DIY: Making an autumn wreath

I was in the crafting mood last week, so I decided to pick up some supplies (including a hot glue gun and glue sticks, each for $4) at Michael’s and make this whimsical autumn wreath. I found the instructions and template here.

The hardest part of creating this wreath was having to trace the template and cut out swirls for making the rosettes–I ended up cutting out 13 swirls. You can make as many or as few as you’d like, depending on how you want your wreath to look.

Once my swirls were all cut out, the rest was pretty simple. This is where you can get creative, combining different colors and making your rosettes small (wound tightly) or large (wound loosely). (Don’t the red ones remind you of the painted roses in Alice in Wonderland?!)

Finally, I hot glued my rosettes to the wreath, and stuck sprigs of fall berries into the wreath too. This is such a fun way to decorate for the upcoming months!
