Inside: An easy fall wreath that will add a modern touch of fall to your home decor.
Ok people. I guess this makes it official. My first fall decor post of the season, so that means that fall must be just around the corner, which makes me a bit giddy inside! I can hear my favorite jeans calling my name 🙂
Let me be the first to tell you that you won’t see too much traditional fall decor going on around here. Don’t get me wrong, I love the warmth of the season, but I like to do it in a little different way so that it goes with the style of my home. And because my style tends to be a little bit on the modern side and my home has a lot of blues and grays, I decided to go with bold pops of orange to incorporate fall into my home.
So I hope you’re ready! I’ve got a lot of fall home decor projects on my to do list and an amazing fall home tour on the calendar too!
Let’s start off with this super fun “feather” fall wreath that isn’t really even made of feathers! This will take you less than an hour and add so much color to your space for fall!
Supplies for your “feather” fall wreath:
For each wreath you plan to make you will need:
- a pool noodle or a wreath form (I found pool noodles at my local dollar store)
- duct tape
- fake fall leaves. I got mine at Hobby Lobby at 40% off, but I’ve seen similar ones at other craft stores. Just look for long leaves in a color you love. They will act as your feathers.
- wire cutters
- thin string
Step 1: Make your wreath form out of a pool noodle by holding the 2 ends together and securing with duct tape.
Step 2: Take apart your leaf bundles by cutting them into smaller bunches with your wire cutters. I used 4 bundles per wreath.
Step 3: Start poking your leaf bunches into the pool noodle going in the same direction. In order to get the right placement, lay your leaves on the pool noodle where you want them to end up, then poke the stem in. I had to play around with mine a few times, and fill in the gaps at the end to make it all even.
Step 4: Once you have all of your leaves poked in, you will need to secure the branches onto the pool noodle so that they lay a bit closer to the wreath form. The end result should be airy and borderline “messy” but you don’t want any branches hanging. To start the string, tie it around the pool noodle and one branch.
Then take your string and wrap it around and around, each time securing the branch portion of the leaf bundles, but pulling the leaves free. Tie it off at the end.
Once I was done, I hung mine in my front window, which just solidified the fact that this bright orange is going to be the perfect color to add fall to my home this year!
I had a few small bunches of leaves left over that I filled in the gaps with once they were hung, especially near the top to hide the tape.
I just love how fun these are and they are a perfect modern take on a fall leaf wreath don’t you think?
