The colors of fall include vibrant shades of orange, red and yellow mixed with subtle shades of browns and offer a lot of options when it comes to decorating the home or exploring fall outfits.
Top 10 Fall Wreath Ideas to Explore
With the advent of online tutorials and numerous bloggers who showcase easy crafting tips, there is no dearth of ideas when it comes to DIY seasonal wreaths. Here are our top 10 picks for fall wreath ideas that you can explore this weekend. With a few weeks to go before the first day of fall, you still have enough time to pick your favorite wreath style, shop for the required materials and create your own special wreath(s) this fall.
1. Cookie Wreath
Make an edible wreath with homemade or storebought cookies, preferably in fall colors and shapes. Remember that since these cookies are perishable, the wreath may not last long, especially when hung outdoors.
2. Burlap Wreath
Burlap offers a unique, rustic look and is perfect for the harvest season. Mix regular brown burlap with orange or green for a more seasonal look. It can be quite inexpensive too.
3. Cotton Wreath
Use fresh (if available) or faux cotton flowers and make a classy, rustic wreath on a grapevine or foam base. Add some color with seasonal berries or leaves.
4. Marigold Wreath
Marigolds are common during the fall and with the different hues of orange, red and yellow, they are the perfect flowers for a fresh fall wreath. You could hang it on the door, use it as a wall decor in the living room or as a centerpiece for your fall entertaining.
5. Pumpkin and Gourd Wreath
Pumpkins and gourds are synonymous with fall, so what better way to welcome the fall and your guests than with a brightly colored pumpkin and gourd wreath on your front door?
6. Fall Leaves Wreath
Use fresh leaves from your yard or buy faux leaves from the craft store to create a stunning fall leaves wreath that can adorn your door, windows or walls throughout the season. Add a personal touch by incorporating pinecones, berries and dried flowers.
7. Hydrangea Wreath
Whether you choose to use fresh hydrangea or buy artificial ones, your wreath will surely impress.
8. Autumn Berries Wreath
Fresh or dried berries can make for a stunning display, especially when made on a grapevine base that can enhance the natural look of the wreath.
