Don’t you just love autumn? It’s seriously my favorite time of the year – aside from Christmas, that is. I love the crisp cool air, the colors and of course, the DIY projects that abound! There are so many wonderful things to make during the cooler weather and I just can’t wait to get started! On that note, I thought it would be cool to share some DIY fall wreaths with you. I’ve found 40 of the most spectacular wreaths that you can very easily make yourself and give your front door a wonderfully welcoming fall look.
Fall seriously is a wonderful time to do DIY projects. It’s not too hot so you can easily do many of these outdoors. Plus, there are so many beautiful colors to work with. Whether you want something that gives a harvest look to the porch or you prefer more of an elegant wreath, I’ve got you covered. There is a wreath that you can make that will perfectly match any outdoor décor you may have going on. From wheat and corn husks to gorgeous acorns and walnuts, you can use things that you find outside to make a beautiful new wreath. And, you should also check out these 60 fall décor projects to decorate your interior.
I love the thought of repurposing or upcycling items to make a wreath and many of these use upcycled materials. There is a great cardboard wreath form that you can upcycle from any empty box and you can use acorns, pinecones, twigs and any number of other things from outdoors to make your wreaths decorative. So, if you have certain supplies on hand, these won’t cost you anything to make. Of course, there is burlap involved in many of them as well. You just can’t decorate for fall without burlap! You also can’t decorate for fall without gorgeous leaves and on that note, be sure to check out these 15 DIY leaf crafts for kids.
So, let’s start making wreaths! These are all so simple, so cheap and would make wonderful gifts if you know someone with a birthday, anniversary or wedding coming up in the next few months. I hope you enjoy these easy fall wreath crafts and I hope you’ll share which one is gracing your front door this fall.
1. Gorgeous DIY Acorn Wreath
Nothing quite says fall like acorns…at least for the squirrels, that is. This gorgeous acorn wreath is so simple to make and will perfectly welcome autumn to your home. Note that if you don’t have a lot of acorns in your yard, you can also use hazelnuts or other similar nuts to make this. You just line them up around a foam wreath form, glue them down and then add any embellishments that you want.
2. Elegant Gold Thumbtack Wreath
This golden wreath is made from thumbtacks and it’s just as easy as you would expect it to be. The color is just perfect for fall and this is a really inexpensive wreath to make. You’ll need one, maybe two, packages of gold thumbtacks, which you can pick up at the Dollar Store for about a dollar each. Then just push those tacks through a foam wreath form and add your hanger.
3. DIY Autumn Fabric Wreath
If you have a stack of unused fabric swatches, this is the perfect time to put them to use. You don’t even need a wreath form for this one. You can use a metal clothes hanger. Just bend it into a circular shape and then tie your fabric strips to it until you get the thickness and design that you want. If you have quite a bit of fabric, you could make one of these for every season. Just change up your colors a bit.
4. DIY Fall Rosette Wreath
This fabric wreath is so easy to make and it’s really inexpensive, too. You just need your fabric, a Styrofoam wreath form and then whatever you want to embellish it with such as pinecones, acorns, or any other natural fall pieces. Just wrap fabric around the wreath form and use another color to create your fabric rosettes. Then decorate with acorns, pinecones or any other fall themed items.
5. Burlap And Flower Fall Wreath
I love burlap for fall decorating – I love burlap for any decorating, actually, but especially for fall. To that end, this burlap and flower wreath is so easy to put together and will instantly dress up your door for the new season. This one has a great sunflower look, which you can give it with a darker center or you could even add hints of red or green to work with the Christmas season.
6. DIY Burlap And Lace Fall Wreath
Burlap also works really well with lace when it comes to fall decoration. That’s why I love this burlap and lace wreath. Not only is it really easy – not to mention inexpensive – to make, it’s just gorgeous and perfect for fall. Just wrap a wreath form with burlap and then add lace elements. You can even add fall colored fabric flowers, leaves, or anything else to decorate it.
7. Easy $10 Burlap Rosette Wreath
This burlap wreath can be made for $10 or less and it’s one of the easiest ones to make. Burlap rosettes are so easy to make. You just roll them up and glue them onto a grapevine wreath form. You can add mini pumpkins or any other fall decorations. This one is so cheap and you can have it completely finished in under an hour!
8. Perfect Fall Colored Candy Corn Wreath
This candy corn wreath is absolutely perfect for fall decorating. What says fall more than candy corn? Plus, it’s really easy. You make it with strips of canvas fabric in candy corn colors. You could also use colored burlap for this if you want more of a rustic look. Just layer the colored fabric in a candy corn themed design onto a foam wreath form and secure them down with push pins.
9. DIY Popcorn Kernel Wreath
This popcorn kernel wreath is great for fall and it’s really cheap to make. Popcorn really isn’t expensive and you can make a wreath with just one jar or bag of kernels. You use Mod Podge to secure your kernels onto a pool noodle (which is really cheap, too) and then embellish however you want.
10. Easy Autumn Ornamental Grass Wreath
Ornamental grass is definitely not just for spring and summer. You can find fake grass at most hobby or craft stores and use it to create a stunning wreath for your door this autumn. Just attach your grass to a foam wreath form and then move the ends around to create this beautiful wispy look. You can add pinecones, acorns or other fall decorations to really make it fall worthy.
11. Simple Yarn And Felt Wreath
A skein of yellow yarn and some yellow felt are all you need, aside from a foam wreath form, to create this gorgeous fall wreath. Just wrap your wreath form in yarn (and you can use yellow, orange, brown, or any other color that you acquaint with fall) and then add your leaves that you cut out from felt. Glue everything in place and you’re all done.
12. Upcycled Fabric Bunting Wreath
You can make this wreath with a grapevine wreath, some upcycled shirts or other fabric and a fall decoration or two. The rosettes are made from upcycled shirts and you can use any combination of colors and designs. I love how easy this one is to customize and it’s the perfect way to use up some of that old clothing that you no longer wear.
13. Fabric Wrapped Welcome Wreath
This little fabric wrapped wreath has a welcome message that is spelled out in upcycled jewelry. You could also use old Scrabble letters or anything similar. To make the wreath, you simply wrap your wreath form in fall colored fabric. Then add your decorations like burlap or fabric rosettes, Halloween décor from the Dollar Store dollar rack or anything that screams fall. Then add your welcome message or even spell out your last name and really personalize it.
14. DIY Frilly Tulle Fall Wreath
If you’re looking for something a bit more elegant and fancy, this tulle wreath is it. I love the design of this one and it’s much easier to make than you may think. You just wrap felt around a foam wreath form and then tie on strips of tulle to give it that great full look. Add your fabric or burlap flowers or any other decorations you want. You could also do this in different fall colors for a really fabulous look.
15. Back To School Fall Apple Wreath
Nothing really says fall like heading back to school, right? This apple wreath is perfect for welcoming in the new school year and it would make a wonderful gift for a teacher. The apple is made from an old book and you glue it onto an old clock or picture frame that you no longer use. This entire wreath could be upcycled so it won’t cost you anything if you have certain items on hand. Add crayons and other back to school supplies for decorations.
16. Book Page Leaf Wreath
Turn an old book into beautiful leaves and then use those leaves to decorate a burlap wreath. You make the wreath simply by wrapping burlap around a foam leaf form. The leaves give it a wonderful fall look and the book pages have a nice back to school vibe. Use an actual leaf to make your diagram to cut out your book pages and then just add any other embellishments that you want.
17. Corn Husk Bow Wreath
This lovely wreath says fall with a beautiful bow that is made from actual corn husks. The wreath itself is a wrapped fabric wreath with rosettes made from burlap and fabric. You could also do lacy rosettes to give it a more elegant country look. Then, use corn husks to create a bow at the top. You can find corn husks in a combination of colors, so choose the one that best suits the look that you want.
18. Easy DIY Fall Felt Circle Wreath
This felt circle wreath looks much more complicated than it is. It’s a gorgeous color and has such a unique design. To make it, glue felt circles onto a foam wreath form. You can buy felt circles or buy sheets of felt and cut the circles yourself. Overlap each row of circles to create this gorgeous design. Then add silk fall colored flowers and maybe a ribbon or burlap bow for hanging.
19. Lace And Felt Fall Wreath
Cut small leaves from felt – in any fall color that you want, although this yellow is really bright and cheery – and add lace to hang it and you have the perfect fall wreath. This one is really easy, although a bit time consuming depending on the size. You do have to cut out all those leaves if you can’t find them precut. It’s really inexpensive though and a really elegant looking wreath.
20. DIY Ombre Rosette Grapevine Wreath
A grapevine wreath, that you can pick up at the Dollar Store for under $5, and some rosettes that you make from rolled fabric in graduated colors give you the perfect makings for a beautiful fall wreath. I love the ombre look and this one is really easy to achieve. Just roll your fabric, or colored burlap, into rosettes starting with a light color and slowing working your way to a darker color. You can cover the entire wreath form or just do half.
