Materials you will need

  1. Fall leaves: Choose a variety of leaves in different shapes and colors. Maple leaves, oak leaves, and birch leaves work wonderfully for this project.
  2. Acorns and pinecones
  3. Ribbons: Select a few autumn-inspired ribbons, such as green, orange, red, or brown, to add a touch of elegance to your crown.
  4. Floral wire or a flexible twig: This will serve as the base for your crown.
  5. Scissors.
  6. Wire cutter.
  7. Hot Glue
  8. Floral tape: Optional, but it can help secure the leaves and ribbons in place.


  1. Collect and Prepare Your Leaves and Nature's Gem: Take a leisurely stroll through a nearby park or forest, collecting a variety of fall leaves. Look for leaves that are in good condition and free from tears or blemishes. You'll need enough leaves to encircle your head.
  2. Create the Base: Start by shaping the floral wire or twig into a circle that fits comfortably around your head. Twist the ends to secure the circle shape. If you're using floral tape, wrap it around the base to provide a smoother surface for attaching the leaves and ribbons.
  3. Attach the Leaves: Begin attaching the leaves to the base by threading them with the floral wire or using floral tape. Overlap the leaves slightly to create a full, lush look. Hide any imperfections with smaller leaves, acorn or pinecones.
  4. Add Ribbons: Cut the ribbons into varying lengths, depending on your desired style. Attach the ribbons to the crown by tying them in a simple knot or bow between the leaves. You can mix and match ribbon colors for a vibrant effect.
  5. Personalize Your Crown: Feel free to get creative and add other elements like small pinecones, acorns, or artificial flowers to give your crown a unique and personalized touch.
  6. Final Adjustments: Once you've attached all the leaves and ribbons, try on your crown and make any necessary adjustments. Ensure it fits comfortably on your head and that the leaves are securely fastened.

Whether you wear it to a fall festival, a wedding, for a photo session, or just to enjoy a leisurely walk through the autumn foliage, your fall crown will undoubtedly turn heads and capture the essence of this wonderful season. So, gather your materials and let your creativity shine as you craft your very own fall crown.
