Next week is Thanksgiving! Where did November go??? If you still need a quick, last minute decoration for your door, I have one for you today!
This is the final re-invention of my original wreath that I did for St Patrick’s Day. I managed throughout this year to use the same base for Easter, 4th of July and Back to School.
The instructions for making the base wreath can be found here. It is really just strips of burlap tied onto a grapevine wreath! Super simple!
Once your base is made (or in my case, all the old decorations have been ripped off!), gather up some paint chips in fall colors. I found these at Walmart and the surface was big enough to get a few different size leaves out of it. I printed out a sheet of leaf clipart to use as a guide for cutting out all the shapes.
I also used my leaf punch to make a bunch of small leaves. This is the same punch I used to make my Falling Leaves Greeting Card. I had mini leaves left over from that project as well, so I ended up with a great color selection for my wreath.
Since this was the last time I was going to use this base, I went a little crazy hot gluing the leaves on! I wanted the wreath to have the feeling that the leaves blow over it and caught on all the different parts, just like it would naturally if it were outside.
I love how all the colors came together! I also love that the cost of the project was FREE! Paint chips are one of my favorite sources of colored paper and I will be working on more projects using them soon!
Give this project a try if you need an easy, last minute decoration and let me know how it goes!
