Easy DIY: Fall Wreath Tutorial



Hello friends! We have been busy working on our new house in Tampa and today I’m so excited to finally give you a sneak peek of the newly painted front porch - all decked out for Fall.


I am keeping the decor on this porch simple - mostly because we are still doing work here and I don’t want to have the decorations get in the way of the workers who are coming in and out. I added a new rug, a few pumpkins, and made a simple wreath.


This wreath was so easy to put together so I thought I would share it with you!



Supplies:

I am using a grapevine wreath that I had on hand and added faux greenery: ferns, eucalyptus, dried grasses, yellow/red flowers. All of these are from Michaels. (You can even purchase a grapevine wreath there as well!) You will also want to grab wire and wire cutters.


Note: I used fabric covered wire - which is a bit sturdier than regular wire.


Step One:

  • Lay everything out and begin to cut the stems (using your wire cutters) so that they can be tucked into the wreath. I left about 4” -5” of length on my stems.



  • Begin to tuck the stems into the wreath. I started with the greenery and then added the flowers. I used faux ferns and eucalyptus as greenery.



  • Keep working your way around the wreath.

  • I did two sections: the first section with stems going upwards and the second section with stems going downwards, both focused on keeping stems to the right side of the wreath.



  • Begin to tuck floral stems into the greenery that you’ve already added.



  • Use your wire cutters and cut wire pieces 8” - 10” long. (I used three pieces)

  • Then secure stems in place with wire - going around the wreath. I tried to go behind the flowers/greenery so the wire doesn’t show but you really don’t have to worry about that because it won’t be obvious.



Do you notice how I tied the wire in the back of the stems? That way you really don’t see the wire from the front of the wreath. Enjoy your beautiful new wreath!



Here are a few pictures of the wreath styled on my new porch!



Okay, so right when I was about to publish this post, my hubby told me I had to move the decor! I guess the workers needed to use the front door so I brought everything to our Clearwater, FL Airbnb where we’re staying now. Can you tell that I’m a bit anxious to get this new house decorated?



Thanks for stopping by, friends! I hope you’re enjoying the Fall season - wherever you live!
