Fall is amazing! I am trying to become more creative so decided to attempt making my first wreath.
I saw this posted and thought, wow this looks great! This was my inspiration but I wanted to make apples too and try and see if they would work on a wreath.
- Glue gun & glue sticks
- Puzzle pieces
- Red & orange paint
- Ribbon for stems & to hang
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 embelish, 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 premade wreath or make something more to your tastes
