Fancy a quick and easy craft project for a chilly afternoon? This wreath is so easy to make and looks so cheerful on a door. Wreaths are normally saved for Christmastime, but they can be such a lovely way to celebrate the seasons and by using foraged items it’s dead cheap too!

Arthur and I spent a morning picking up interesting looking nuts, crab apples and brightly coloured leaves. He really, really got into this and continued to keep an eye out for nice things for days afterwards.

I used a super cheap rattan wreath from Hobbycraft as a base and our foraged items.

If you want to make a wreath, start off by attaching leaves all around the base. Keep the leaves pointing in the same directions to have a nice visual flow. Once they’re attached, add your bigger items. I cheated big time when attaching the elements and used a glue gun. You could wire everything in though and I’d recommend doing that for heavier items.

I finished my wreath off with a big red bow, but you could leave yours completely natural and it will still look beautiful.

  1. What a great idea! My little one loves anything to do with arts and crafts and would love doing something like this so perhaps an activity for us this half term (we still have one week to go!). So creative, thanks for sharing this on #MarvMondays. Emily
