When I start decorating for each season, one of my favorite places to begin is with a wreath. It’s a simple, inexpensive easy way to add seasonal cheer right at your front door! This DIY fall wreath is the perfect way to greet your guests this season. I had so much fun making these that I ended up with three! Check it out.
The first step to making this wreath is to grab your supplies. I picked up everything here from Michaels. I decided I wanted to make a large wreath for our front door and two smaller ones for our french doors in the back of the house. Grapevine wreaths are perfect for a fall look, so I grabbed three of those. I spent quite a while in the floral section picking my favorite pieces.
I’m not a fan of the traditional fall colors and elements, so my decor tends to be more of a rustic interpretation of fall rather than orange leaves and mini pumpkins or something. I ended up with cotton, a lot of greenery and a few flower pieces.
This type of wreath is so easy to make! To start, use floral scissors to trim the parts of the wreath that are sticking out. Then trim your florals down with wire cutters. You’ll want to keep a few longer pieces, but mostly shorter ones with stems that are about 1-2″ long.
Once you have all your pieces trimmed and ready, the real fun begins. Start layering them into your wreath. The great thing about the grapevine wreath is you can simply tuck the pieces in between the branches—no glue or tape required!
Keep layering in pieces, but make sure you hold your wreath up every once in a while to make sure the pieces won’t fall out once it’s vertical. I like to keep mine more simple, so I keep my floral pieces to part of the wreath and let the beauty of the grapevine shine too.
Once I was happy with the positioning, I finished it with a pretty gold bow at the bottom and hung it using a wreath hanger on the front door!
For the other two wreaths, I followed the same steps but invited Scott to make a wreath with me. We used the same elements for cohesiveness since they were going to be hanging side by side on the french doors, but we each made our own design. Didn’t he do great? You can’t even tell which is mine and which is his! 🙂 Arts and crafts time with him is such a treat—my two favorite things together. Keep an eye out for the wreaths in our upcoming fall home tour, yay! 🙂
Now that our wreaths are done, I’m ready to tackle the fall decor in the rest of the house! Woo hoo!
