Blue and White Fall Wreath

It's starting to feel a bit like fall here in New York!  The weather feels cool and some of the leaves are changing color.  Does the color blue come to mind when you think of fall colors?  Probably not!  I'm the type of person that thinks outside the box, especially when it comes to decorating. I used a curtain valance that I already had and purchased the leaves to make a fall wreath using my favorite color blue.

What You'll Need:

Artificial Fall Color Leaves

Wreath Form

Curtain Valance

Pine Cones

Hot Glue Gun

Staple Gun

Scissor

Small Nails

Needle & Thread
   


HOW TO:

Lay the curtain valance on a flat surface and flip upside down.  Wrap the valance tight around the wreath form.  Corn wreath forms can be messy, so leave the plastic intact.  After you wrap the valance, secure it with a nail until the form is completely covered.


NAIL IT
A few nails will do it!   
I pulled the fabric really tight and used about four nails.


You can push the nail straight in or if the fabric is too thick you can use a hammer.



Now it's time to add the leaves and pine cones.




ASSEMBLE THE LEAVES

Pull a few of the leaves off the branches and arrange them in a C shape on one side of the wreath. Use a staple gun to secure them in place.  Now glue the pine cones on top of the leaves using a hot glue gun.



I made a loop on the back of the wreath for easy hanging.  I simply used a needle and thread to make the loop.

HANG
Hang the wreath inside like I did.  Or outside under a covered porch on your front door.
