DIY: Fall Guest Book Tree

Fall is upon us! The leaves are turning and the weather has become cool and crisp. Autumn is becoming a popular time to tie the knot. Brides and grooms have started to incorporate fall aspects into their wedding day. One quick and simple way to add some fall flavor to your special day is to glam up your guest book by creating a unique, fall themed, guest book tree.

This project is a quick and inexpensive! It can be done in less than an hour. All you need is a trip to your nearest craft store and a dollar store.  These are the items in which you will need to purchase:

-          Clear glass vase (or colored depending on preference) –Michael’s Craft Store
o   We will use the clear vase for the base of the tree
-          River rocks or pebbles – Dollar Store
o   You will need to buy enough rocks to fill the vase
-          Branches
o   You can utilize nature and collect branches outside!
o   You can also order branches off of Etsy, Ebay, or Craigslist
-          Die Cut Leaves (In the colors you choose) Michael’s Craft Store of JoAnn Fabrics
-          String
-          Hole puncher
First, you will take the base of your tree and fill it with rocks. Once the rocks are half way full, add branches to your vase. You will want to arrange your branches so the tree is symmetrical and won’t tip over. Once the branches are in place, you may fill the rest of the vase with rocks. Once the base of the tree is ready, grab your hole punch and punch a hole in the top of each leaf. Cut string or ribbon to desired length, and make a look for guests to hang the leaves on the tree.

Once you set the tree out for display, create a sample leaf so guests know what to put on the leaf. You can buy fun colored fall pens, gold, silver, orange, or red for guests to write with. Let your imagine soar. This simple, easy, and creative guest book tree is sure to be a hit and can last a lifetime!
