DIY Fall Wreath
HOW TO MAKE AN EXPENSIVE LOOKING DESIGNER WREATH ON A DIY BUDGET. USE THESE TIPS & TRICKS TO CREATE A DESIGNER ESQUE WREATH FOR FALL OR ANY SEASON
Y’all, I am all about some front door decor. The UPS delivery guy visits it pretty frequently so I try to change it up often for him & our other visitors. Its the first thing people see when visiting your home, so a stylish front porch makes a big impact & it doesn’t have to be expensive to do!
The first thing I like to do is change out the wreath to match the season or holiday. Since I have been seeing pumpkin spice coffee sneak back out on the shelves I decided it was time to start my fall wreath! I love fall most of all because the colors are beautiful & crisp.
Heres the tips & tricks I use to make an expensive-looking fall wreath on a DIY budget:

- 24″ Wreath (this is a really great size for front doors)
- Flower Bundles
- Greenery Bundles
- Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue Gun
- Florist Wire
- The first rule is to obviously start with a trip to Michaels to buy bundles of flowers. I don’t usually buy individual stems unless I need a few specific pieces because they are more expensive when they are sold individually. I like to get a couple of different bundles all in the same color family, plus a bundle of greens that are appropriate for the season.
2. I separate the flowers in the bundle & cut them into individual stems if they aren’t already.
TIP-I like to use wire cutters to cut my stems because they slice through like butter & I have broken enough scissors to know better.
3. Next, I start adding my different stems & greenery around the wreath. I don’t start gluing or tying anything down permanently until I’m happy with the “rough draft.”
Tip- Make sure your wreath is nice & full, thats one of the main keys to an expensive looking wreath. Better to fill a smaller section with flowers than to cover the whole wreath & leave gaps.
4. After I play around with the layout for a while, my version of therapy, I get ready to glue. I use my hot glue gun to secure each stem.
Tip- I like to use the florist wire to position each flower to face the way I want & give it that extra security.
That’s it! A beautiful expensive looking wreath for under $30! I am loving the purples for this fall & I can’t wait to start on the inside of the house!
Next on my list to freshen up the front porch will be to change out my front door rug combinations. If you arent into channeling your inner craft queen right now you can always check out my favorite fall wreaths that are super budget-friendly from Amazon!
