Fall Foliage Wreath

Long after the last leaves on the lawn have been raked away, this autumnal wreath will hold on to its crispness and color.

Created By: Ellie Miller

Introduction

Cut from kraft paper, the faux foliage is accented with additional leaves cut from shimmering metallic paper. 

The decoration can be hung year after year. When the season changes, store the wreath in a covered cardboard box until next year.

Resources

Metallic paper from Paper Presentation. Wreath form from mainewreathco.com.

 

Materials

  • Kraft paper, from hardware or art-supply stores
  • Similar shimmering metallic paper in Gold (P_L32222) and Antique Gold (P_L32227)
  • Wreath form, 20-inch double-rail wreath ring (DRWR20)
  • Brown satin bow
  • Stapler
  • Scissors, from marthastewartcrafts.com

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut several long, 1 1/2-inch-wide strips of kraft paper. Wrap around a wreath form (ours was 20 inches in diameter) to cover; staple.

  2. Step 2

    Cut several 5-by-10-inch rectangles from kraft paper; fold accordion-style. Cut out multiple leaves.

  3. Step 3

    Cut more 2 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch rectangles from metallic papers; fold on the diagonal, at a slight curve.

  4. Step 4
