Over the weekend this fall wreath was featured on Disney’s Babble (eek, one of my absolute favorites!!), so it couldn’t have been too bad for a first blog post, right?! So without further ado, here’s the original post for my DIY Fall Wreath… enjoy!
I am so excited to share with you how to make this easy DIY fall thanksgiving wreath. I whipped it up yesterday morning in under two hours from start to finish, less time than it took the kids to watch Star Wars!
It is so easy, is made from punched paper, and cost me only $2.50 to make. Let’s get started!
Now your wreath is all full and beautiful, but it looks a little plain, don’t you think? Let’s make a little banner for the bottom.
I just took a strip of patterned paper, folded it, cut the ends, and added scrapbook letters to the top. If you don’t have letters, or don’t want to buy any, you could also use a stamp, or put the patterned paper straight into your printer and print your banner. Be creative!!
My banner needed a little something more to make it stand out, so I took a brown ink pad and rubbed it along the edges to give them a little definition. Then just glue your banner on with your glue gun, and voila, you have a new beautiful fall wreath! Your friends will be so impressed with your amazing crafting ablilities
