Natural Fall Wreath

Fall is in the air!  After a hot summer in Atlanta, I'm ready for cooler weather.  When it comes to decorating, fall is my favorite season.  I enjoy adding touches of fall throughout my home.  My first project was to make a fall wreath to hang in the kitchen.


To start, I purchased a grapevine wreath and a couple bunches of "filler flowers".  These will dry, and still look nice!

To make a nice, full wreath I started by trimming the stems.  Then I took each flower stem and stuck them into the grooves of the wreath until I was pleased with the look. No floral pins or hot glue required.  As each stem is added it should cover the end of the stem before it.  Continue until the wreath is completely covered.

I love the subtle shades of purple in the wreath.

With the addition of a few red pears to my all white display, my kitchen shelf is decorated for fall.

  15. Brandi, how simple and pleasing! I'm ready for autumn also. We're still in the 90's here in Central CA; whew! You're wreath makes a nice transition piece as its still fresh looking and not full of the darker colors. The pop of color from the pears is perfect!

  20. Your wreath turned out wonderful! I've been thinking I should try and make something for my front door :)

  21. Very Pretty! It's about time I stop being lazy and actually get a wreath on my door. Two seasons have passed with only the door wreath hanger hanging on the door. Very sad:)

  22. That is so creative! I am so not a DIY-er but I really want to be!!

  23. Yes, my fave weather and time of the year. I was just telling someone the sane this morning. We brought in the fall season this weekend with a trip to the football game and the weather was near perfect, cool and warm, at the same time.

    I see you, about to get your fall decorations on. Lol.

  36. This is a great idea! I love a natural wreath, and this one is just beautiful. Good to know that the wreath can hold the flowers without any hot glue.

  41. This is amazing. I can hardly believe you didn't use hot glue. I love the look of this, but I don't think my flower arranging skills are as advanced as your's.

    Again, I'm so impressed. This looks so expensive.
