Instructions for a colorful autumn wreath made of leaves

Make your own autumn wreath out of colorful leaves

The green maple leaves turn into a bright red and fiery yellow in autumn! Due to their beautiful colors, they offer a visual pleasure and are perfect as handicraft material for a lush autumn wreath. All you need is a straw wreath, colorful maple leaves, and floral wire, also called binding wire.

First attach the beginning of the floral wire to the blank by wrapping the wire around the blank once and twisting the end in place. Then place some leaves on the wreath and tie them around the blank with green floral wire. Arrange the sheets so that they cover the blank from the outside, top and inside. Also, squeeze the leaves a little at the leaf nerve so that they bend and protrude a little, rather than just lying flat on the frame. It should be wrapped as tightly as possible, but not too tight.

Then wrap the next row of leaves on the wreath so that it covers the wire from the previous one. It is worked in a spiral until the whole wreath is covered with leaves. Finally, make a hanger so you can hang the wreath on the door!

Autumn wreaths with hydrangeas

Even if many hydrangeas often look brown and dried out from afar in autumn, they have not withered, but simply change the color of their flowers. Mostly they shine in strong dark pink and green and blend in perfectly with the autumn garden. This autumn color makes it ideal as an autumn decoration.

If you touch the hydrangea flower balls in late autumn, you will notice that they are hard. This is an important indication that these have already matured enough to be processed into wonderful autumn wreaths.

If you are using a styrofoam wreath, wrap it with satin ribbon. For an interesting look, combine autumn hydrangeas in different colors such as purple, beige and white.

A wreath of dried plants can also act as a potpourri – just drizzle with a little cinnamon or orange essential oil. You can also add dried orange peel.

From late summer to winter we are delighted with the bright red berries of the mountain ash. And even after the rowan tree loses its leaves in winter, the berries that grow on umbels stick to the tree.

To make this wreath out of rowan berries, you could proceed as with the instructions with the leaves. It is also not necessary to wrap the blank with bunches of berries from below. Finally, hide the ends of the last bouquet under the first bouquet and decorate the wreath with a bow in a contrasting color.

For the production of dried flowers, roses are the absolute classic. They also look spectacular on an autumn willow wreath. Here are 3 methods you can use to preserve roses. Spray the dried flowers with hairspray to keep their color longer.

Autumn wreaths with physalis

The orange fruits of the lantern flower can be used for all kinds of pretty decorations in autumn. It is best to cut off whole stems for this. Make sure that the capsules should be fresh because then they are still soft and won’t break. In late autumn the lanterns gradually begin to decompose until only a filigree framework surrounds the berries. So if you make a wreath with physalis, it will dry up decoratively over time.

As you can see in this example, yellow and purple also go wonderfully with orange. The yellow flowers of the Craspedia, also called ‘drumsticks’, are a great eye-catcher next to romantic mini roses and delicate gypsophila in this colorful wreath.

Autumn wreath with apples

Autumn wreath for the door made of apples, hops and wild wine

Autumn time is apple time! You can not only enjoy the delicious fruits in cakes and jams, but also process them into a beautiful autumn wreath. For this craft project, you will need: lots of apples, a wire hanger, pliers, a crochet hook to drill holes in the apples. A few sprigs of hops, rose hips, and wild grape complete the look.

Make your own autumn wreath from wire hangers and apples

  • Use the pliers to bend the wire bracket into a circular shape
  • Now the hard part – you need to “unscrew” the point where the ends of the hanger join, being careful not to cut a piece of wire.

  • Then you need to pierce the apples with the wire. It is easier to work from the bottom up.
  • Repeat the step until there is no more room. In this example there are exactly 21 apples on the wire bow.
  • Then twist the wire ends together again.
  • Finally, decorate the wreath with vine and hop branches.
