23. Make a Wreath

Having a wreath for every season helps to make your home feel festive. The only trouble is that if you want to store a wreath for every season, you’re going to need a lot of attic or closet space. Keeping wreaths for every season can also be very expensive. On average, a large wreath costs between $30 and $50, and some luxurious brands even go for over $100. Lucky for you, it’s actually very easy to make your own wreath using leaves that you got for free in your own backyard.

All you need is some wire and a bunch of leaves. You could also take a wreath mold and incorporate leaves and other natural foliage. Wreath molds can be found in the craft section of Dollar Tree for just $1 each.  Another way to make a fall leaf is to display them flat. If you do not want to put this away in storage, you could make it from scratch every year. These are so cheap to make you might actually find yourself creating these autumn leaf wreaths for your friends and family. And if you want this wreath to last, it is possible to cover the leaves in wax so that they will be preserved for years to come.
