Fall Doily Leaf Wreath

Pin It
It is time to get all my fall decorations up and I decided this year to make a new wreath for the front door. This was seriously the easiest and cheapest wreath I have ever thrown together.  I got all the supplies at the dollar store.. and it only cost me $4!!  If you didn't mind a monochromatic version it would only cost you $2! YES TWO DOLLARS?!  What else in the world could you get for two bucks these days?
The supplies are simple.  A wreath form and leaf doilies.  Side note: isn't the word "doily" just funny? It is strange to see it written.. doily, doily, doily.. 
Each pack of doilies is plenty to do one wreath, but I bought three different colors to give it variety.  You could do a single color if you wanted a different look.

Just hot glue the doilies to the wreath form, making sure you stagger them to the left and right and overlap them to cover the entire form. 

 I used a repeating color pattern, but you could also do it randomly.  Make sure that you are only glueing down the center of the doily so the laser-cut edges are free.

The entire process took me less than 10 minutes. (Seriously, the biggest time suck was trying to get the doilies apart!) 

I hung my wreath on my front door.  It isn't directly exposed to the elements, but the doilies haven't seem effected by the humidity or temperature changes:
