Hello and welcome back! It’s here, it’s here! Well, almost. Tomorrow is the first official day of fall! Who else is as excited as I am? I think I heard some screams of excitement out there somewhere. My fall decorating is in full swing over here. Despite the fact it is currently 90 degrees outside, I have a pumpkin spice candle here burning strong. To kick off my absolute favorite season, I wanted to share a super easy fall DIY!
You guys already know I’m an avid DIY-er, especially when it comes to home decor. I love people’s reactions when they ask me where I got something and I tell them I made it myself. I love it even more when I tell them how much I spent making it.
I made this fall wreath for less than $15. In case you didn’t know, Joann Fabric is my favorite craft store. They are currently having an awesome sale on fall decor and as always, I have their coupons handy.
Here is what you will need to make your own DIY Fall Wreath:
- Wreath (Grapevine wreath from Joann on sale for $2.99)
- Fall leaves, flowers, and greenery (All on sale from Joann for 50% off)
- Burlap ribbon (I had leftover from a previous project)
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Sharp scissors
- Puppy assistant (optional)
The first thing I did was cut the different floral sections into individual pieces so they would be easier to work with.
I decided only wanted the right side of the wreath to have the floral arrangement. I started with the greenery and stuck two pieces in the wreath facing the opposite directions. Once they were positioned where I liked them I secured them with hot glue. Next, I added the maple leaf sections on top of the greenery and moved them around until I had my desired look. I took individual sunflowers and stuck them toward the middle of the floral arrangement.
The bow is optional, but I felt like my wreath needed a little something extra. I had some leftover burlap from another project. Instead of tying a big bow, I decided to cheat and hot glue the pieces of burlap together to make my bow. I cut one big piece for the loops, a short and skinny piece for the knot, and cut up the burlap length-wise to create the two end pieces.
Fold the long piece of burlap so that the two ends meet in the middle, gather the whole piece in the middle and hot glue it to secure it.
Once the glue is dry, the bow should look like this:
Next, wrap the short and skinny piece of burlap around the bow and hot glue it to create the knot. Then, hot glue the last two strips of burlap to the back of the bow to create the ends.
Once the bow has been assembled, glue it to the wreath. I decided to place my bow on the bottom of the wreath, but I think it would be really cute on the top too. Once your bow has been glued, you are ready to hang your wreath!
Let me know what you guys think in the comments. Be sure to stay tuned, I have more DIY Fall Decor planned for the very near future!
Until next time, Happy Fall, Y’all!
