This Easy DIY Fall Wreath brings some festive decor to your home, and can also serve as an amazing hostess gift!
The success of this wreath really lies in the colors you choose, and some good repetition in placement of the flowers.
What you’ll need:
- 1 12 inch foam circle
- 1.5 – 2 inch natural fiber/burlap ribbon, 5 yards
- hot glue (and gun!)
- fake ‘fall flowers’ – long ones as shown, this is what they called them at Michaels! (I used 6 white, 8 yellow, 8 white, 6 red and 4 of the blue – which serve as a nice accent). Cut from the stems, leaving approx 1-2 inches of stem to secure to the wreath
First, wrap your foam circle in the ribbon. Use a bit of hot glue to secure the end and then wrap, covering the entire thing. Secure the end with some hot glue as well. You’ll notice in the pictures that I did not have enough ribbon. This happens, and I covered in another color. I only had 3 yards of the light ribbon, and that’s why I say go for 5! It was a bit of a pain. In the end I’m totally fine with it.
Work around the first layer, one at a time, slightly overlapping, and leaving an inch or two of overhang. You’ll use 4 of the 8 white ones if you buy like I did. Once that’s complete, move onto another color. Place next to the first layer, but not completely parallel. You want it to stick out at a slightly different angle or height. This gives your wreath a little texture.
