I love a simple floral wreath to accent any kind of lettering. It is one of the biggest trends in lettering and art right now, and I foresee it will remain a trend for years to come.

Don't know what I'm talking about? 

This!

Or this!

A simple wreath like this makes a big impact, and impresses EVERYONE. But also, it's one of the easiest looks to achieve if you have the right tools, and a few extra minutes!

Here's what you'll need!

  • Cardstock suitable for brush pens - I use this kind (You can buy single packs cheaper at Wal-Mart, if you have one near!)
  • A Dual Brush Pen or other brush pen in the color of your choice (I'm using DBT 312)
  • A small nib brush pen or fine liner (I'm using the Fude Soft Tip)
  • A pencil
  • An eraser

Now we're ready to get started in creating our leaf. Before we begin, I'll show you the basic shapes needed to create my version of a leaf wreath.

This is the basic leaf shape. So simple right?

And this is the basic wreath shape....aka: a circle!

The darker lines represent the sections I divide my wreath into. Each of these sections will 'host' 3-4 leaves. A large leaf and two small ones--possibly more if you need to fill in space.

I like to draw the large leaf first, then add the two small leaves on either side of the line.

All my leaves go in the same direction, but you can switch that up if you want!
Once your leaves are drawn, it's time to sketch the quote inside.
