  • Metallic paper - Fairway, Botanic, Moss 
  • Card stock - Pine, Forest

Step 1:

Gather tools and materials. Cut leaves according to template using scissors or a cutting machine. Cut out leaves in a variety of colors on metallic paper and card stock. Cover the foam wreath with tissue paper using decoupage medium and a paint brush. Using the hot glue gun, glue the leaves to the foam wreath so that they are all pointing the same direction.
