How To: Create an Eco-Friendly Wreath for Fall

It might be a little early, but I’m ready to decorate for fall. To officially kick off this particular season of crafting, I created a beautiful eco-friendly wreath!

What You Will Need:

1. An old wreath to redo. I found two old (and kind of hideous) wreaths at the thrift store.

2. Sheet music or other recycled paper

3. Tape

4. Scissors

5. Two buttons

6. Hot glue/hot glue gun

7. A ruler

8. A permanent marker

9. Twine. If you can, use hemp twine.

How To Do It:

1. Remove all of the lovely items on your old wreath. Mine had a lot of glue left on the front, so I simply flipped the wreath over to the back. It was the perfect base for my new wreath.

2. Make the paper flowers by following the instructions on this¬†Recycled Paper Mother’s Day Brooch tutorial— just don’t add a brooch pin to the back of the flower.

3. Then, hot glue the flowers to your wreath.

4. To create the mini pennant banner, cut a piece of twine the length of your wreath.

5. Use your ruler and draw 4 triangles that will fit across the twine. The triangles should look something like this:

(Make sure you leave an extra piece at the top to attach it to the twine.)

6. With a permanent marker, write each letter of “fall” on the triangles.

7. Using your hot glue gun, attach the triangles to the twine but gluing them like so:

8. Tie or hot glue the banner to your wreath.

Now you have a beautiful and eco-friendly wreath for your home! This could also be personalized– instead of “fall,” write “welcome,” or your family’s last name. There are so many possibilities!
