Fall Square Wreath

It’s my favorite time of the year again~ Autumn! Time to get out the decorations out to celebrate the Fall Harvest Season. This year I wanted to make something that would be great outside hanging from a fence near a pumpkin patch!

The pumpkin patches have not arrived here yet in North Carolina, so I went with few different scenarios. No worries though in the next few weeks the leaves will change and be gone and the holidays will be upon us! Yay!

I had originally bought this group of sticks to make a vertical corn swag, but the more I worked with the sticks the more I wanted something a little different, so I took them apart and made a natural square wreath.

Next I added a Goodwill wooden tray with a little chalkboard paint, a few pieces of real Indian corn and a couple of hungry crows. I hope you like what I came up with this year~ Enjoy the FREE Printable too of the “Hello Fall & Leaves” for your projects!

Supplies:

TIP: I used my “oldschool” overhead projector to add the chalk art to my tray, (see the tutorial below).

Take your bundle of sticks apart and separate them into four bundles.

How to make a square wreath

Make the top and bottom bundle the strongest branches.

Make a square vine wreath

 Use floral wire to wrap in a crisscross pattern on each corner. Pull tight and twist. Add hot glue to each corner in between the sticks to make the branches more stable.

Cover floral wire with jute twine

Take your twine and neatly wrap in a crisscross pattern around the front and glue tight.

Bundle 3 Indian corn stalks together with Floral wire. Add wheat picks to the corn leaves. Tie the corn bundle to the corner of your wreath with twine and add a bow. Add extra stick bundle to right side of wreath.

Chalkboard Tray

For the tray sign, I sanded the center because it had grooves that were deep and I thought they might catch the chalk and mess up the lettering. Paint your tray with chalk paint and let it dry. Drill holes in the tray ends and add jute wire to attach tray!

Stenciling Chalkboard Art with an Overhead Projector

Supplies:

  • Transparency paper for your printer
  • Overhead projector
  • Damp towel or sponge
  • Chalk pens or regular chalk 
  • Printer

Tip: If you are using real chalk, sharpen the ends for a finer point and easier drawing. To make the graphic I like to start with a clean pallet to work with~ Google the color white. Upload it to Picmonkey or another photo editor program and crop it to 8×10, then save. Download to your computer.

I use Pixelmator or Photoshop Elements to create a sign with fonts  I have acquired over the last couple of years.

Fonts used are:

  • For the “hello” it is Channel 
  • The “FALL” is Valentina Regular
  • The leaf dingbats are JI Nature Bats

Turn on your projector and adjust the pic. Tape the transparency paper to the projector so it does not move once you get them placed just right. Take the chalk pen and outline the words. I then turn the projector off and I free hand the rest.

Use your wet towel or even q-tips to fix the mistakes. And that’s it! Super easy and fast professional looking chalk art! And of course if you do not have a projector. You can always free hand it, it takes a little practice and touching up but it’s totally doable.
