DIY Woodsy Fall Wreath

TIDBITS&TWINE-How-to-Make-a-Fall-Wreath

 

With the first day of Autumn just around the corner, I decided I’d better update my front door wreath before I miss my window of opportunity and find myself in Halloween territory!   Each season, I take the same bare twig wreath and just wire on different elements to create different looks.  This way, it saves me money, plus I don’t have to deal with storing multiple wreaths.  Win-win!

Last year, my Fall wreath was a mixture of greens and rusts.  It was a bit nontraditional, but still in the Fall color family.

This year, since it’s still 80 degrees where I live, I don’t quite yet feel in the mood for Fall reds, yellows, and oranges.  Instead, I decided to go with natural elements using twigs, pinecones, and greenery…plus a pumpkin or two.  I unwired everything that was on my Spring wreath except the pussy willow, since it works for Fall as well.

I started by wiring on all of the greenery.  I didn’t cut any of the stems so that I have the option to use them in floral arrangements and greenery displays once I’m no longer using them on the wreath.

I then decided to add the burlap bow back onto the wreath.  It’s been in use for a year now and I think it’s holding up really well!  To learn how to make a fancy bow, you can check out my step-by-step tutorial {here}.

Lastly, I wired some pumpkins to the bottom and attached pinecones throughout to finish it up.  At this point, everything was loosely wired on to the bare twig wreath, but I didn’t fully arrange each item until it was hung on the door.

I added a little “Happy Fall” sign underneath the burlap bow at the top.

I haven’t yet pulled all of my Fall decor boxes out of the garage, but I did manage to reach my box of pumpkins and gourds, so I added a few to the porch.

With my wreath done, I’m on my way to accepting that Summer is over and Fall is on its way.

    I really like your Fall wreath, Kim! We don’t really get a “typical” Fall here in the AZ desert, so it’s pretty much “Faux Fall” all the way! You have to look on the bright side of this situation which is, as long as you have to do “Faux,” you can do it as early as you want. So, my inside decorating is all finished (well, you know as a blogger, there will be tweaking), but I haven’t put anything outside yet. We are still having triple digit temps, and anything I put together with hot glue, simply would not stay together. Soon, I hope to add some color and fun to the front entry. In the meantime, I’m just enjoying seeing what others, such as yourself, are doing! Loved visiting!
