Fall Leaf wreath (FREE kids craft + fall décor)

Fall Leaf Wreath (made for free)

Last week my nieces and I created a fall leaf wreath (and we had lots of fun trying to say “fall leaf wreath” fast 3 times in a row).  This was a simple and fun project and did I mention, FREE! Smile

I cut a cardboard wreath form out of an old box by tracing a large and small mixing bowl for the guide.  And we raked and gathered a pile of leaves and brought some inside.

Then we just picked out the prettier/not broken ones and glued them to the cardboard wreath form.  I used my low temp glue gun (which still puts out hot glue just not quite as hot) and the girls were careful to not get their fingers in it.  I am sure you could use Elmer’s glue or even a glue stick but it will take longer to dry.

My nieces are 3 and 5 and they LOVE doing crafts and checking out all my seasonal décor.  We created this wreath for them to take home to enjoy.

Here’s the wreath all finished!  It took about 10-15 minutes to glue it all with their help Winking smile.

I glued a orange ribbon to the back and hung it on the back of my door to shoot pictures to share with you.

Such a simple, easy project.  But pretty too!  I thought about gluing some acorns to it but the girls wanted it to just have “leafs”, so we left it.

They took it home and hung it on their fireplace screen in front of their fireplace.  And they are already asking when we are going to make another wreath.

So send the kids out to collect some leaves, cut up a cereal box or a cardboard box to use for the wreath form, and get to gluing.  Create some fun fall décor and some memories too.

Do your kids love to craft?  What are some fall crafts you have done or plan to do this year?

    I love your Fall leaves wreath and I can hardly wait to make one for my house. My kids are grown but if my daughter was here she would enjoy making this wreath as much as your nieces. Thanks so much for sharing.

  1. […] Let kids create an autumn wreath to hang on the front door. You just need to cut them a template from cardboard and then have them to glue leaves in place, covering the entire template. They can decorate with pinecones, acorns or any craft supplies and the wreath can be hung by a ribbon, rope or anything you have on hand. Source – Thefrugalhomemaker […]
