Make a Display of Falling Leaves

Make a Display of Falling Leaves Wreath

This isn’t a traditional wreath, my Falling Leaves Wreath is more of a horizontal wreath.  I have been enjoying my Dollar Tree outdoor chandelier I made earlier this summer and decided it was time for a replacement.  We don’t get pretty fall leaves in Florida, but I love them, so I decided I would make my own falling autumn leaves.  

I picked up three inexpensive packages of artificial fall leaves, a styrofoam wreath and one fall leaf garland.  I wrapped my styrofoam wreath with burlap to cover it, securing it with floral pins.

When I had my wreath completely covered with the burlap, I began pinning the leafy garland to the wreath.

I secured it with the same pins I used to secure the burlap to the styrofoam wreath.

This is how my wreath looks at this point with the garland attached completely.

I used four pieces of hemp rope tied around the wreath and tied together about two and a half feet above my wreath.  The knot will be where I will hang the wreath from a hook on my porch.

My packages of loose fall leaves were sorted and glued onto some of my hemp strings.  I glued them with a tiny dab of hot glue with the string between two of the leaves.

With smaller leaves, I glued a couple of them together on one side of the string and one larger leaf on the other side.  When I had several of these strings complete, I tied them on my wreath to hang beneath it.

I added three strings of tiny battery operated lights that come on automatically every evening and turn off after 5 hours.  I have my own falling leaves on my back porch despite the fact that we don’t have colorful fall leaves here in central Florida.
