DIY Fall Wreath

A few years back, on my old blog, I shared a Fall DIY wreath that ended up being featured on Michael’s Pinterest page; so I was pretty proud of myself at the time.This year, I decided I would make two new wreaths, because my hunt for ones I loved, left me empty-handed.

I actually took off all the decor from my old wreath so I could reuse it, and then just picked up another one from Michaels.

They are just basic 18” wreaths and are under $8.

The faux flowers and greenery I used for the wreaths were all purchased from Michaels. They can be expensive so watch for sales or use their weekly coupons. I lucked out and got all of mine when they had a “buy one get one free” sale on all of their faux fall arrangements.

I also find it easier to shop if you have a colour palette in mind. For me, I wanted to stick with green, white and peachy tones with some subtle hues of burgundy or deep purple. Pinterest is a great place to start to get some inspiration if you’re unsure. So, with that palette in mind I grabbed different types of flowers, some individual and a couple bouquets. I always purchase more than I need so I can play around, and then return what I don’t use afterwards.

I brought everything home and laid everything out, so I could get a clear visual of what I had to work with, and just started to play around. It took me about a half an hour of re-arranging and adding/removing flowers before my vision came to life.

Depending on the type of flowers you chose, and the length of the stems, you can weave them through the wreath itself, without having to glue anything. If you have smaller flowers or blossoms that don’t have stems, you can just use a glue gun and glue them on. For these wreaths, I was able to just weave everything through without having to use a glue gun.

That’s all there is to it! It’s much more affordable to make your own and you get exactly what you’re looking for. You can also change it up, or add to it year to year if your taste changes.

I hope this brought you a little fall inspiration!
