DIY Fall Leave Paper Wreath

Fall! Fall finally arrived in our area. The colors of leaves decorate every hill and valley, the cooler and the freshness of the air is just perfect 🙂

I went looking for Fall/Autumn theme decorations from our storage and I realized that we do need more decorations in our house and my craft room, too 🙂 So here’s one of the the decorations I made:

Have I told you that I LOVE MY SILHOUETTE CAMEO A LOT? 😀 This handy dandy die cut machine is amazing craft buddy ever! I started with searching for Fall/Autumn Theme cutting file from Silhouette Online Store and found a bunch of them with pretty good deal because I subscribe to their monthly subscription.

I found this pretty Fall Wreath. Open the file on Silhouette Studio Designer Edition. Resize it to the size you like. I did mine to 11″ x 11″. Because I used 10.5″ circle cake base cardboard as the wreath base. After I resized it, ungroup the shapes to cut with different colors.

Once the shape is ready, send them to cut one by one to Silhouette machine. I used Red, Orange and Dark green cardstocks for the leaves and dark brown for the pine cones.

I want the pine cones look more sparkly, so I added some glitter glue all over them and set them aside to dry while I was working on the leaves.

I added the vine for the leaves using my embossing tool and foam pad.

When I arranged them on the circle cardboard, the center need something. I decided to have a thanksgiving quote for the middle. I found the give thanks phrase in my library from Kolette Hall Studio. I resized it first to fit in the middle of the wreath and the cut it using Black cardstock.

I added some Chocolate Distressing Ink on the leaves with dauber sponge to give some rusty and fall-ish looking 🙂

When everything is ready, I put them together using Liquid Glass glue from Close To My Heart. The pine cones I added them the last with 3D foam tape.

  1. This year I am sending Santa a letter requesting a SILHOUETTE CAMEO. Hopefully, he’ll respond. 😉 Your wreath is beautiful! It sure is a great way to welcome Fall. And, what a nice sparkly touch with the pine cones. Have a great week!

  2. I had no idea there were full wreaths in the Silhouette store! All your little details like the glitter on the pine cones and the embossing on the leaves really make this a great project. I love the peak into your craft area. Wish mine was as organized.

  3. I love this! Just got my Silhouette today and can’t wait to get started on SOMETHING. I think this may be the first project I do.
