I will definitely be the first to admit that I’m no DIY’er. This DIY Fall wreath, however, is simple enough for even the most amateur crafter. Of course, the homeschooler in me tries to get the kids involved as much as possible. I also wanted to make this a cheap project. Unfortunately, I had to use my 50% coupon on something else otherwise this would have come in even cheaper. In total, this cost me about $30.
DIY FALL/THANKSGIVING WREATH
The goods, aka, the materials:
1 blank wreath
1 package of wooden leaves (you can use any other material that is easy to write on)
1 Always Be Thankful tag (or any tag you choose)
1 Small faux boutique (any color palette)
1 Silver Sharpie (or color of choice)
Roll of burlap
Wire cutters or very sharp scissors to cut the stems
WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?
This is where the fun part came in. I always love asking my kids this each year. It can take a little prodding but some great conversations can come out of it. It is also very humbling to hear how simple their answers are.
Maggie just ate noodles and apples as we crafted! We wrote, “food” in her honor. A girl after my own heart!
My favorite ones this year were, nature, creatures, and cousins.
After you spend some time writing on the leaves it’s time to assemble. What I did first was stuff the boutique in the wreath where I wanted it and wrapped and glued the burlap in place. Then I arranged the leaves to where I thought I wanted them and took a picture for reference.
I glued the tag on next and then started on the leaves. Not the most fun part but it didn’t take long. I had to use wire cutters to snip the stems off of the flowers. Then, VOLÁ.
This was the first wreath I have ever made! Don’t mind me while I pat myself on the back over here. When I was planning out school year making seasonal wreath’s was something that I really wanted to do. We don’t change over decor in our home and I thought this would just make it a little more festive as we change seasons.
This easy DIY Fall wreath will be a great addition to your home!
I would love to know in the comments what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend!
