This post is sponsored by Bindle & Brass Trading Company, but all opinions are my own. I’ve got a fun fall craft project tutorial to share with you today, a Fall Apple Leaf Wreath. A straw wreath base with layers of fall leaves, wheat, and red and green apples.
I just loved how this wreath turned out! I love the layers and the “bountiful” feel it has. So let me show you how to make your own.
- straw wreath
- dried pencil cattails
- dried natural wheat bundle
- oak leaves
- apples on a stem
- fall wired ribbon
- floral wire
Making your Fall Apple Leaf Wreath
I started with a straw wreath form for the base. I wanted something natural that would go with all the fall colors, but not too dark in color. This was perfect.
For the bottom layer, I started with the pencil cattails and wheat. I wanted them to fan out on the upper left side of the wreath.
One I had the cattail and wheat in place, I used floral wire to hold them in place to the wreath.
Then with the wire cutters, I trimmed the base of the cattails and wheat so they weren’t hanging over the wreath.
Next, it was time to start layering the fall oak leaves. I started at the top with a couple small bunches and then attached them to the wreath with floral wire.
Then I worked my way down the left side of the wreath, attaching the clusters with wire. Add until you get the desired look.
Tie the fall wire ribbon to the end of the bottom left area, where ever you like the look. I tied a double bow ribbon. With a long ribbon tie one bow, then tie a second bow. Use the wire in the ribbon and fluff the bow to get the desired look you want.
The final step is adding the apples. I trimmed down the stems to about 4-5 inches long. Then you press them into the places you want. I pushed the ends, at an angle, into the wreath to secure them. If they feel loose, secure them with floral wire.
Then all that’s left is to hang that beautiful wreath you created!
