Little Fall Wreath

Hope you had an excellent Halloween weekend.  If you're like me and did any type of shopping this weekend you saw...Christmas.  Don't get me wrong- I can't wait to start the holiday season but for me the next couple of weeks are a weird limbo stage.  Not quite time to start decorations, but still there is a yearning.  To quell my excitement, and to continue to honor fall, I made this little leaf wreath out of felt.  It's nice and neutral so it doesn't lean too heavily in either the Christmas direction, or the fall direction.  A happy medium.
You Will Need:
-Three colors of crafting felt
-1 to 3 pieces of floral wire 
-Thin ribbon
-Scissors
-Glue (hot glue works best)
Cut varying sizes and colors of leaves from your felt. I also cut some little round berry shapes out of my green felt.

Using a twisting motion, make a small circle using your floral wire, mine was about 8-10" across.  Tuck in any sharp end or dot with glue.  Begin to glue your leaves and berries along the wire shape until you've gone all the way around.
Tie a bow with your ribbon and glue to the top/front of your wreath.  Cut an extra loop of ribbon and attach to the back of the wreath for hanging.  Your wreath is now complete!
I'm happy with my "not quite the Christmas season yet" wreath.  It feels a little festive without jumping the gun. How are you enjoying the last bits of fall before the seasons turn?

  1. This would be a nice project for children at Thanksgiving. Keep those little hands busy while the turkey is cooking. Or how about miniature ones for place markers? Kiddos could make those, too!
