Fall is a glorious time to create a wreath for your door to help celebrate the season. Luckily, it’s not that hard to create wreaths. Most items you can buy at Walmart, on Amazon, or at any local craft store. Below is a round-up of awesome fall do-it-yourself wreath ideas that don’t require a lot of skill to be successful.
Rustic DIY Fall Wreath
This fall wreath idea is beautiful in its simplicity and shows that with just a few well-placed items you can bring the spirit of fall to everyone who crosses your threshold.
All you need is a grapevine wreath form, vine, burlap ribbon, floral wire, pinecones (which you can get outside), a tag and a hot glue gun, and you’re on your way to making this simple wreath that is also beautiful to look at. It would make a great gift.
Punch Fabric Wreath
All you need for this is a straw wreath form that is covered in plastic, and about four yards of fabric cut into four-inch squares. You can use pinking shears to make different types of cuts and get frames in all shapes and sizes.
After the fabric is cut, use a Phillips-head screwdriver to carefully punch the fabric into the wreath form until it looks full and rich from the front. Add ribbon, and you have a beautiful fall punch fabric wreath.
Not much says fall like red delicious apples. Use this example as your guide, but use your imagination to make it your own.
This calls for Styrofoam wreath forms, burlap strips, fake apples, moss, and hot glue gun and sticks. All you do is cover the form with the burlap and then hot glue the apples to the form. It’s that simple, yet beautiful.
One idea might be to use salt dough instead of cookies to make this wreath, so that it can last longer and be used again.
Whether you choose to color the dough or paint it, is up to you. But you simply make the cookies, form into a wreath using a cardboard wreath form, and either use frosting or a glue gun (if you use the salt dough) to connect the leaves to the form.
Monogram Fall Wreath
This is perfect for your front door or as a gift to someone else. You need a grapevine wreath form, burlap rosettes, your initial form, paint and a few more things to make this gorgeous sunflower fall monogram wreath for your front door. There really isn’t much to this wreath, but it looks great hung on an interior door.
This pinecone wreath idea is genius. Use paint, pinecones you find outside (or buy at a craft store), a pool noodle, or another type of base to get started. If you can stick the pinecones to the form, that’s all you need. It’s a super-simple project that anyone can do if you can follow the directions.
You’ll get something unique that other people might not have thought of before, while using what you have available.
Making fall wreaths is fun. They make great décor pieces as well as gifts for everyone in your family. You might even be able to make them for a fundraiser for your group or organization, just in time for the fall craft sale seasons.
