Love wreaths for fall? Here’s a DIY fall wreath you can make in an afternoon with personalized colors.
My home is very earth inspired, think bohemian, meets modern-farmhouse minimalist. That’s a mouthful. Even when it comes to my decor choices I opt for things that aren’t too busy. We have a lot of neutral tones and use green (in the form of plants) as our pops of color. I recently laid an old crimson throw at the end of our bed, color me shocked that it looks like it just belongs! Anyway, I loved a lot of the wreaths I was seeing in stores but not the price tag. We customized a Christmas wreath a few years back, it’s stunning. We hand selected everything and someone else put it together for us. Right then I knew, I could do this too. It took me a few years to get around to it but I love how this turned out and in the color palette that matched our interior decor. I’ve created a video to go along with this post (click to watch video) and I’ll also insert it at the end of today’s post.
I hand-selected each item at my local craft store. Here is what I started with:
Florals, grasses, berries & succulents..
I wanted to create something that showed off the woven detail in the wreath form and the arrangement. I selected about 2-3 handfuls of individualized florals, grasses, berries and pumpkins in my neutral color palette.
Next I paired the foliage together using floral tape.
I began laying my selections on the form to see where they looked best and then secured each grouping together with floral tape. I used my hot-glue gun to secure the top of the stem and inter-wove the stem base into the wreathe itself. As I mentioned in my video (here) it’s probably over-kill to use both hot-glue and woven pieces but I wanted to be able to use the wreath for years to come and insure it’s stability.
I love that I was able to not only find white pumpkins, but a succulent as those are staples in quite a few rooms in my home. My daughter also found a scarecrow gal, she’s cute! She’s currently holding her pretending she’s doing laundry with her Daddy so I’m glad I opted not to hot-glue the scarecrow down.
I opted to display my wreath on an interior door. I love looking at the wreaths. Christmas last year we displayed one outside and our customized wreathe inside, and I loved that. I’m a HUGE Christmas fan so I’m sure you’ll find plenty of crafts here on kellysvida.com and posts come that time!
Have you ever made a wreath?This was a first for me and it’s so fun to create it exactly how you want.
