Fall Wreath Tutorial

I thought you might enjoy this tutorial. It's very simple and quick to make. I have provided the picture below with a couple of samples of finished wreaths.

wire cutters
You can purchase the wreath, flowers and leaves at the Dollar Tree. These would be perfect for those fall craft shows. You don’t have much invested so you don’t have to put a large price tag on them to make a profit. Besides that they take only 15 to 30 minutes to complete. I used a 9” wreath for this creation but there are several different sizes available so that you can create wall hangings from the larger ones or candle collars from the smaller ones. You can use as many or as few materials as you want in order to create a unique fall wreath.
1.Cut stems to about 2” long.
2. Start inserting your flowers or stemmed leaves into your wreath randomly.
3. When you’re satisfied with the arrangement, glue into place.
4. Snip away any excess stems in the back.
5. Glue a few layers of non-stemmed leaves onto the wreath if you’re using those.
6. Add a hanger if these will be wall or door mounted. Homespun, rusty wire, or jute cord are great to use as hangers.  
Enjoy your new creation!
