Tired of traditional wreaths? Then you must give this fall rake wreath a peek! This fall rake wreath is a frugal and fun spin on the traditional wreath, plus it is something you can craft yourself in just minutes. Take a look below at how you can craft your own, using an old rake head and a few other common crafting supplies.
- Rake Head
- Assorted Faux Fall Leaves
- Small Pine Cones
- Hot Glue, Glue Gun
We found our rake at a local thrift store for a few dollars. We simply used a screwdriver to remove it from the rake handle. Leaves, pine cones, and even the hot glue can be easily found at your local craft or even dollar store.
- Begin by removing the head of the rake as mentioned. There is typically a screw that when loosened the head will come off.
- Apply some glue to the rake and press the faux fall leaves directly to the glue. Press in place until the leaves are secure. Continue to layer the leaves so they look naturally, as though they got caught up in the rake.
- Add some small pinecones directly on top of the leaves. Add a generous amount of hot glue to the bottom of the pinecones and press them to the leaves. Hold in place until dry and secure.
- It is now time to attach the ribbon for hanging. We used a thick, wire edge ribbon that we knew would be sturdy. Fold the ribbon in half and apply a generous amount of glue to the ends. Press the ribbon to the back of the rake and hold into place until secure.
Your rake wreath is now ready to be displayed! Hang it on a wreath hook, your front door, or even on your wall. It adds the perfect pop of call color and charm!
