DIY Fall Wreath
Step-by-step guide on creating a beautiful DIY fall wreath at home
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 and our other visitors.
It’s the first thing people see when visiting your home, so a stylish front porch makes a big impact and 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 onto the shelves I decided it was time to start my fall wreath!
I love fall most of all because the colors are beautiful and crisp, plus this Alabama heat becomes more manageable.
In case you are also ready to get your front porch fall ready I thought I’d share one of my most favorite wreath DIY’s.

Wreath Ideas for Fall
1. Choosing Florals, Greenery, and Color Palette
The first step is to choose your stems, greenery, and color palette.
I am a huge fan of these flower bundles from Amazon, they look and feel very real and aren’t super expensive.
After I choose my floral color scheme I get a few greenery bundles to create the filler on the wreath.
2. Prepare the Fall Stems
First, separate the flowers in the bundle and cut them into individual stems if they aren’t already.
TIP: I like to use electrical wire cutters to cut my stems because they slice through the wire like butter and I have broken enough kitchen scissors to know better.
If your stems have leaves that are a little too fake looking feel free to cut those off too.
3. Attaching the Stems to the Wreath
Next, I start adding my different stems and greenery around the wreath
I don’t start gluing or tying anything down permanently until I’m happy with the “rough draft.”
Make sure your wreath is nice and full, thats one of the main keys to an expensive looking wreath.
There are a few DIY wreath arrangement options; covering just the bottom or one of the sides with flowers and greenery is a great way to create a full looking wreath with fewer supplies.
If you choose to fill the entire wreath just be sure not to leave any gaps.
After I play around with the layout for a while (my version of therapy) I get ready to glue.
Use a hot glue gun to secure each stem to the wreath and florist wire to better position each flower plus provide extra security.
