This DIY Fall Leaf Wreath takes only 5 minutes to make and costs less than $15! Follow this easy step by step tutorial to make your own beautiful autumn wreath.
So remember that beautiful Wheat Bundle Fall Wreath I shared a while back, along with the story of the moth infestation? Well it turns out that the moths will not be stopped and a new generation of moths hatched out in it and were vying to get in the house every time we went in or out the front door. Despite being in love with it I had to let it go. (Cue musical rendition of the Frozen song....let it go, let it go...)
My front door was sad and shamefully naked but I really didn't have much motivation to make anything elaborate, thus-you have today's 5 minute Autumn Leaf Wreath. This is a no-fail, easy-peasy DIY wreath that adds a pretty punch of autumn color to your decor!
Why I love this DIY
This is probably one of my favorite fall decor DIYs I've shared on the blog. Why?
- it takes just 5 minutes to make
- you can get the supplies for $10-$15
- it is easy enough for kids to do
- you can remove the leaves from the wreath form to store after fall and reuse the wreath form
- 4 six foot faux leaf garland
- 14" wire wreath form
Add color variation for dimension. I picked four strands of the garland in slightly different tones (three reddish and one accent in gold) so it would add some depth to my wreath.
Save money on supplies. If you are lucky you can find nice leaf garlands at the Dollar Tree or other dollar store. They are also very affordable to pick up when you have craft store coupons-all 4 of mine were about $10 with a coupon!
Step by Step Tutorial
Star wrapping the garland (in the main color) around the wire form.
When you come to the end of the garland attach the round end to the next garland by sliding one loop through the other and continue to wrap.
Continue until all of your main color garland is on the wreath. Next, loosely wind the accent color garland around the entire leaf wreath to add a highlight. Secure the accent garland to itself to hold it in place.
This autumn leaf wreath is so fast and easy!
