Fall Wreaths You Can DIY

Once fall has arrived, it's time to go from summery florals to cozy autumn hues. Whether you are focused on Halloween or Thanksgiving, you can incorporate the perfect design to last all through fall. A colorful witch hat wreath in burnt orange colors is perfect for a Halloween theme, while a pumpkin shape is ideal for Thanksgiving.

As a fail-safe, the color pallet to work from should include oranges, blacks, and golds to really make use of the beautiful autumnal tones available. Check out these fall wreaths for inspiration.

Pumpkin Wreath

This pumpkin wreath form is from Pinterest and uses two metal pumpkin forms, with burlap and rope. The shiny orange mesh is so eye-catching and will really catch the beautiful golden rays of the Autumn sun. Add plenty of faux foliage at the top to represent the bounties of fall.

Witches Hat Wreath

A witch hat wreath for your front door is easy to make and looks so impressive as a decoration. You can purchase all of the items at your local dollar store to keep the costs down. You'll need a witch hat frame, as well as deco mesh, pipe cleaners, and other supplies.

The best thing is you can customize it how you like with embellishments of your choice such as glittery spiders for example.


Sunflower Wreath

Nothing could scream fall quite like a sunflower wreath. You can purchase the materials at the dollar store. There are about 140 clothespins on a 14.5-inch wreath. Paint the pins yellow and once they are dry, arrange them around the wreath. Finish by hot gluing sunflowers. You can use a pizza pan in the center, which is painted, and a message of your choice is added.


Rake and Shovel Wreath

Transform a dollar store rake and shovel with some jute and burlap ribbon for something a bit different. Wrap the jute rope around the handles and affix with hot glue. You can attach a tag that says blessed for Thanksgiving.

Scarecrow Wreath

This wreath is not only perfect for Halloween but the whole fall season. Your scarecrow can be happy, or you can make them a little scary by adding cobwebs or a creepy smile. No matter what you choose, this wreath will be a hit.

Spooky Cat Wreath

A cat grapevine wreath is perfect to adorn your door any time of year, particularly for Halloween. You'll need two circular vine wreaths in different sizes, one for the head and one for the body. Use hot glue to affix them together.

You can purchase Halloween themed ribbon in your choice for the bow. It really will make such a sweet decoration for your door and you could even use battery operated firefly lights if you want to illuminate it.
