Maple Leaves Wreath

Capture the beauty of the magnificent red maple trees in the fall on a wreath that you can proudly display on your door for a few days during fall. One tip: when you collect the leaves, keep them moist and cool until you are ready to use them. This will prevent them from wilting and drying out too quickly.



Maple Leaf Wreath 1

For this project you will need:

- straw wreath
- maple leaves
- wire for wrapping


To make this wreath, read the following Wreath Tutorial for making a evergreen wreath. It is almost the same procedure.
2. Secure the wire to the wreath. Starting from the middle (inside) circle of the wreath, you add the first leaf and add then 2 or 3 more leaves in that row (depending on how wide your straw wreath is) working your way towards the outside of the wreath. Make sure the wire is holding the leaves down tightly. These leaves were held down at the stem.
3. After the row is finished, bring the wire under the wreath towards the middle and add then the next row of leaves (working clockwise). Make sure when adding each new row, that the new row of leaves cover the wire from the previous row.
4. Keep adding rows of leaves until you have completed the wreath.
5. Tuck the stems of the last row of leaves under the first row of leaves to hide them.

These leaves look shiny but only because they were kept moist until the project was finished. They are not dry yet.
