DIY Autumn Wreath

Goodbye summer, hello fall! Autumn is nearly here and it brings so many reasons to celebrate… spiced cider, harvest festivals, crisp and colorful leaves, pumpkin pie… the list goes on and on. To get your home fall-ready, we’re bringing you an ultra chic and ultra easy DIY project. And we promise, it’s easier than it appears.

What You’ll Need

  • Foam ring (we went with a medium size)
  • 1 ball of yarn
  • Festive fall embellishments
  • Glue gun

Step 1: Wrap It Up

This part is easy, but time consuming. Start by tying a small knot around the ring with your yarn. Then, settle in, because you’ll be wrapping for a bit. Wrap tightly so the ring doesn’t show through… and continue until the entire ring is covered. Once you’re at the end, tie another knot, cut it loose and tuck in the excess yarn.

Step 2: Gather Your Embellishments

Leaves, fruit, pine cones… you can adorn your wreath with whatever you see fit for the season. We found this fun foliage at our local craft store and picked the pine cones from our office’s parking lot!

Step 3: Create Your Arrangement and Get Gluing

Like arranging flowers, start with a base for your embellishments and build your way out. It may be helpful to lay out your arrangement before you begin to glue, so you’re sure to have the right balance of colors and textures. Then, use your glue gun to secure everything to the wreath. Tip: try to avoid gluing all parts of the embellishment down to the wreath so you keep some depth to your design.

Step 4: Enjoy!

Dig out your holiday wreath hook a little early and enjoy your beautiful new fall decor!

    I can’t wait to try this on my own, I’ve seen adorable wreaths like this on Etsy! What kind of glue did you use? Also, did you make any sort of loop for easy hanging? Thanks!!

    I’m going to try this too. Hope I can make one just as nice. I also agree with, Emily.. I have seen these on Etsy and can’t wait to have my own!

    Hi Emily! We used a glue gun and the standard glue sticks that go with it. We opted to not make a loop and used a holiday wreath hook for hanging instead, but you can always make a simple ribbon loop for added flair!
