Make a statement on your front door with this White Leaf Fall Wreath tutorial.
I wanted something a little different for my front door wreath this year. I had something black and off-white in mind, maybe with little berries that were painted black. I searched what seemed like every craft store in the Scottsdale area, and finally came upon these off-white and brown, silk maple leaf picks at Michaels. I bought them all, and then went to another Michaels to look for more. But unfortunately, that Michaels only had large sprays of similar leaves. So I bought a few of those too.

After putting all the leaves on the grapevine wreath, and then giving the leaves a healthy dose of Krylon Glitter Shimmer, I looked at the wreath and felt like it needed to be at a wedding. Ugh. The black berries I had planned on putting on it wouldn’t even show and it would still look like a wedding wreath. Is there even a thing such as a wedding wreath?
So, I went back to the craft store and searched through all the colorful fall florals to find something that will add a touch of fall to the wreath. There were silk mums and pretty picks of wheat. I decided on this orange spray. One was enough to add the perfect hint of fall color to this white leaf fall wreath.
Putting the wreath together is quite simple. I just started with the white leaf picks and tucked them into the grapevine wreath. I didn’t even bother using the wire (or glue) to hold them in place. I just kept tucking the leaves in and around. It helps to hang the wreath on the wall and step back to see if you are placing the leaves evenly.
Of course, your wreath doesn’t need to be as full as mine. I just like my wreaths fluffy.
