DIY Fall/Thanksgiving Initial Wreath

Can you believe we're already in November? I know everyone and their cousin's say "this year is going by way too fast" every single year, but seriously- where has the time gone? Thanksgiving is in a few weeks so I figured I'd share with you my most recent DIY project if you're planning on hosting this holiday or if you just want to decorate and be festive :)

I was on Pinterest (duh!) and came across this fall wreath:

I love how festive and colorful this wreath is and decided I'd take my own spin on it and came up with this:


What you'll need:

Grapevine wreath
Hot glue gun
Fake leaves/garland
Wooden initial
Burlap
Scissors
Fake acorns


Step 1: Hot glue some fake leaves in the bottom right section of the grapevine wreath


Step 2: Cut burlap into 1-2 inch squares and fold over, securing with a hot glue gun


Step 3: Alternate gluing layered pieces of burlap and leaves


Step 4: Glue the wooden initial wherever you see fit on the wreath along with random acorns 

And that's it! Everyone can make this DIY wreath- it's inexpensive and such a fun craft. I love putting personal touches in my decorations each season and think this is perfect for the fall season, especially for Thanksgiving! Everything in total cost me under $20 ($17.86 to be exact)! Everything was found at Michael's and I was able to use of their 40% off coupons.




Stay tuned for a DIY Thanksgiving centerpiece I'm creating in the next week or so!
