Autumn night in acrylics – Street lamp and maple tree

Sometimes we don’t realize how inspiring a simple walk in the evening can be. Autumn shows its beauty even when the sun is gone, at the light of a street lamp.

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me,  fluttering from the autumn tree.” ― Emily Brontë

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!
