Anu has been decorating for Autumn over at Nalle’s House. Her latest project was making a lovely wreath for her front door from a few rescued items, including an out of date text book and branches from her yard.
To craft this wreath, Anu started by making a wreath form. She used birch branches, since they are very flexible, forming them into a circle and keeping them together using wire. Next, Anu used real leaves to make some leaf templates, then cut out leaf shapes from the old text book using those templates. She attached wire “stems” to the book page leaves. The wire make it possible for her attach and layer the leaves onto the wreath form. Anu accented the wreath with some felted acorns that she already had. Doesn’t it look gorgeous against her dark wood door?
