DIY Fall Wreath Hanging Basket
It’s officially September and consequently the end of our favorite season… Summer. To soften the blow of the thought of winter just around the corner, we thought we’d do a little DIY fall wreath hanging basket to help ease our way into Fall.
We also made our very first Pineapple Outfitter video. If you want to watch the video it’sright here. If you want to know exactly what we did in more depth read the post below. Most of all, we want to know what you think of our hanging basket and how it turned out.
To set yourself up for success, you’ll need to start with the right supplies. We got everything from Hobby Lobby on 50% off, so watch for their sales.
- Woven Rattan Wall Basket – (currently out of stock, but linked to a similar one HERE)
- Sunflower Arrangement
- Filler Flowers – Here and Here
- Buffalo Check Ribbon – Here and Here
- Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue Gun
Step One – Cutting the Flowers
The sunflower bouquet along with the filler flowers had stems that were too long for the basket. We broke out the wire cutters cut them down to the sizes that we wanted. The sunflower bouquet was had a especially thick stem, so it took a couple of tries before I could cut through the entire thing.
Step Two – Arranging the Flowers
I took the sunflower bouquet and tilted the flowers so they were facing more outward rather than straight up. I also took the filler flowers and arranged them around the sunflowers until I had the arrangement that I wanted.
Step Three – Tying the Bow
This step is by far the easiest. Cut the ribbon and then make your best bow and tie it around the basket. Place your flower arrangement in the basket. That’s it. If the flowers feel too floppy inside the basket, you can put tissue paper, bubble wrap, marbles or even newspaper inside the bottom of the basket to make it more stable. Just don’t addtoo much weight to the bottom of the basket, it will put more strain on whatever hook you are hanging it from.
That’s it. Just three steps and you have a brand new fall floral wreath hanging basket. It is so simple and takes just a few minutes to put together. Let us know if you make one and send us pictures and comments down below.
