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


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.
