10 DIY Fall Wreaths
People who love fall definitely agree with this quote, “There are two times of the year: Autumn and waiting for autumn.” After all, autumn brings with it the gorgeous colors of the changing leaves, cooler temperatures, cozy meals, and a chance to bring the outdoors inside.
If you’re looking for a way to bring a bit of the feel of fall to your place and you like to get a bit crafty, then it’s time to make a beautiful fall wreath. There are tons of styles you can choose from depending on your preferences – so take a look at these and gather your crafting materials!
- Fall Burlap Wreath: If you like a simple wreath and, perhaps, you’re not so sure of your crafting skills, then this is a great starter project. It’s easy to assemble, and you can customize the colors you choose based on the silk fall leaves you purchase and your bow.
- Fall Leaf Wreath: This is a perfect wreath for those with little to no crafting skills whatsoever as all you need to do is stick your preserved oak leaves into a grapevine wreath – so simple! And then you finish it off with a simple burlap ribbon loop. (Silk fall leaves would also work for this project.)
- Fall Initial Wreath: Initial wreaths have become really popular in recent years, and crafters are charging a lot of money to make them for you – so you should certainly learn this DIY one. Buy your initial at your favorite local craft store, along with some spray adhesive and some fall leaves that you love, and in a short time, you’ll have one spectacular “wreath” for your door.
- Burlap Pumpkin Wreath: When it comes to fall, your mind might automatically think of pumpkins. If that’s the case, then this wreath will fit right in with your ideas for fall decor. This DIY pumpkin is probably a step or two above the beginner crafting level, but the instructions are excellent – so don’t hesitate to try it.
- Indian Corn Wreath: If you have a glue gun, straw wreath, and mini Indian corn, then you have what it takes to make this stunning wreath. This one is a showstopper – and super easy to assemble.
- Corn Husk Wreath: This is another simple wreath that is quite gorgeous. You can pick up the supplies (dried corn husks, a straw wreath, u-pins, dried flowers, and ribbon) from a craft store and get started. Keep in mind that you can customize the dried flowers to fit your color scheme – so choose something you love!
- Wheat Wreath: If you’ve been to a craft show and seen wheat wreaths for sale, you know that they are quite expensive. But once you learn to do it yourself, you’ll never think of buying one again – and save a ton of money.
- Acorn Wreath: Acorns are a quintessential fall element, and this wreath uses acorns you purchase at the craft store to make a fantastic door wreath. The simple color scheme is perfect for those who do not want to bring gold, red, or orange into the picture.
- Pinecone Wreath: Pinecones are another great piece of nature to use in your wreaths. This wreath is great because, with a few simple additions, you can take it right into the winter season. And be sure to check out the directions for bleaching pinecones – which creates a very unique look.
- Fall Ribbon Wreath: Ribbon wreaths are easy to make – and this one is no exception. In fact, you might even have the kids make some mini wreaths to use around candles or on the table.
This year don’t buy a fall wreath for your door – make one! Test out your crafting skills with one of these DIYs – and bring a little bit of autumn to your home.
