DIY Fall Wreath

photo-8Fall is my favourite season of the year. Although it is a little bittersweet saying goodbye to summer, I can’t resist enjoying the beautiful colours that fall brings with it – not to mention Pumpkin Spice Lattes, chunky sweaters, scarves, and spicy, warm fragrances. I decided to dedicate the month of October to posts all about fall décor and recipes. Today, I am sharing a really simple DIY fall wreath.

For this project, you’ll need the following:

  • Grapevine wreath
  • Several strands of berry garland (I used 10)
  • Ribbon
  • Wire cutters
  • A silk flowerphoto 

I began by cutting the long stems off each strand of berries and bent each strand into a “c” shape, like this:

I poked one strand through the wreath at a time and placed the garland in three layers. For the first layer, I placed four strands of the greenish brown berries evenly around the wreath.

For the second layer, I used three strands of the orange berries.

For the third layer, I used two strands of the greenish brown berries again. I then cut up the last strand of garland into several pieces and tucked the pieces into sparse areas.

I tied a chocolate brown satin ribbon around the wreath, looped a silk flower through the ribbon and hung it on the inside of my front door. It was very simple project,  but looks so festive and elegant!
