10 DIY Fall Wreath Ideas



DIY Wheat Wreath

  1.  This is a gorgeous wheat wreath by Ann from On Sutton Place.  You would never know this isn’t a store-bought wreath!  I love it!  I actually made a wheat wreath once, but it didn’t hold it’s round shape very well.  I think I’m going to give it a try again this year using Ann’s fabulous tutorial.  If you like this wreath from Ann, she has many more beautiful DIY wreaths on her blog!

DIY Embroidery Hoop Fall Wreath

3.  This is a totally different take on a wreath using a simple embroidery hoop.  Kelly at The Lily Pad Cottage got creative and made this amazing embroidery hoop design for her front door!  It’s unique and beautiful!  Kelly shares a tutorial to make your own and it’s an inexpensive option!  Again, I may have to give this a try with my own spin this fall!

Doreen, I love the Real Oak Leaf Wreath, dear friend! I have a full glass storm door, so I have to place something rather "flat" there. Last year, I made a square picture frame wreath wrapped in moss. Hm~m~m. . .you've given me several great options! Fondly, Pat

PS. I love your arrangement around the beautiful real wreath. The votives holding wheat, an entire basket of white pumpkins, the milk bottles. J The frames and sheet music and nice quote!!!

I like the cornhusk wreath. My mom did not do crafts. She grew a huge garden and we'd buy fresh fruit in crates and she canned, raised baby chicks for a local grocer, used an electric ringer washer, hung out her clothes like a painting, painted her wrap around porch every year and her kitchen table and chairs too. Then every Sunday before going to a country church, she put a meal on low in her oven and it was done when we got home. She set her dining room table with a table cloth and we used her China, silver, and goblets for water. She wanted us to be used to doing this even though our farm house was old!!! She decorated beautifully on a budget. I don't know how with six children!! But her mom, my Grandma would have enjoyed using corn husks from the corn they grew to make this fine wreath. Would have been fun!!! Simple yet elegant. ?

It sounds like we had very similar Moms. Mine was not into updating her home or decorating much, but she liked things to be neat and the door was always open for visitors and there was always good food on the table! Thanks for sharing your memories!
