Hi, Friends! It’s the beginning of a new week and new month! And, do I have the perfect project for this time of year – a DIY fall oak leaf wreath.
My inspiration was this oak leaf wreath that I saw on Pinterest from Crate and Barrel. I checked the website and they no longer sell it. I loved the look of the oak leaves, but alas, we don’t have any trees in our yard that have nice fall color.
But, yesterday I was at my inlaw’s house and they have a lot of trees! With all the rain and wind we’ve had the past few days, there were tons of pretty oak leaves in their yard! So, when I was getting ready to head home, I asked my mother-in-law for a few grocery bags so I could gather up some leaves.

This makes for an incredibly full and lush fall wreath. The leaves will dry and crinkle, but I think I’ll like it that way as well. If you live in a cooler climate, it would last longer looking like this if hung outside in the cool air.
Of course, you could use faux leaves, but they cost money! I hope you enjoy making your own! Let me know how it turns out!!!
