Nature Walk Wreath Decoration

Total Time Needed: 2-3 Hours

The end product - a one-of-a-kind door decoration - is certainly special, but the best part of this project is the "collecting walk." This homemade wreath is an ideal group project - each family member gets a chance to contribute, and there's no wrong way to do it.


  • Nature objects you've gathered on a walk (dried leaves, acorns, seedpods, pinecones, twigs, etc.)
  • Large grapevine wreath (available at garden centers) or individual small ones
  • Floral wire
  • Glue gun


Take your family for a stroll through a neighborhood park or any nearby nature spot to gather whatever catches your eye.

Back at home, invite everyone to arrange their finds on a large grapevine wreath, or provide individual small ones to serve as take-home keepsakes.

Twigs, stems, and larger items can be woven into the grapevine or secured with floral wire. A parent can affix small items such as acorns or pebbles with a glue gun. Hang the finished product proudly -- it should last until spring.
