Mabon Wreath

Fall is amazing!  I am trying to become more creative so decided to attempt making my first wreath.

Mabon Wreath

I love the look of a seasonal wreath on your front door.  It is a great way to prepare for the next season!


Materials Needed:

  • Glue gun & glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard
  • Puzzle pieces
  • Red & orange paint
  • Ribbon for stems & to hang

What to do:

I cut circles out of a cardboard box with an x-acto knife, using cups as template and a large bowl for the wreath.   Then painted half red and the other half orange.

Then I took some puzzle pieces and painted them red and orange.  The first ones were already dry by the time I finished painting so I heated up the glue gun then started glueing puzzle pieces on.   How many pieces you will need is a personal decision, I started painting some red ones but they were too small and I hit up the dollar store again to get some bigger pieces.  I found 5-6 big pieces worked.  I tried glueing the small pieces I had done previously on to embellish, but found I preferred without so didn’t do it with the pumpkin ones.

I took a small puzzle piece and a brown marker and painted 6 stalks.  Then I cut up some ribbons and glued a stem and 1-2 ribbons on each pumpkin/apple.



I glued them alternating on the wreath, then I glued some brown ribbon on the back to hang it.


I was really happy with the results.  My first real attempt at something crafty/decorating related.

What do you guys think?  Do you prefer to just buy a pre-made wreath or make something more to your tastes
