Last year I saw a picture of an oak leaf wreath in Country Living magazine. I decided to try it myself. I found it was so easy and beautiful, that I think I will make it a fall tradition. You should definitely try this one!
|Here is my bag of leaves. Give yourself a few inches of stem to work with, and try to gather leaves of varying sizes and colors for interest.|
|I like grapevine wreath bases, because it is easy to push the stems through the spaces.|
|You could wire each leaf on, but I found that method to be very time consuming. I just use a hot glue gun so the leaves don't dislodge.|
|Each wreath only took me about 15-20 minutes. Add some ribbon if you like and enjoy as long as you want. The leaves dry beautifully!|
|One of these would make a perfect|
Thanksgiving hostess gift!
