Share |

It’s time to bring some autumn decoration to your front door. Fall wreath is an excellent way to welcome the fall and add beauty to your home during the season. Add fall elements such as colorful fall leaves, pinecones, and acorns to your wreath to celebrate the fall. Hang the wreath outdoors to make your home look more festive and ready for the season.

Fall Wreath With Pinecones And Fall Leaves

Materials needed:

  • grapevine wreath
  • hot glue stick
  • hot glue gun
  • pinecones
  • acorns
  • colorful silk fall leaves
  • acorns
  • needle nose pliers
  • wire
  • wire cutters

Place your grapevine wreath on a flat surface. Don’t forget to cover the surface, we don’t want it to get messed up with hot glue. Get the hot glue gun and insert the glue stick into its back. Plug the glue gun into electrical outlet and let it heat for about 10 minutes.

Now it’s time to glue the leaves. We need to apply a pea-sized amount of glue to the back of our fall leaves and press them to the wreath. Glue all colorful leaves in random locations around the wreath. To glue the pinecones and acorns we need to start with small ones, apply a small amount of glue and press them around the wreath between the leaves. For bigger ones we need to apply more glue, insert in any open spaces on the wreath. Cut 12 inches of wire, wrap it around the wreath and twist into a loop. That’s it! The wreath is ready to be hung on your front door or window to welcome the fall 2014 season.

You can also add dried fruit, flowers, herbs, and finish the wreath decorating with beads. It all depends on your imagination. Bring other autumn decoration to your front yard – pumpkins and corn husks will work great.
