If you’ve been a long time reader of this page, you’ll know how much I love painting wreaths. From painting watercolor wreaths in a variety of shapes to creating seasonal ones, I love ’em all. As a result, today’s DIY is a fun invitation that consists of a wreath made of tree branches and little apples. How fun is that? It contains all the elements of fall. And the best part is, you can modify it for any fall-related party invite. How cool is that?

Materials required for DIY Halloween invitations :-

First of all, create a rough rounded square outline around your paper. Paint a few twigs overlapping each other. A simple trick is to draw a thick branch first and then paint smaller branches around it in different directions. In addition to this, paint a couple of apples and small leaves.

The idea is to get a sort of frame with twigs and branches around the main invitation. After which you can add elements inside to complete.

Once the wreath is complete, start putting in a few elements inside the DIY Halloween invitation. I chose to paint a pumpkin on top with a banner around it. The banner can be used to explain what sort of party it is.

As a result, you have your guests know what to expect once they start reading the invite. The choice of wording is all up to you. Furthermore, you can go as creative as you can with the lettering. Add a bunch of swirls with a Tombow dual brush marker or any marker that you have. Even a felt tip pen will work.

After this clean up the pencil marks and scan your artwork. I also added a broom as a separation element( not pictured above).  The next step is to fill in the date, location and RSVP. You can do this manually by hand or use one of the editing softwares.

You can finish it off by keeping the white background. But if you want to take it up a notch, you can add an old paper texture digitally. Personally, I love the white background but the other one gives a creepy, vintage-y feel to the invite.
