DIY Fall Rake Wreath
Who would have known that this little old leaf rake (that had been hiding behind a pile miscellaneous garden tools that I had kept in my shed) would make such a beautiful, colorful fall wreath!!! It was definitely meant for bigger and better things as the rusty, aged rake prongs mixed in with the vibrant autumn colors make it such a cool piece to add to my fall décor!
DIY Fall Rake Wreath Tutorial:
Tools & Supplies:
- One old rake (no surprise there)
- One bouquet of fall décor
- Some wire (any wire will do, I found some used for hot wire fencing…worked great!)
- Wire cutters
- One or two rolls of raffia
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!
