New Fall Wreath

Hi there sweet friends! Is it still steamy where you are right now? As I am writing this it is 94 ° outside.  Nevertheless I am forging onward…with a brand spankin new Fall wreath!  I mean it has to cool down soon, right?

Here she is:

I decided to abandon the oranges and yellows this year in favor of a more subtle palette. What do you think?

Of course because I love ya’ll so much, I’m going to share how EASY this is to make.

First you’ll need these (All of my supplies came from Michaels.):

What you'll need for a fall wreath

  • Grapevine wreath
  • Pieces from another grapevine wreath for depth (totally optional)
  • Three fun additions to create a focal point. (I used two different flowers and an ivory pumpkin)
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Floral wire (not shown)
  • Needle nose pliers/cutters (not shown)

And some of these:

These are the stems I used. I ended up not using the ones on the far right.

Start with your extra grapevine wreath and pull/cut off a piece like you see here:

Then attach it to the front of the full wreath to add a bit of dimension. I just tucked it in and secured it with hot glue. See how it adds a bit of depth?

Then I tucked my furry friends in first:

(You can glue all the stems in place or just tuck them in if they feel secured in place.)

Followed by the squiggly branchy ones which I cut apart…

Next I added a couple of the ivory berry pieces:

Then I hot glued the two flowers and little pumpkin in place.

To add a bit more texture, I cut two pieces of printed burlap:

…squeezed the ends together like this:

And tucked in place with hot glue:

That’s it. Pretty simple!

I am loving the muted greens this year with the pop of ivory…

Of course I did break down and buy some regular pumpkins. Can I tell you how hard that was when I was sweating my tooti off?

And Fall wouldn’t be Fall without Mums…

This little ladder was another Lucketts find from last year.

Can you see my window boxes got an update too?

Fall Front Porch and Wreath Turorial

I had those grass liners filled  with white Geraniums for Summer, but when I tried to remove the plants, the roots had grown into the grass liner and pulled it out in chunks. It basically had dry rotted anyway, so I found another solution. Add three pots to my boxes instead.

  14. Wow! I love your fall wreath! I usually leave out the orange in our fall decor too. Great tip to tuck in the ends of burlap. I would have been trying to tie a bow and then add stuff to the knot bump! What a great welcome to your home! ~Jeanette

    It’s weird to decorate for fall when it’s hot outside isn’t it? Your wreath looks beautiful. Love the colors you chose–very pretty!
    Catherine

  17. Love!

  18. I was hoping that you would share one of your beautiful wreaths for fall. I love how you used neutrals for this instead of the usually orange. I also appreciate the step-by-step instructions that you supply. Awesome job!

  19. As always you rocked it girlfriend! I love your wreath and tutorial. All of your touches for your front entry look beautiful together. You’re right…whats fall without mums?

  26. Gorgeous! I mean seriously beautiful! I’m so envious of your pretty door and that stonework!!! Oh my! -PS. We need to get together sometime soon for coffee or drinks girlfriend! (pinning)

  27. Love your wreath! Love that you went with neutral colors. I’m featuring your gorgeous wreath in my Friday Features this week. Thanks for linking up to Inspire Me Monday.

  28. I am so glad you commented on my blog because this wreath tutorial is just what I needed! A bird built her nest and laid eggs (awe, cute), then pooped all over the new $50 wreath I hung up earlier this year (less cute). I had to take it down but I kept it because I knew I could take it apart and re-purpose the non-pooped on parts 🙂 and now I know how! Also, I subscribed because your blog looks AWESOME!

    • Oh no to the poopy bird, but yay…you feel inspired! SO awesome to have you following along! The Harlequin is one of my favorite patterns and I am doing a grey and white harlequin pattern on a bench right now. That’s what drew me to your gorgeous floor. You’ll see it early next week 🙂

  29. Your wreath is absolutely gorgeous, Christy. I love that it’s not the usual fall wreath. Perfect! I’m so happy to have been a part of the Fall Home Decor Tour with you!

  30. Your wreath is beautiful! I love the colors you used for it and how it looks against your door, you did a fantastic job!

  40. Miss Chris…every wreath that you do is so amazing! I love the neutral look….I am trying to tone mine down this year, although it is hard because I do love all of those beautiful jewel tones. I am so excited to be back to see all of your fabulous ideas!
    Hugs,
    JP

  41. I love making wreaths and this one is so pretty!! Love how Fall it looks without the orange and yellow!!

  42. You really made a gorgeous wreath, and thank you for showing the step by step photos. It really looks a lot less complicated to put together. Your fall decor is so beautiful.

  43. Your entire porch looks so inviting. I love that you chose greens in your fall wreath rather than the typical orange we are so used to seeing. It looks beautiful hanging against your wood door!

  44. what exactly do you glue?

    • Great question, Taylor. I updated the post to be more clear on that. My stems were tucked in pretty securely, so I didn’t need to add glue, but I glued the two flowers and the pumpkin as well as the burlap pieces. You may want to add a bit of glue to the ends of yours stems before tucking them if they don’t feel secure. Hope that helps!

  45. Hi there! Thanks for sharing this tutorial. I noticed you said floral wire is needed but it isn’t referenced throughout the tutorial. At which step is it needed?

    Thank you!
