We’ve dressed up some of our favorite fall wedding invitations with fabric autumn leaves. If you’re going after the look of DIY fall wedding invitations for little cost, fabric leaves are an inexpensive embellishment you can find at your local hobby store. You can also use fresh autumn leaves but remember that dry leaves will not hold up well in the mail.

#1 Leaf & Twine

We doubled up on brown twine and wrapped it around our Rustic Details All in One Wedding Invitations. We wrapped the twine around the back and toward the front of the invite, then we placed the leaf upside down on the front and tied the twine around the stem of the leaf. You can tie the twine however you like; it doesn’t have to look like the knot shown (although we do like the twine tails).

#2 Leaf & Ribbon (two-sided)

To get the look of lace wedding invitations without relying on the invitation’s design, we wrapped cream lace around the Country Floral All in One Wedding Invitations and tied it in a knot on the front. Then we tucked a leaf inside the ribbon on the back of the invitation above the wording.

#3 Leaf & Ribbon (single-sided)

We used the same lace ribbon as in #2 and wrapped it around the Band of Lace All in One Wedding Invitations. We then placed a leaf, stem-side up, over the invitation’s photo and tied the lace into a bow around the leaf’s stem.

#4 Leaf & Twine (with knot)

We doubled up a piece of thick brown twine and wrapped it around the photo portion of these Sweet and Simple Wedding Invitations. We tied the twine in a knot on the front and cut the extra strings off flush with the knot. We then tucked a leaf behind the twine, which complements the photo beautifully!

#5 Leaf & Twine (wrapped stem)

The Lakeside All in One Wedding Invitations are gorgeous for fall but an autumn leaf adds a fun accent. We placed the leaf’s stem toward the middle of the twine and wrapped the twine around the stem a few times. We then tied a knot on the backside of the stem to prevent the twine from unraveling. We positioned the leaf where we wanted it then wrapped the twine around the back of the invite and tied it in a knot. We secured the leaf in place with a single glue dot toward the bottom.
