Hey, Y’all! The fall season will be here before you know it, and it will be time to decorate your doors and porches with colorful fall foliage and pumpkins galore! I just love fall colors – they are so vibrant and beautiful. That’s why I love having a diy fall wreath on my front door to welcome visitors to my house.

Do you love the look of a designer fall wreath, but have no idea how to even start creating one? Do you walk into your local craft store and become overwhelmed by all of the choices?

I may know how to make beautiful wreaths now, but that wasn’t always the case. There was a time when I would look at beautiful fall wreaths and wish I could make one for my own door (and walls, and table, etc).

I remember that feeling of longing and frustration because I didn’t know how to do it myself. That’s why I’m writing today’s post. I want to show YOU how to make your own (simple) DIY fall wreath.

As a side note, I am writing this post mostly for people who know very little about making wreaths and just want a wreath for personal use. However, the process is a great way to start if you have dreams of making and selling wreaths! I always tell people who want to learn how to make wreaths for selling to start simple and get more complicated as you get more experience.

How to Make a Fall Wreath Instructions

Use the video above along with these instructions to help you create your fall wreath. Are you ready to get started? Let’s dive in and create a DIY fall wreath for your door.

1. Trim Your Picks

Start by using your stem cutter or wire cutters to trim the excess length from your picks. I like to trim the skinny part of the floral pick off, just where it starts to thicken (several inches).

2. Add A Fall Foliage Pick To Your Grapevine Wreath Base

Insert the first fall foliage pick into the bottom of the grapevine wreath. Make sure to curve your stem so that it follows the natural shape of the wreath. Pro tip: insert the pick at an angle to keep the stem from protruding out of the back of the grapevine.

3. Hot Glue Your Stems Into The Wreath

If you plan to make this wreath to sell, hot glue all of your stems into the wreath. If you are making this wreath for your personal door, there’s no need for glue. You can reuse this wreath for other seasons by simply switching out the stems!

4. Add Another Fall Foliage Pick

Next, add the second fall foliage pick to the top of the wreath, facing in the opposite direction. Again, curving your stem to the natural flow of the wreath.

5. Add A Decorated Fall Stem

Add your first decorated fall stem to the bottom of the wreath by layering it on top of the fall foliage pick. This will create a full look.

6. Add Another Decorated Stem

Add your second decorated stem to the top of the wreath by layering it on top of the fall foliage. Now you have fullness at the top and bottom of the wreath.

7. Trim Off Excess Stems

Now check the back of the wreath and trim off any excess stems with your wire cutters. You don’t want to scratch your door.

8. Make A Bow

Let’s make the bow! Measure a 14 inch tail of wired ribbon and insert it into the EZ Bowmaker. Using your EZ Bowmaker, make a six-inch loop on both sides. You will have three loops total on both sides, making each additional loop slightly smaller. Trim another 14-inch tail. Use floral wire and wrap it tightly around the bow. Be sure to check out our bow tutorials, if you need additional help.

9. Attach Your Bow

Using the floral wire to secure it to the grapevine, attach the bow in between the top and bottom floral picks. Adjust your bow and florals so that they look full.

10. Hang This Beauty Proudly On Your Door!
