A festive fall wreath can add style and design to your front door. You can purchase wreaths at the store, or you can do a DIY project. If you want something that you can customize and personalize, a DIY wreath is a great option. Many different styles are affordable and easy to make, yet look classy at the same time. Here are a few of the DIY wreaths that are perfect for fall.
A Burlap Wreath
One of the easiest fall wreaths to make is a simple burlap wreath. Take a foam or straw wreath form and wrap the wreath in burlap. If you are using burlap ribbon, it is better to use a flat ribbon than one with wired edges. The wire edges won’t wrap well and will stand up rather than laying flat. Next, hot glue gun the ends of the burlap down. After the glue dries, you can then decorate the burlap with your favorite fall items. You can glue flowers onto the bottom of the wreath, add a bow in fall colors or even add a small scarecrow or pumpkin. A burlap base allows you to use your imagination when decorating.
An Indian Corn Wreath
Another easy fall wreath to make is an Indian corn wreath. Most grocery stores carry dried out Indian corn during the fall months. Pick up pieces that are all about the same size in a variety of colors. Indian corn can be found in yellows, browns, and reds. A variety of colors helps to make your wreath stand out. Once you are at home, lay all the pieces together to make a circular wreath shape. Once you are satisfied with the layout, pick up some hot glue and glue one piece of corn to the next. Continue this until you have a circle wreath made completely out of the Indian corn. This wreath is the perfect way to welcome fall and carries over through Thanksgiving.
A Yarn Wreath
The last easy and inexpensive fall wreath you can make is a yarn wreath. Take a Styrofoam wreath shape and wrap it with yarn. You can select from a variety of fall colors including brown, golden yellow, orange or red. Once the wreath is wrapped, you have a solid base that you can decorate. Consider adding a wood cutout letter that is the first letter of your last name, add fabric flowers, place a wooden welcome sign, or add foliage to the wreath. Use hot glue to secure your decorations in place and then use a ribbon to hang it on your front door.
