How to Make a Fall Wreath
Remodeling a house takes time. Usually more time than you ever hoped it would take and you realize just how much patience you were lacking before you went head first into a remodeling project. When you are waiting on building permits, the electrician to call you back, or maybe you are waiting for the flooring that you ordered to come back in stock. It’s a process and in the meantime, while our house may feel like a disaster, sometimes it’s nice to do something that you control…like make a fall wreath. How to make a Fall Wreath you might ask? It’s easy, it’s fairly inexpensive and it’s something you can do to brighten your entryway with very little effort.
The good news is, you can make a Fall wreath too, because it’s so easy. If you have never made a wreath before, have no fear, we will walk you through everything you need to do from start to finish. If you have been following us for a while now, you may have already seen our other videos:
How to Make a Fall Wreath
Step One – Gather All of Your Materials
- Grapevine Wreath
- Leafy Greens – (i.e. Dusty Miller and Lambs Ear)
- White Plastic Pumpkins
- Baby’s Breath
- Wire Cutters
- Floral Tape
Step Two – Insert Leafy Greens
Cut the stems of the leaves to the length you want. Don’t leave them too long, otherwise they will be hard to fit into the grapevine wreath. Push the stems into the Grapevine wreath, all facing the same direction evenly spaced throughout the wreath.
Step Three – Placing Pumpkins
We wanted the pumpkins to be evenly spaced around the wreath. Always work in odd numbers. In our example we have three pumpkins, but you can use five or seven pumpkins depending on their size and the size of your wreath.
Step Four – Adding in the Baby’s Breath and Filler Flowers
Cut the stems of the filler flowers to the desired length. I like to put my filler flowers next to the pumpkins to help look anchored into the wreath. If I have any left over, then I space them out around the wreath. Each time tucking the stems into the grapevine.
Step Five – Cotton
Cut the cotton to the desired length and look that you want to achieve. For our example here, I chose to leave 1-2 inches of stem length so I have enough to tuck in, without the cotton falling out.
Step Six – That’s a wrap…or a wreath in this case
The last thing I like to do is hang up the wreath where I will be hanging it (like the front door or a wall). Then I step back and see if anything looks amiss, or if everything looks right. As you can see in the video, I did not like the look of the daisies because it looked too much like Spring, so I took them out. I didn’t realize this until I had hung up the wreath and stepped back and looked at it though.
