My sister and her hubby were in town last weekend from Chicago for a quick visit over Labor Day weekend. They just moved a couple of months ago and I wanted to create something special for her new apartment.
I ran across an adorable leaf wreath a couple of weeks ago on Pinterest and thought this would be a perfect project to create for my sister’s front door. I found a large cardboard W for their last name from JoAnn Fabrics and got some leaves and wire ribbon from the Dollar Store.
I used my hot glue gun to secure each leaf onto the cardboard letter. I made sure to mix the color arrangement of red, green and yellow leaves.
Here’s a little bit of progress….
And a little more… Really, it’s quite easy. Just a lot of gluing!
Here’s the cardboard letter all with about 5 bags of leaves glued on!
Now it’s time to add on the wired ribbon so I can hang the large W.
I found this wired ribbon from the Dollar Store in a nice Fall pattern. I cut two 12 inch pieces and hot glued them onto the back of the large cardboard letter.
I tied the ends into a large bow and that’s it!
