Rustic Fall Wreath You Can Make In 20 Minutes
Today’s rustic fall wreath is perfect for this cozy time of year. You can literally make this DIY wreath in about 20 minutes because it’s just that simple.
STEP 1. CUT LEATHER DOWN TO SIZE.
Cut the leather down to about 3 inches tall by 18 wide, which should fit perfectly on a 14 inch embroidery hoop. You will also need two strips of leather about a half inch wide.
STEP 2. WRITE YOUR SAYING ON LEATHER.
Use a pencil to trace out you letters first to make sure they fit and then draw over them with paint pen, which writes perfectly on the leather.
STEP 3. ADD LEATHER TO HOOP.
To add the leather to the embroidery hoop, just loosen the hoop and slide the leather in between the two wooden rings.
STEP 4. ADD FAUX PICKS OF FALL FLOWERS AND LEAVES.
First, bunch your flowers and leaves together and wrap the bottom of the bunch with floral wire. Then, loosen up the embroidery hoop and feed a piece of floral wire through the two wooden hoops to secure the bunch to the hoop.
STEP 5. COVER FLORAL WIRE WITH LEATHER.
To cover up the floral wire that is holding the fall flowers and leaves in place, I used another strip of leather and just wrapped it around the wreath. Super simple, right?
STEP 6. TIE ON HANGER.
Since the wreath is asymmetrical, if you just loop it onto a wreath hanger, it will typically hang a little crooked, due to the extra weight on one side. To prevent this, I took another strip of leather and tied it around the top of the wreath and then attached that to the wreath hanger and tied a little bow.
I love how simple this rustic fall wreath was to put together…. I bet it only took me 20 minutes or so. Not only is the fall wreath unique, but it adds a little something extra to our home as we start to welcome Fall!
