Crinkle Leaf Wreath
l saw this in Better Homes and Gardens (photo below) and it was so cute! Depending on the colors you choose, you can hang it all year round -- if the colors are not particularly Holiday-y!
I chose gold with blue-purple/aqua accents. The one I saw was copper with aqua.
It's made of card stock! I used index cards!
Here's another idea for a wreath: Ornament Wreath!
What I used:
- Index cards
- Parchment paper to make a !4-inch leaf stencil
- Wooden beads
- Gold spray paint
- Aqua and purple-blue acrylic paint
- Cardboard for ring to glue them on
I cut ~50 leaves out of the index cards. If you fold them in half length-wise and then fold them accordion style & open them up, you get a cool crinkled look.
HOWEVER, I did 1 crinkled to test it out, but I left the rest of them flat because it's easier to spray paint flat surfaces.
I also painted these plain wooden beads blue and aqua and did a light spray paint of gold too once they dried.
So fancy looking already!
Then I glued them on to a cardboard ring. The wreath I made before seemed too small to me, so then I used the bottom of this circular table to make a large ring, maybe 12" or 14" inch wide Haha! Then I just glued them on a cardboard ring.
Here is the finished product! So fancy looking! I have the ornament wreath on the front door now and this one on a different door. I plan to switch them in January or at New Year's. This one isn't too specific, so it could go all-year round, but I'll probably make another wreath before then. Haha! :)
Give it a try! We are good at this!
