As the days get shorter and the weather grows cooler, we tend to decorate our houses with warm, inviting elements. One way to enjoy the beauty of Autumn is to bring some of the outdoors inside! Marie Nicole created this little wreath with just a few simple items. We love how the color palette is neutral so you can adapt it to almost any style of home decor by adding in the colors you prefer or leave it white like Marie did. Read on to learn how she made it!
- Small Grapevine Wreath
- Battery String Lights
- White Cardstock
- French Script Tissuestock
- Leaf Dies (Cricut Image, Sizzix Die, Punch, or hand cut. Use what you have on hand!)
- Tattered Angels Vintage Brass
- Jute Cord
- Hot Glue Gun
- Canvas Garland
I don’t know about you, but I love using wreaths in my home decor. I have 2 or 3 of them that I switch out for the seasons. Grapevine wreaths are easily changed and I feel they go so well with most any style of decor so they are a great option!
For my little wreath I started by wrapping some patio lights all the way around. I found these lights in the patio section of our department store. They are battery operated which is a wonderful option for me because I have a toddler that loves to play with cords!
After the lights were wrapped all the way around, I used my Sizzix along with Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Leaves die set to cut out a large amount of leaves. I used a mix of white cardstock and Canvas Corp’s French Script Tissuestock. I like how the lights give a soft glow from behind the tissuestock.
After my leaves were cut, I took the white cardstock leaves and lightly misted them with some Vintage Brass Glimmer Mist. This color is a light gold-ish color. It allowed me to add a bit of gold glimmer without adding too much color. I really wanted to keep the whole look of the wreath very light and neutral.
I then took all my leaves and just started to hot glue them along one side of the wreath. You could definitely go all the way around, but I decided to just do half. As a finishing touch, I added a small wooden acorn shape with a twine bow to one of the bottom leaves.
After all the leaves were glued on, I used the Canvas Garland to wrap around the top so I would be able to hang it up. I like how the garland helps hide the battery pack.
I now have this little wreath hanging in my hallway. It fits perfectly on my decorative window that I repurposed! I love the soft glow that it gives to our otherwise dark hallway. I look forward to enjoying it all season long!
