DIY Fall Rake Wreath

DIY Fall Rake Wreath

Ok so let me first say that I have NEVER made a wreath in my life and even so, this project turned out fabulous!  I literally slapped it together in 5 minutes and it only cost me about 4 bucks for the decorations.

Double WIN!!!

This little old rake had been hiding behind a pile of shovels and miscellaneous garden tools that I had kept in my shed.  Hmm…how long had this been sitting here?  I could only assume it was probably from way back when I actually gave a hoot about raking up my front yard leaves 😉  After a quick glance at my lawn, I decided that the colorful, (growing in size) leaf blanket that was covering it, wasn’t so bad.  Heck, it gave the yard more of a ‘FALL’ feel, right??? 😉

Either way, I had determined that this little rake was meant for bigger, better (and much more fun) things!

DIY Fall Rake Wreath Tutorial:

Tools & Supplies:

  • One old rake (no surprise there)
  1. One bouquet of fall décor
  2. Some wire (any wire will do, I found some used for hot wire fencing…worked great!)
  3. Wire cutters
  4. Pliers
  5. One or two rolls of raffia

Directions:

Place bouquet where it will look the best

Cut a couple pieces of wire at about 1 foot each

Wire bouquet tightly onto rake by using pliers to twist the wire tightly

Cut excess wire off and push pokey ends down

Find the center of one of the bundles of raffia

Center raffia bundle underneath neck of rake

Tie a knot

I tied more strands of raffia directly to the knot that I had just made with the large bundle of raffia.  These raffia strands should hang downwards in front of the handle of the rake, covering the bottom of the bouquet and wire.  Add as many as needed

Ta-Da!  Easy right?

Even for this UN-educated wreath maker!

    I love your cute rake. I wish I had one for my front door. Guess I will have to go look for an old rake. Also the turkey is so cute and different. So easy to make.

      Yep, you will have to go out and dig out a rake! It was fun making the turkey especially with my whole family! 😉
