DIY Fall Wreath

Posted by Lisa on September 17th, 2012

Hi kids!  We hope you had a great weekend – we sure did.  We kept the projects minimal and got to spend some great family time together.  I am not sure about you guys, but the weather here has been beautiful!  Fall is definitely in the air and we are so happy about it!

One of the projects I was able to was able to wrap up this weekend was a DIY Fall wreath for the inside of our front entry door.  If you remember, we recently painted the inside of our front door black, and I couldn’t wait to decorate it for Fall.

This is my first attempt at making a wreath from scratch.  I was able to get all the supplies from local fabric and hobby stores.

I started with a basic hay wreath.hay-wreath-1024x682


I decided to wrap the hay wreath with this awesome burlap wired ribbon.  Since it is wired, it was relatively easy to wrap around the wreath and keep it in place.



I glued the last bit of ribbon to the back of the wreath with hot glue.



I also purchased an orange and burgundy berry garland to add to the wreath.  I carefully untwisted each strand so at the end, I have about ten single berry strands.

I kept the main strand that the smaller berry strands were attached to so I could use it to adhere each strand to the wreath.  Catch my drift? This way I wouldn’t have to hot glue anything else, and I could always remove the berries to add something different.wire-on-wreath-1024x682


After the wreath was completed, I used orange wired ribbon to hang the wreath on the door.  I added a fancy silver command hook to the very top of the door (let’s hope it actually removes cleanly from the door – I wouldn’t want to have touch ups), and hung the wreath from there.

Here it is with the black door.



It’s tough taking a photo of anything against that door!!  I think it’s time to read a how-to book on our SLR.

Are you adding any wreaths to your home this Fall?

    I really like it! I didn't know they made burlap ribbon- might have to get some of that! I love the bright berry colours- I want to add some of those to a wreath for sure!

  • Gorgeous! If I knew they made burlap ribbon I may have used that for my fall wreath!

    I like that you're wreath is not overdone. Sometimes less is more, right?

  • I love it the wreath, and the orange ribbon you used to hang it! Very festive 🙂

  • I love your fall wreath! I like that it's simple and classy!
