~how to make a fall wreath with dried leaves~

My parents have these giant maple trees that line their driveway.
I remember when my dad planted them when I was little.


Every year my mom waits till the leaves drop, and then gathers a bunch to dry inside.



She has been making these wreaths for years, so this year we had a little crafting day and I made one of my own.
If you have a tree or access to one with pretty leaves like these, here is how you can make one too.

Bring in the leaves and lay them out in a single layer on a towel to dry.


Add twine in a cross pattern around the diameter of the wreath form.


Once the leaves are dry, gather them up in a bucket.


Then you can start adding them to your wreath form one by one.
The longer the stems the better. You'll want to start by tucking the stems into the twine. If you have a really long stem you should be able to thread it through several pieces of the twine.


Add in additional leaves, overlapping the first ones.
Just work on the top of the form, you won't need to do the sides as it fills in itself.




Continue all the way around until it is nice and full.


I recommend these for indoor use, but I have hung one on a covered porch before.
The best part about these wreaths is that they will last year after year after year if stored properly.



Happy wreath making thanks to my mother and mother nature :)

xoxo

LOVE!

I feel like the fall colors are extra vibrant this year in WA. I want to make one before all the leaves blow away! What size wreath did you use?

Thanks!

Kelly

Love this wreath and I'm lucky that I get to see that gorgeous tree in action.

So pretty! What a great idea! Our leaves are always the first on our block to drop and it makes me cringe every year. This makes the whole thing more bearable, thank you!

BREAKUP REHAB ( AWESOME TRUE STORY )

I am Brian Donald and this is my testimony. In September 18th 2017, my girlfriend Maggie called it a quit to our 6 years relationship. it was pathetic, i tried to calm her down but she insisted on breakup because she has met another nice guy in Sydney. the pain was too-much for me to bear, so i went online to look for help then i saw a blog about this powerful spell caster from USA called Dr. Ugo Wonders. i read alot of testimonies about him but i was not too sure if he could help me because i was living in Australia but i decided to give him a try. i emailed him all about my relationship problem and my fear for distance, he assured me not to worry that distance is not a barrier and that the wind blows, so shall my help locate me in 24 hours.i trusted him by his words at once and followed his instructions. Immediately after 24 hours of casting the spell as he instructed me, my girlfriend who left me to be with another man came back home to me and started begging me forgiveness. i was shocked, surprised and amazed and i was like "wow" it worked like a magic. this is the reason i decided to share this my wonderful testimony with the whole world to contact this world classified spell caster called Dr. Ugo for any relationship or breakup issues via his email [email protected] or call his mobile number +13863369876 website: http://generalspelltempleblog.wordpress.com
