
- If your vine has a wire base, you can just wrap it around a strand of the wreath to secure. Alternatively, secure it with some glue or twine.
- Next, take a different shade of leaf vine and thread it onto the wreath form, filling in the spaces between the first round of leaves.
- You can finish off by adding another round of leaves and/ or battery-operated fairy lights and other fall-themed decorations.
- To hang, thread a piece of twine through a section at the top of the wreath, and attach to your door via a hook.
