Rectangular Leafy Wreath

Update your traditional circular fall wreath with a new take on shape.

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 moss
  • U-shaped florist's pins
  • Florist's wire
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Preserved 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.
