Hey y’all, I am SOOOO excited to share my FALL wreath creation. This is my second go at this. I picked up a few supplies from the Dollar Tree. The wreath structure I originally had was a whicker-type and small, only option at the location by my house. I had to cover it and it just didn’t look right to me. So I made a special trip to Hobby Lobby (always special & any excuse to go there, I’ll take it) to grab a grapevine wreath, which is really what I wanted all along.
I LaLaLaLOVE the partially exposed look of this wreath, it has such a simplistic, rustic look and requires less supplies. It also didn’t take too much time, easily less than 30 minutes. I just wish it hadn’t taken me so long to make it to Hobby Lobby.
I was so happy to hang my wreath this past weekend (a bit behind, remember I kept missing out on getting to Hobby Lobby, not like it’s far lol). I LaLaLOVE Fall, even though Florida seems to miss the memo on that. With that said, this Saturday was the coolest day of the season and really felt like Fall was starting to make an appearance- finally. I really enjoy opening the windows and letting that Autumn scent in the air circulate through the house.
So… how did I make this? Here’s the how-to y’all:
Supplies to gather:
- Grapevine Wreath 14″– Hobby Lobby (Michael’s also carries)
- Monogram Letter– mine was from Hobby Lobby (since I was already there 🙂 but you can find them at Michael’s and Wal Mart too).
- Sunflowers- one set (bunch) from Dollar Tree
- Fall Leaves- cut from one garland purchased at Dollar Tree
- Paint (I used an antique white I already had) for your letter & a brush (if you don’t have a brush on hand you can use a cheap makeup sponge)
- Hot glue gun
- Juke rope, twine or ribbon to hang wreath with
Now, get to your designated crafting area and plug that glue gun in to get heating. You will want to make your wreath based on where you will hang it from, so find a good strong twig or two that will be centered enough to tie your twine to. Then you can turn it around and begin designing. If your wreath hanger has a big enough hook you may be able to skip this step.
I cut each sunflower, so that they are all separate. Trim them for what works with your wreath, then bend and push through the vines or glue if need be. It’s easiest to use the wire stem to help the flower stay put. Next, cut however many leaves and glue in place. Lastly, hot glue the letter in desired location. And BOOM, just like that you’re ready to hang your wreath!
Feel free to mimic this one, mirror it or use it for inspiration. Some other ideas to add or change yours up: different flowers, burlap, add a bow, small pumpkins or gourds. You could even go a little scary or more Halloween themed. I love Fall as a whole, and I LaLaLOVE that I can put up my Autumn decor and it works before Halloween through Thanksgiving; therefore, making this wreath perfect from beginning to end. Be sure to share any other ideas or ways to add a special touch. I’d also LaLaLOVE to see how yours turns out, please share!
