Fall Wreath DIY Tutorial

Fall Wreath DIY Tutorial | read more at happilythehicks.com

Wreaths are one of my favorite things to make, because there are so many different types, and you can do so much with them. I’ve made burlap, fabric and grapevine wreaths, but my favorites are the ones with lots of flowers. If you haven’t noticed by now, I am all about flowers, and use them in my decor as much as possible! This wreath was actually inspired by my friend, Brittany, because after she sent me a picture of hers, I ran to Hobby Lobby to get supplies for my own! So I feel she should get some credit for it. I loved how she used some purple in her wreath, and decided I would do the same. It turned out perfectly, and I’m so happy with it. 

This spring I made a wreath and shared that tutorial with y’all. It turned out so cute (if I say so myself), and I loved how much it brightened up my door. It was definitely the best wreath I had ever made! And you can imagine how funny it was when, just a few weeks after we moved into our new apartment, our next door neighbor made her own wreath to hang on her door. Then, after I made this fall wreath and hung it up (yes, I hung it up WEEKS before “fall”, because I was so excited about it), she followed suit and hung hers.  I love walking up to my apartment now, because it feels so homey and cheerful with our cute little touches.

The best thing about wreaths is that you can add your own personal touch to them to make them special. Pick your favorite flowers, add a letter, house number or fun decoration that speaks to you. And go crazy! 
Have you ever made a wreath before? How did it turn out?

Fall Wreath DIY

4-5 bunches of fake flowers (try to get a mixture of small, large and filler flowers/greenery)
18″ grapevine wreath
Hot glue gun and glue
Scissors/wire cutters

1. Cut the flowers you want to use off their main stem using the scissors or wire cutter (I recommend a wire cutter because you’ll ruin the scissors. I already had some that were messed up, so I used those!). Leave about 3-4 inches of the individual flower’s stem- makes building the wreath easier.

2. Stick in the wispy, long pieces along the part of the wreath that you want the flowers. These will be the “frame” of the wreath.

3. Place your larger flowers where you want them. I tried to keep things balanced so it wouldn’t look weird. To place them in the wreath, I just stick the flower’s stem into the grapevine wreath as far as I can to make sure it stays firm and in place.

4. Fill in with smaller flowers and a few other longer, wispier pieces.

5. Rearrange and add/remove until you get what you like!

6. Hot glue the flowers to the grapevine wreath. I tried to glue the base of the actual flower to the wreath, but I also glued down some of the stems. Make sure you get some glue in around the backside of the wreath too! This is to make sure you don’t have flowers flying off when the winds pick up.

7. Hang it up, step back and enjoy!
