This is all you’ll need:
- Any size wreath
- 1-2 packages of single leaves – autumn colored (I found these at the dollar store)
- 1 roll of wide ribbon – wired edged (I found this at the dollar store too)
- 1 wooden wall hanging – autumn themed (optional….and I forgot to put it in the picture)
- floral wire – thin
Keep adding leaves until you reach the end of your wire. Test out the length of your string of leaves by wrapping it around your wreath. If you need more, twist another few feet of wire to the end of your string of leaves and continue adding more leaves. Once you have enough wrapped around your wreath, twist the two wire ends of your string of leaves together.
Now, onto the bow.
You may have your own technique…..but here’s what I did. I just began with one end of the ribbon and made a small loop for the center and then made two bigger loops on either side of the center one. (just keep holding the ribbon in place with one hand and make the loops with the other hand.)
Then, pinch the center together and wrap some wire through the center loop and then down and around to the bottom. Twist together tightly. Then add a long piece for the tails. Secure that with more wire.
Then attach the bow to the wreath, at like 2 0’clock……if the wreath was a clock.
