Last year I made this corn husk wreath for fall (which is still one of my favorites!). This year I wanted to create a fall leaf wreath, especially since we don’t really get to see the changing colors down here in San Antonio.

I wanted to use real leaves and these preserved ones from the craft store did the trick. You can buy a big bunch for about $8 (use your 40-50% off coupon to get them cheaper!). All I did was stick small branches of my leaves into a grapevine leaf form, that’s it. No glue needed!

How to Make a Fall Leaf Wreath in 15 Minutes

Step 1. Cut small branches of leaves

Cut (or break) off smaller pieces from the big branch of preserved leaves. You want a few inches of leaves and a branch a couple inches long. Sometimes the leaves are smushed together. Use your fingers to unfurl the leaves as needed.

Step 2: Stick branches into grapevine wreath

Take a small branch of leaves and stick it in your wreath form. It should be secured on its own, but you can add a dab of hot glue if you want to make it extra secure. Continue working your way around the wreath sticking in more leaves until it is full.

Step 3: Hang with a burlap ribbon

After you’ve filled your wreath hang with a ribbon (I used a wide piece of burlap ribbon for mine).

Once you are done enjoying this wreath for the fall, you can either save it for next year, or remove the branches, save them for another project, and make a new wreath with the grapevine wreath form. Check out how you can turn this into a poinsettia wreath for Christmas in minutes!

  1. This is stunning, I’m hoping to be heading to Vermont soon for the fall colors, maybe I need to watch a leaf preserving video so I can bring some of my favorite fall memories home with me!
    If you have never experienced a Vermont fall I highly suggest it!

    • That sounds wonderful Tammy! How special to use actual leaves that you’ve foraged (rather than the ones I bought at the craft store)! I spent 4 years living in Boston so I love the New England fall. There is nothing quite like it! Unfortunately we don’t get much changing color at all down here in San Antonio during the fall. It is a bummer!
