Good morning! It's Katie from View From The Fridge back again, today! In honor of the first official day of Fall (yes, it's here!), I thought I'd share a festive (and very quick) project with you ... an EASY 5 Minute DIY Fall Wreath!
Looks Fall-ish, right?
With my Fall decor this year, I'm going for a neutral color scheme with some accents of orange and turquoise thrown in. This wreath happens to fit right in, and the best part???? I was able to make it while all three of my boys were playing right next to me. It was so simple, I finished before anyone started crying, got in a fight, starting whining, or wanted a snack! Huge WIN!! Go Mom!
Here's how ...
Here's what you'll need:
- Grapevine Wreath. Mine was about 12" in diameter and I found it at Michael's for $5.99 (use your coupon, and it's an even better deal!)
- Faux Wheat Stems. I also found these at Michael's. One huge bunch for $4.99 (I used less than half for this wreath, and put these others in a vase on the mantel).
- Zip ties or string, twine, ribbon ... just something to secure the wheat stems to the wreath.
- 4" thick burlap 'ribbon' (found in the ribbon aisle of the craft store)
- Accent 'ribbon'. I found this turquoise ruffled fabric ribbon at Michael's (I sound like an advertisement for Michael's here, don't I ....).
- Clip on pre-made flower (again, from Michael's).
- Wood 'welcome' sign (again ... Michael's and then I painted it turquoise)
- Hot Glue Gun
And here's how easy the process is ... 5 minutes, tops (I took me more time to figure out how to hang it correctly on our door!).
- Using zip ties, string, twine, or whatever you might have on hand, tie the wheat stems to the wreath as shown:
The final step is to hang and admire!! (I used some extra fabric I had laying around for the wreath 'hanger', but you could also use ribbon, twine, more burlap, yarn ... or nothing and just hang it straight on a nail!).
That's it! I promise it really is a quick project that has your door looking mighty festive for the first day of Fall!
