While shopping at Michael’s Craft store the other day, I picked up a few fall berry and floral stems that were on sale for $1 each! Since I had already bought a natural twig wreath at a yard sale about a month ago for $0.50, I thought, how could I pass up an opportunity to make a $5 fall wreath?!?
OK, so maybe you may not have the same luck that I did, but you can still create the same look for about $15.
Here’s what you need:
- natural, twig wreath (available at your local craft store for about $3-4, depending on the size)
- fall accent berries or floral stems (maybe 4 stems total, about $2 each)
- orange or brown ribbon (about $2 for a roll)
And the best part is, I didn’t use any glue, so I can reuse the wreath again and again!
1. Play with the placement of the berry and floral stems by draping them along the wreath. I chose to do the berry stems diagonally, on either side of the wreath. I then used the flowers to fill in the negative areas.
2. Once you have the placement you want, weave the berry stems through twig wreath (don’t glue unless you want them to be permanent). Place a few berry branches under wreath twigs so that the berry stem doesn’t stand off the wreath so much.
3. Next, cut the flowers off of the large stems about 2″ down so they you have room to place them down in the wreath. See picture below.
5. Finally, weave the ribbon inside the back of the wreath, and tie at the top in a bow. (Again, don’t use glue here unless you want it to be permanent.) See picture below.
Here are a few other DIY Fall Wreath ideas for the season.
Love this one! Very similar to the one I shared with you above, including instructions from Carter & Cook.
This one is also super cute and easy. Martha Stewart’s cornhusk wreath How To from The Nester.
Or this How To yarn wreath from Sunshine & Carousels?
Want something a little darker, for Halloween maybe? Try this DIY ribbon wreath from Casa Sugar. (If you want a fall look, use orange or brown ribbon instead.)
And finally, try this spooky twig wreath tutorial from Woman’s Day.
Enjoy until next time,
