How to Make a Real Leaf Wreath
Have you ever had a friend who inspired you to do things you normally wouldn't? For example, today I did a photo shoot with soap, a beaded spider and leaves from the backyard.
Well, Karen, is just that friend! She sent me the most beautiful homemade soap and she made this pretty little spider, all for me... for no reason at all. I think it's because she has a big heart and she's amazing! Here are a few sneak peeks of her latest projects. I'm warning you though, you can't leave her blog without laughing about something..... she is a riot!
Back to the program...
How to Make Real Leaf Wreath
For this project, you will need some leaves. (I used Maple leaves)
A round cardboard doughnut (I must be hungry), and a stapler.
Next, layer the leaves around the cardboard. Don't think too hard, just staple away!
This is fun for the kids too.
After a few minutes, you will have this.
I hot glued extra leaves to cover the staples that were showing.
Wa- La! A very simple real leaf wreath.
I make one every year. Here's the one I made last year.
This is what it looks like when it dries out completely. It takes a while for this to happen.
If you're a little bit ambitious like me, you can spray paint it silver for Christmas, or not...
This really adds a punch of color to the dining room.
I hope you were inspired! Now go make a leaf wreath!
