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.

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.

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.

If you have quite a bit of fabric, you could make one of these for every season. Just change up your colors a bit.

The felt flowers are attached to a metal wreath form and it has just enough green leaves to give it a wonderful contrast.
30. DIY Harvest Wheat Wreath
What says fall harvest more than wheat? I love this wheat wreath that you can make from upcycling a cardboard box and wrapping it in scrap fabric or burlap. Then, you just add your wheat.

I really love this pheasant feather wreath. It’s so unique and so perfect for fall with the lovely browns and copper colorings.

34. Fall Pinecone Wreath
If you’re like me, you have tons of pinecones in the yard this time of year, which makes this pinecone wreath perfect for your fall decorating. It’s really easy to make and if you have the pinecones available, it’s really cheap, too. You can buy pinecones if you need to but you can also just check around with family and friends to find what you need. Someone is sure to have a yard full for you to take. Then just glue them to a wreath form, add a bow and you’ve got the perfect fall wreath. You could even add greenery and lights for a nice holiday wreath.
