Hi there The Idea Room friends! I’m Jamielyn from iheartnaptime.net and I’m SO excited to be here today. I absolutely adore Amy and her blog. She is one of my favorite bloggers out there and I’m sure you can agree. :)

Today I’m going to share with you this simple and cute fall wreath. I absolutely LOVE decorating for fall! I was so excited to pull out all my fall decor this year.

Fall-Wreaths

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Supplies:

  1. Wreath (found at any craft store)
  2. Glitter leaves (found at Hobby Lobby)
  3. One square of felt
  4. Scissors
  5. Hot glue

The first thing you’ll want to do is make the felt flowers. These are really simple to make and can be used for many different crafts.

  1. Start by cutting out a 2 in circle. Don’t worry it doesn’t have to be perfect. ;)
  2. Start on one edge of the circle and cut a swirl until you reach the middle.
  3. Once your circle is cut, grab the edge from the middle and start rolling the piece in like a rose, hot gluing as you go.
  4. Then make about 10 more flowers. You can use different colors and make the circles bigger as well to get a unique look.

Next I glued my leaves around the center of the wreath.

Once the leaves were glued on, I glued felt roses to the center of the leaves and on some of the branches. Add a piece of lace and hang up your new wreath. :)

How To Make A Wreath using corn tassels

Fall is my very favorite season and I have asked a few of my favorite bloggers to share some of their fall favorites here with you.  I am so excited to have Brooke from All Things Thrifty sharing her tutorial for How to Make a Wreath with Corn Tassels today.  Brooke officially kicks off The Idea Room Fall Festival!

Hello to The Idea Room readers! I LOVE THIS BLOG. Amy rocks. The end.

My name is Brooke  and I normally blog over at All Things Thrifty where I post about my thrifty decorating addiction! Let me tell you a little about myself before we get going! In a nutshell, I grew up on a farm in Central Utah. I’m a mom of four little kiddos, and I love to decorate. My sisters, my mom, and I love to craft together, and the project I’m sharing with you today happens to be a wreath that my Sister Natalie made. I’m a super thrifty gal and I love to teach my tips and tricks. I’m telling ya peeps, sometimes the cheapest projects turn out the very best around my house. My favorite way to decorate my home is with ultra unique items that can’t be bought in any store. Come check out some of my furniture transformations, and you will see what I mean! I am thrilled to be part of Amy’s Fall Festival today, and I was super excited that she asked me to participate! Let’s get started!

This project most likely won’t cost you a dime to make.
You can’t beat FREE right!?!?

You will need:

A corn field {HA! yep, I said a corn field}

Scissors

A plastic bag

A pool noodle {Summer is over so just use an old one you have laying around or go buy one for $1 or less}

Some duct tape.

*Before you to stalking through the corn field off in the boonies, please ask permission. :)

Step 1: Gather 4 bags full of corn tassels.   Scissors work great for this. The tassel is the very top of the corn stalk in case you didn’t know.

Try your darndest to get tassels that are straight instead of tassels that spray all over the place.

Step 2: After you have a bag full of tassels, you need to make a pool noodle wreath by cutting it and duct taping it together. You can spray paint it if you want, but really no one will see the pool noodle once you are done.

Step 3: Divide your tassels into separate piles depending on their lengths. You can cut down your tassels if you need to.

Step 4: Make a small hole in the noodle with the end of your scissors and slide in your tassel one at a time. Start at the back with your longest {and straightest} corn tassels.

Step 5: Continue layering your tassels into your pool noodle until it is full.

The only thing that would make this wreath better is if it were MINE instead of my Sister’s. Don’t you think she should make me one? I think so.

I think a trio of corn tassel wreaths would be darling on my front door to celebrate FALL. I hope that you have enjoyed this fun {and more importantly basically FREE} idea, come visit me over at my blog! I would love to have you!
