An Easy Peasy DIY Fall Wreath With Mini Banner

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.  Mine is an Easy Peasy Fall Wreath with a DIY Scrabble Tile Banner.

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

Step 1: Covering The Wood Wreath Form

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

Step 2: Adding Fabric Leaves

Cut the stems from the fabric leaf picks and simply insert them behind each fold in the ribbon, working your way around the entire wreath. Add a dab of hot glue to secure them in place.

Step 3: Attaching Fall Acorn Picks

Insert four Fall Acorn Picks evening 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 picture below.

Step 4: Tying a Bow

Make a double bow with the strands of ribbon.  I've included a Bow Tutorial that I found on YouTube that you may find helpful.

Step 5: Attaching A Scarecrow

Insert a cute Scarecrow pick or any other larger Fall pick into the knot of your bow. Secure it in place with a few dabs of hot glue.

Step 6: Using Hardboard To Make Scrabble Tiles

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 into 2-inch squares using a miter saw. You can use a straight edge and an Exacto knife to cut the board as well. If you would rather not make your own, tiles from a Scrabble game would work but because of their smaller size, they would have the same impact.

Step 7: Adding Numbers To The Tiles

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

Step 8: Making A Mini Banner

Cut a strand of green twine long enough to reach across your wreath. Starting in the center and working your way outwards on each side, hot glue your tiles onto the twine. Tie or hot glue the banner onto your wreath, letting it droop a little.

That's it!

It took less than an hour to make this project.  You'll notice from the photos that it isn't hanging on a door. We got a brand new custom factory painted door this summer and Mr. Frugalista will not allow anything to hang from it to avoid scratches. Insert sad face here because one of my favorite things each season is to hang a pretty wreath.
