Leaf Wreath – ARTBAR

I took a stroll in our nearby park this 7 days on the most excellent fall working day. Temps were lower 60’s, sky was bright blue, there was a slight breeze and just the smell of autumn in the air. The trees have been turning for two weeks now but on this working day, with the breeze, leaves have been fluttering to the ground all all over me.

I brought a bag with me to obtain leaves, as one does on fantastic slide times, and I gathered so several that it felt like it weighed a couple of lbs .. I right away believed of the best idea for my large bag of leaves…. a leaf wreath built with a wire hanger!

Going on a nature walk to collect leaves for a wreath.

I initially noticed this leaf wreath idea several years back on my buddy Gina’s site, Willowday. I understood it demanded a ton of leaves considering the fact that they are stacked, and I’m commonly someone who only collects what I can keep, so I haven’t had a opportunity to convey property a major leaf haul until eventually now!

Collecting a rainbow of leaves from the ground

How to make a leaf wreath with a wire hanger:

1. Gather your leaves and organize them by shade. I must have gathered a handful of hundred leaves at minimum, but real truth be informed I *nonetheless* didn’t have more than enough. I experienced to slash my hanger a small shorter. So err on the facet of far too significantly!

2. Use needle nose pliers to untwist the leading of the wire hanger. Use your have fingers to bend out the kinks, then to bend it into a circle. To reduce the wire hanger (which you will in all probability have to do except you bought 1000’s of leaves!), just bend back again and forth a handful of situations in 1 place and it will split. You can do this by hand or with the pliers. (You can also use floral wire, like this vine-coated style, rather of a hanger.)

6. When you are carried out threading, use the pliers to bend the end into a very little loop, then hook it at the major to secure the ring.

This wreath will begin to dry up really swiftly and the shades will fade. If you want the color to previous, attempt dipping the leaves in beeswax very first!
