WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THE FALL WREATH
There is not a long or complicated list of materials to make this wreath. That’s what makes this wreath so easy to create!
Just a note about the materials. I use my grapevine wreaths over and over again! After the season I take all the seasonal decor off of the wreaths and store it away for later.
Then the grapevine wreaths is ready for the next seasonal wreath I make.
This is a very economical way to make wreaths for each season.
Here’s what you will need…
- 2 grapevine wreaths (See my GRAPEVINE WREATHS HERE)
- 4-6 stems of faux fall leaves (see my FAUX LEAVES HERE)
- wire or zip ties (see the ZIP TIES HERE)
- scissors and/or wire cutters (see my HEAVY DUTY SCISSORS HERE and my WIRE CUTTERS HERE)
THE FALL WREATH DIY
BEST WREATH MAKING TIP EVER!
Ready for the best wreath making tip ever? Okay here it is…
Wire or zip tie two grapevine wreath together in three places on the wreath. I usually wire them even distances apart.
Can you see where I wired these wreaths together? I used green florist’s wire. That was soooo long ago. This wreath has seen many seasons and many kinds of decor!
I think I’ll zip tie them when fall is over.
I know wiring two wreaths together sounds way too easy, but what a HUGE difference it will make!
This is a designer tip! Wiring two wreaths together will give your wreath a beautiful full look and also give it heft! It will have a “presence”. Seriously, give it a try!
ADD THE LEAVES
This is so so easy!
I simply laid the leaves (with their long stems on) around the wreath and when they looked nice I zip tied them onto the wreath.
I did this in about 5 minutes!
Just remember to cut the ends of the zip ties and hide the ties holding the leaves onto the wreath.
IT’S ALL ABOUT FLUFFING A WREATH
Fluffing is my word for taking the time to make sure all the faux elements look amazing! Separate the leaves, fill in the empty spots on the wreath that may not have enough leaves. And generally give the wreath a big once-over!
So, when I hung my wreath on our front door I “fluffed” all the leaves around the wreath to make them look full! But I kept it a little imperfect.
This is such an easy fall wreath diy, right? And it’s such a pretty, attention-grabbing wreath too!
I like my wreath just like it is. Natural!
But you can add other things to this fall wreath.
Here are a few thing you can use to embellish your wreath with…
- a big bow
- groups of acorns or pinecones
- a second kind off fall leaves
- cut out words, like ” it’s fall”
- any other fall-ish thing
Either wire them on or use hot glue to fix them to the wreath.
HOW TO HANG A WREATH ON YOUR DOOR
I get asked all the time how I hang my wreaths on my front door.
I just got so tired of trying to hang wreaths up with ribbon or invisible fishing line or even an over the door hanger that scratched the door!
So, I put a hook right in the door.
I’m not sure what kind of hook this is. I think we got it for our bathrobes in the bathroom but used a different one. So this went in the odds and ends box. And that’s where found it!
Oh, it works so perfectly!
I hope you will make this pretty fall leaf wreath for your front door!
