Fall is absolutely, without a doubt, my favorite season. On September 1st, I pulled out all of my fall decorations and spent the morning transforming my home. (That was also the day my son started school, and I had to keep busy to keep from crying the entire day!) Today the weather has cooled enough to make it feel like fall--What perfect timing, as I made a new fall wreath for our front door last night!
Styrofoam wreath form (mine was 10")
Fall Ribbon--Enough to wrap the entire wreath and cover the door hanger
1 Strand/Garland of fall leaves (On sale now at JoAnn's!)
Floral Pins (Sewing pins would work fine, too.)
Wrap the fall-themed ribbon around the entire wreath, covering it completely. I used floral pins to secure the ribbon, as I like to be able to change my wreaths around, but you could use a glue gun, instead.
Create a loop at the top of your wreath with one end of your leaf garland. Secure it with a pin.
Continuing from where you started the garland with the loop, wrap the garland in and out of the wreath, until you've used the entire length. (Sorry if this isn't too clear; just wrap it around, the same way you did the ribbon.) Secure the end with another pin.
You can see the pin that I used to secure the end of the ribbon in the first step. Don't worry about those pins because you can arrange the leaves to cover anything that shows.
