For a fabric wreath you will need several pieces of fabric, preferably in orange and yellow, but you can make any other combinations you like. You will also need a wire hanger and a ribbon, or some other similar thing. First you have to create a circle by twisting the wired hanger. After that you take each piece of fabric and tie a knot on the circle. When you are done, all that is left for you to do is tie the ribbon at a certain part of the wreath and hang it.
This kind of wreath is also very easy to make and it doesn’t require anything special. A couple of leaves in different colors, a little piece of cardboard and some glue will be enough. First, you have to cut out a round shape from the cardboard, which will serve as a base for your wreath. Then using the glue, start placing leaves on the shape, until it is completely covered. You can either hang your new leafy wreath on the wall or place it somewhere along with your other autumn decorations.
The simplest wreath you can create is by using a couple of long branches. Collect them from the parks while you are out on a fall walk, along with several leaves in different colors, which you can either include in the same wreath or save for an additional fall decoration. The other things you will need include a little piece of fabric of your choosing, some glue and thread. First you have to put all branches together and bend them carefully until they attain a round shape. Then tie them in several spots with the thread, as you make sure you use as much as needed to keep the wreath stable. You can cut different shapes from the fabric, glue them together in a separate thread and attach them to the branches.
With our useful tips you will be able to transform your home and prepare it for the fall. As you can see the DIY projects don’t take more than an hour while the results are really great.
