That’s how it works:

  • Prepare all necessary materials.
  • Experiment with the arrangement of the leaves and decide what order you want them in.
  • Cut a piece of twine for each leaf. Cut the pieces longer than you expect to need. You can always shorten the cord later. Tie the twine around the stem of each leaf and tie a knot.
  • Tie the other end of the string to the stick. Knot it to secure. Continue until all the leaves are attached in the order you chose. Pay attention to how the tapestry looks. You can change the position of the leaves by shortening the length of the pieces of thread.
  • Adjust the spacing between the cords and leaves so everything is in balance.
  • Hang your DIY wall hanging with tape or clips and enjoy the end result!

DIY garland of autumn leaves. What you need:

  • Leaves in different fall colors
  • tape
  • Strong tape or glue
  • Clear acrylic spray paint

That’s how it works:

  • Pick only good-looking leaves and place them under a book overnight. Do not use completely dried leaves as they may crumble. You need leaves that still contain some moisture.
  • Spray all the leaves on the front side with acrylic paint. So they last a little longer. After drying, spray the back as well. Let the leaves dry completely.
  • Lay your ribbon on a flat surface and spread the leaves evenly face down, mixing the shapes and colors.
  • Apply small strips of tape to the stems. For this you need a strong adhesive tape. Press the leaf stalks to ensure they are securely attached to the ribbon.

That’s how it works:

  • Paint the foam wreath dark brown because the chestnuts are round and cannot completely cover the wreath.
  • Glue the chestnuts flat side down to make them more stable and secure on the wreath. Work from the inside out, making sure there are no gaps.
  • For the bow, you can use a ribbon of the desired color. Glue on the bow and use the leftover ribbon to make a hook that you can use to hang the wreath later. Be sure to use strong hot glue for the hook.

  • Dip the edges of a pine cone in paint. For the wreath you need about 2 bags of pine cones, so a total of about 40-45 pine cones.
  • Place the paint-dipped pinecone on a clean paper plate. Continue tinting the edges of the pine cones in different colors. Allow the pine cones to dry completely (at least a few hours, preferably overnight).

Use different colors

  • Plug in your glue gun, let it heat up and place the wreath of wire on the table. Start with the inner ring of the wreath shape by gluing on a dry, painted pinecone. Continue gluing the pine cones along the wreath shape until the wire frame is no longer showing. The easiest way is to arrange some pegs on the wreath before gluing to determine the positions. Pro Tip! We recommend that you first wrap the wire wreath with jute ribbon and then glue the pine cones to the ribbon with hot glue. This way the pine cones will stick better to the wreath.
