Make a wood rounds wreath to decorate your door for fall.
It is still a million degrees where I live (OK, it’s *only* in the 100s this week but it’s still hot) but I’m going to pretend like fall is just around the corner. I know some of you are enjoying dropping temperatures, so this project is for you.
I love to pair natural items with a bit of shimmer and color, and that’s what I did with this fall wreath project. Create rustic charm for your home by adding this round wood cut wreath to your front door. It’s simple and fun to make!
Supplies Used to Make a Wood Rounds Wreath:
- Round wood cuts with bark
- Wood glue
- Gold shimmer mist
- Burlap fabric
- Fabric flowers
- Decorative bird’s nest
- Hot glue gun
Use a large dinner plate as your guide to arrange round wood cuts in a circle. Leave a small gap (less than one inch) between each round piece.
Overlap more round wood cuts onto the first circle. Place them over the gaps left in step one. Use wood glue to attach the rounds over the bottom circle of wood rounds, and let the glue dry completely.
Mist the wood wreath with gold shimmer spray.
Cut a 14 inch length of burlap, fold the edges under, and pinch the strip in the center. Tie the center with a piece of string. Hot glue the burlap to the bottom of the wood wreath.
Hot glue an artificial bird’s wreath under the burlap strip.
Cut fall colored flowers off the bunch. Jewelry cutters are great for cutting through floral wire. Hot glue the flowers around the wood nest.
I opted to leave the nest empty, since the birds have all flown away. You could fill the nest with acorns or leaves for fall if you like. Have fun crafting and creating this fall wreath for your home!
