I recently decorated my front porch for fall. But before I reveal it to you, I want to share the pattern and tutorial for my pretty fall felt leaf wreath. This wreath features gorgeous autumn colors swirling around on a rustic twig wreath. The other fall décor projects in this picture are my felt succulents and my antique paper hydrangea.
I purchased the twig wreath base at Michaels, and I have seen similar wreaths in garden nurseries and home stores. The inside measures 10″. Once you have your twig wreath, download our leaf pattern below and use that template to cut the felt.
For our felt leaf wreath, we used a variety of wool blend felts in burnt orange, purple, marsala red, and light grey. If you like these colors, feel free to replicate what we did here. Or use whatever colors you like best!
Once you’ve cut all your felt leaves, use a low-temperature hot glue gun to form and attach the leaves around the wreath. Remember to layer the leaves slightly and work them into the very center of the wreath. We also added a few felt leaves to the outside of the wreath to give the effect of leaves blowing in the wind.
Now that you’ve crafted your felt leaf wreath, attach a length of string to the wire frame at the back and hang it from your front door. This handmade wreath would also look great above a window or a bed—or as a centerpiece for a beautiful Thanksgiving table. I’d love to see your version of my felt leaf wreath and how you decorate with it, so make sure to share it on Instagram and use the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
