Fall is fast approaching and time to start bringing out the Fall decor! Today.com did a recent article on crafty DIY wreaths just in time for fall! Enjoy these beautiful diy ideas below:
Yarn Wrapped Fall Leaf
Here’s What You Need:
*Yarn 1 skein
*Straw Wreath from the craft store
*Fake Birds or Owls
Step 1: Wrap Wreath- Tie the end of your yarn around your wreath snugly. Then start to wrap. Keep an even tension on the yarn as you go. Keep slidding wrapped yarn bunching it up together to keep it nice and thick. You don’t want to be able to see the straw underneath. I did not remove the plastic from the straw wreath. I believe this is probably easier than removing it and having to deal with bits of straw sticking to the yarn as you go. Wrap the yarn snugly all the way around the wreath, then when you are happy with it, cut the yarn off from the skein leaving room for tying. Make a nice tight knot and clip off the excess yarn. Now you have a perfectly wrapped wreath form.
Step 2: Add Felt Flowers and branch- Follow my tutorial for felt flowers here. You can use a plain branch from the yard, or you can glitter your branch by painting a thin layer of modge podge to your branch and pouring glitter over it. Once you have your branch to your liking trim it down to size and hot glue it inside your wreath opening. Next, glue your birds or owls to the branch using a generous amount of glue. Once your birds and branch are set, lay your wreath down on your table and lay out your felt flowers. Once you have a design you like, glue them all down one at a time with hot glue.
Jute Wrapped Monogram Wreath
Here’s what you’ll need to make your monogram wreath:
12″ paper mache letter
1 roll of jute twine
1-1/2 inch ribbon
Start by securing the jute on the backside of the letter with your glue gun. Then, start to vertically wrap it around that section of the N. After wrapping one side, move on to the other side. Next, glue pieces of jute on to the four sides of the angled section.
Then, start wrapping the N horizontally. Once this is done wrapping the letter, make 3 felt rosettes (there are tons of tutorials on how to make these). You can also find one for bows. You can make bows with the rosettes. Us your glue gun to secure the knot of the bow (sticking the glue gun in the knot and shooting in some glue). Use the glue gun to attach the ribbon on the backside of the N or letter of your choice.
