10/23 Making a Wreath with Wax Dipped Leaves

10/23/2019 By Taina Laraba

Thousands of people love buying new autumn wreaths loaded with leaves of sorts. But I think it's better when you can make your own because you can choose how you'd like it to look. Suppose you bought a wreath and it had too much orange in it, well there's not much you can do.

For this project, I'm going to recommend that you get a grapevine wreath to work from. There not very expensive and you can get them in different sizes.

Using this is going to make this very easy.

Step 1. Turn on your glue melter and allow to heat up (read the instructions).

Step 2. Heat up some glue, maybe 3 glue sticks

Now the fun part!

Step 3. Take one of your leaves and dip the stem into the hot glue and put in between the grapevine of your wreath. Take another leaf and do the same thing, placing opposite from the first one.

Step 4. Continue doing this for each of the four sides of your wreath. Then begin placing leaves in between this first set of four.

This is creating a grid from you to work from so your not just putting leaves in any old place.

Work in both the front and back at the same time. Place a few leaves in the front, then a few in the back.

Before you know it, you'll have a very full wreath full of real leaves that you waxed yourself.
