Not only is this Fall Leaf Wreath super easy to make, it’s also super cheap and your kids will LOVE helping you out with it (without driving you crazy in the process, trust me this is important)! You can find the main supplies in your backyard (leaves), and most of the other items are probably laying around your home in a spare parts drawer.
So grab your crafting buddy and make this Fall Leaf Wreath while the trees are in full colors!
- Glue (Hot Melt Glue Gun or Glue Stick)
- Piece of Cardboard Cut in a Circle Shape
- Piece of String OR Wire (to hang your wreath)
- Cut your piece of string (or wire) to about 12 inches, but you can adjust it shorter or longer depending on where you intend to hang your wreath. So start off by cutting it to length and then set aside.
- Cut your piece of cardboard in to a circle and then cut out another circle inside to form the shape of a wreath. We cut a slit in to the middle of the cardboard from the outside so we could cut the inside out easier. It’s really not very important how Perfect your circle is because it will soon be covered with leaves, so don’t stress if it’s got some flaws!
- Head in to the back yard (or where you fill be finding your leaves) and gather as many whole colorful leaves as you can find!
If you use a Glue Stick you will be covering the entire piece of cardboard with glue, if you use a Hot Melt Glue Gun you will be gluing each leaf on individually. (We used a Hot Melt Glue Gun!)
5. Hang your wreath and enjoy it!
