Live Pretty on a Penny: Easy Fall Wreath DIY Tutorial

Easy Fall Wreath DIY Tutorial

Friday, October 5, 2012


Even though Summer and Spring are still my absolute most favorite time of the year, Fall colors and even smells (pumpkin spice, anyone?) really inspire me.  Knowing that I wanted to bring the spirit of Fall into my home, I decided to create a simple door wreath that not only inspires me, but anyone who enters my home.  This wreath took less than an hour to create, so it's the perfect quick, inexpensive weekend project. It's fully customizable as well, so whatever flair you choose to add will work:)

Here is what you will need:

Hot Glue Gun
Fall Floral (40% off at Hobby Lobby)- I used the rust and red colored Baby's Breath. I bought one of each stem, for a total of two ($10 for both)
Craft Wreath- I used a branch wreath from Hobby Lobby ($2.99 with 40% off coupon)
Monogrammed MDF Wood Letter- Of course, we used a letter "M"($3.49 SPLURGE)
Floral Stem Wire Clipper 
Wreath Hanger (used mine from Christmas $1.00)

First, lay out your wreath on a large plastic bag. Just ask Hobby Lobby to put your wreath in a large bag, and you can lay it out on that.


Next, lay out your flowers and clip each stem that you are ready to place. I bent my flower at the cut stem so that it would be easier to place in between the branches on the wreath. I placed them where I wanted them to lay. There is no specific order in which this must be done, but it just needs to look full and balanced. You can play around with the flowers as you place them, since they have the wire inside.




 Once the flowers are placed, I took my glue gun and attached them properly, placing the glue on the tip of the floral stem.



Once everything was glued down, including the "M," that's it! See! E.A.S.Y for about $16.00:) Lets take another look...


And that's it. A simple DIY Fall Wreath. I am super happy with how it turned out. 

How have you decided to bring Fall into your home?

Have a great weekend!
