Fall is finally here and I am so excited to get my home decorated and ready for the season. One of the first places I like to decorate is my front porch and I always do so with DIY fall wreaths! Believe it or not, DIY fall wreaths are relatively simple to make. Just take a look at the ideas below if you need some inspiration.
DIY Craft Day: Fabulous Fall Wreaths For Your Front Door
To begin you’ll need a few of the following things:
-hot glue to attach everything together
-Pins (if needed to attach things to the foam form)
Now, here are a few of my very favorite ideas.
Autumn Flower Wreath
Wrap a strip of burlap ribbon so that your wreath form is completely covered. Attach with hot glue or a pin. Once the burlap is attached, use floral wire or hot glue to attach colored flowers to your wreath form. You can use as many flowers as you would like. I just love how it looks when they are filled full of gorgeous blooms like this!
Live Floral Wreath
If you liked the idea above but would like to use real flowers instead of fake ones, follow this tutorial
from one of my favorite bloggers to make it happen. You’ll need a wire floral form as well as some floral wire to attach your greenery. Tie things off with a large ribbon when complete. Because it is made from live greenery, I recommend hanging this one indoors! That way the blooms will stay prettier for a longer period of time, and you can enjoy the smell of the blooms.
For an easy thirty minute DIY project, try making this burlap wreath. Wrap a long burlap strip around the form of your wreath, attaching at the beginning of the strip and then again at the end. The burlap should be arranged in a way that the form is completely covered. Once covered, finish off the project by tying a large ribbon around the wreath.
If you have extra fabric scraps leftover from another project, this is a great way to put them to use! Gather all of your fall colored fabric scraps and cut them into long 2” wide strips. Tie these strips around your wreath form, fluffing them as you go along. Repeat until you have no more fabric scraps or until the wreath form is completely covered.
