An Easy Peasy DIY Fall Wreath {Fall Ideas Tour}

Hey guys, on Monday I told you about the Fall Ideas Tour that is going on this week in Blogland.  I hope you've enjoyed the tour so far.  If you missed Monday and Tuesdays tours follow the links at the bottom of this post.  

I'm so honored and excited to be a part of this tour.  Today seven of my blogging friends and I share our Fall Wreath creations.  So without further adieu lets get today's leg of the tour started shall we!

My Fall Wreath is so easy peasy to make I almost feel guilty.

The How To

Step 1
Wrap the entire roll of ribbon around the wreath form, ensuring there is a long strand left to use for a double bow.

Step 2
Cut each stem off the fabric leaf picks and simply insert them behind each fold in the ribbon, working your way around the entire wreath.

Step 3
Insert four acorn picks evenly around the wreath.  Sorry, I was so engrossed in my fun project that I forgot to take pictures of this process.  You get a good idea of where I placed them in the photo below.

Step 4
Make a double bow with the strands of ribbon.  I've included a Bow Tutorial that I found on YouTube that might be helpful.

Step 5
Simply insert a cute Scarecrow pick in the knot of your bow and cut off the excess length of the pick. To secure it even more, hot glue the back of the hat onto a leaf.

Step 6
I was sure I took pictures of how I made the Scrabble tiles but for the life of me can't find them.  All I did was cut hardboard that I had in my stash into 2" squares using a compound mitre saw.  You could use real Scrabble game tiles as well.  Keep your eyes peeled for them at your local thrift stores.

Step 7
Draw letters and their corresponding numbers with a pencil and then fill them in with a black Sharpie marker.

Step 8
Cut a strand of green jute twine long enough to reach across your wreath. Starting in the center and working your way outwards on each side, hot glue your tile pieces onto the twine. Next tie or hot glue your twine onto the wreath, letting it droop a little.

That's it!  It took me all of an hour to make this wreath.  Probably would have taken less time had I not been checking my iPhone every two minutes.

If you're wondering why my wreath isn't hanging on a door.  We got a brand new factory painted finish door and Mr. Frugalista will not allow a single thing to hang from that $$$ door!  Insert sad face here.
