How to make a fall wreath

Wreaths are one of my favorite seasonal decorations. I actually made 2 last year for Christmas remember? There was the garland wreath and the bulb wreath. I just simply adore the fact you can alter them for any season. Of course, one of my favorite seasons is fall. I just love the change in weather, the smells, and of course the colors.

I really wanted my fall wreath to demonstrate the colors of fall, so I tried to keep the look realistic. Of course there are SO many options out there, your wreath can be whatever you desire it to be. All you have to do is pick up the supplies and get to work!

DIY Fall Wreath
This wreath captures the colors of fall, and some of the smells too!

What you need:

  • 1 stick/branch wreath
  • 2 strands of leaves – desired color
  • 1 package mini pinecones (make sure they smell good!)
  • 4-5 beaded branches
  • hot glue gun
  • ribbon in desired color

Step 1: Gather all your materials and lay them out

Step 2: Wrap the leaves around the stick wreath to get the desired look you want. Follow that up with hot glue I some areas to keep it in place.

Step 3: Next, take your ribbon and wrap it around the wreath, making sure not to overrun any of the leaves. Hot glue it into place

Not bad right? Bonus: This entire project only cost me $20!! If you go to the store to buy a pre-made one, they range anywhere from $30-$60. Why not make your own so that it can be how YOU want it?!

What is your favorite holiday decoration? My mom LOVES Christmas trees!! She has a ton of them throughout the house during Christmas.

    So pretty! Can’t wait to start seeing more of those colors outside… you’re making me all excited for Fall! I really love decorating with wreaths as well. For Christmas, I had one on almost every door in my place lol. I ended up making most of them because I couldn’t find what I wanted in the store, and just the act of making them puts you in the spirit :)

    Happy Friday, love!
