Easiest Fall Wreath Ever!

Last night the temperature dove into the 40’s. In just a few days it will be back up in the 80’s. The Fall season in Chicagoland is often unpredictable. It might be snowing on Halloween … or it might be mildly warm. But one thing you can always count on is the beautiful colors of the trees as the leaves change. Shorter days signal the time to start decorating in warm colors and one of the first things I do is plant a few mums and swap out the front door adornment. This year, I made the easiest Fall wreath ever as I join a few fellow bloggers for Hospitality Filled Homes!

Easy Fall Wreath You Can Make in Minutes

This year I wanted a natural looking wreath, something with burnt orange berries that resemble bittersweet. I love the look of bittersweet, but it’s a little overpriced so I don’t typically buy it.

 

Easy Fall Wreath You Can Make in MinutesI found floral sprigs at the craft store that have a natural look to them and knew they’d made a great looking natural wreath for my front door.

 

DIY Fall Wreath - SuppliesAll you need to create this simple Fall wreath is a grapevine wreath, several floral sprigs, and a hot glue gun.

 

DIY Fall Wreath - SuppliesTake the stem of your floral spray and carefully insert it into the loose weave of the grapevine wreath. You might find that the stem pokes back out of the grapevine wreath on another side.

 

DIY Fall WreathNo biggie!  Simply bend the protruding stem and tuck its end back into the wreath.

It blends right in!

Easiest DIY Fall Wreath Ever!Keep working your way around the grapevine wreath, attaching the floral sprays until the wreath is filled. You could also attach just one floral spray and leave the rest of the grapevine wreath exposed. That’s what I love about working with grapevine wreaths … they’re both functional and pretty.

Easiest DIY Fall Wreath Ever!While I was at the store buying supplies, I checked out the prices of the already made wreaths and was happy to see I’d saved half the price by doing it myself!
