Rectangular Leafy Wreath

Rectangular Leafy Wreath from Better Homes and Gardens:

Leaf wreaths are sold in craft and decorating stores, yet it's easy to make your own. See instructions and tips below.


  • Styrofoam wreath form (or a wire form)

  • Sheet mossU-shaped florist's pinsFlorist's wire

  • Hot-glue gunPreserved fall leaves

  • Fall ornament (optional)


  1. Create a wreath hanger at the top of the wreath using sturdy wire wrapped around the form and bent into a hanging loop.

  2. Cover a Styrofoam wreath form with sheet moss using U-shaped pins to attach the moss. (On a wire form, wrap thin florist's wire all the way around the wreath to secure the moss.)

  3. Next, use U-shaped pins or dabs of hot glue to attach preserved or artificial leaves all around the wreath.

  4. If desired, hang a pumpkin ornament in the center.
