Homemade Fall Wreath

It’s that beautiful time of the year, once again! Mother Nature is changing into her colorful clothes!

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. – Albert Camus

Because autumn always inspires me, I wanted to celebrate it in a special way, and what better way than by decorating the house with a gorgeous wreath made out of leaves. Amazing what a jog through the forest can do to my creativity level 🙂

What you will need:

  • Flexible twigs
  • Short straight sticks
  • Leaves both on twigs and individual
  • Acorns
  • Pine cones
  • Thin string – I used a black string
  • Short fabric strip, for a ribbon; / a ribbon.

Instructions – Step by step:

Fall Wreath step by step

  1. I started by using the two flexible twigs to create a circle, as a base for the wreath.
  2. Next, I started adding the green leaves to the circle, using string where needed, in order to fix them in place.
  3. The red leaves were added next, giving the wreath some color.
  4. I used string to fix the cones and the acorns to the circle. Using acorns which still have a bit of tail left, makes the job go much smoother.
  5. The short straight sticks went all around the circle, framing the leaves.
  6. And last but not least, I used the fabric strip to make a ribbon for the wreath. You can go for whatever color you like, I used what I had around the house.
  7. Last step is to find a door, fix the wreath, step back and admire it 🙂 Job well done!

Autumn Wreath

In case you decide to make your own, please consider using only twigs, leaves, acorns and cones which you already find on the ground. I believe it’s much better to recycle what the trees don’t need anymore, rather than to hurt the plants for our entertainment.

I hope you enjoyed it, and you found the instructions useful. Happy Fall!

  1. I quite like autumn too (minus the spiders). I love the colours, the atmosphere, the mild temperatures and the mushrooms growing everywhere 🙂 A lot of people feel depressed by this season.

    How long the leaves will look good ? It’s quite pretty!

    • I also love autumn. I love the colors of nature, but I’m less of a fan of rain. However, in NL it rains all the time, so not much different from the other seasons haha.
      Actually I still have the leaves roses I made last autumn, and they still look good 🙂 I think they will last until net season, or at least until xmas 😀

  2. Nature indeed always nurtures our nature of creativity. The season has its own reason to make our emotions in motion and sense in proper notion. We all have been applying our creative thoughts in general on flowers but you have taken a notch ahead by putting the leaves in a colourful pattern, here these leaves don’t fall they just fly, creativity at its awesome best.

    You always have your creative hat on your head and when get the brush and pencil in hand, the sketch and the color flows and the flowers get blossomed.
    So beautifully narrated the process, it gets imprinted for all season, only one get the occasion and mood in place to play with such beautiful creative engagement with nature…

    Hope Lucy are back and things are in place.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Take Care!!!

      • Nurturing both the nature and our nature can makes us a better person, we need to keep doing it regularly…it cannot once a while and there is big gap in our source of inspiration.
