Early Fall Wreath Tutorial

Early Fall Wreath Tutorial

I would say that fall is in the air, but it has been in the high 90′s here for a week now! So needless to say it is kind of hard to pull out the pumpkins, mums and fall decor just yet. I just want to go back to the beach!

Because I live in the coastal south we tend to ease into fall rather softly, but I like to add a few transitional late summer/early fall decor items. Today I want to show you how to make a super easy Early Fall Wreath that you can use either indoors or out.

In addition to the wreath tutorial today, I’ve teamed up with 12 other blog friends to bring you our annual Autumn Abounds Blog Hop and tomorrow we will all be hosting a fall linky party AND a nice CASH GIVEAWAY for all our readers! Don’t you want some cash to spend for your fall decorating? Woo hoo!

Autumn Abounds Fall Blog Hop 2014 Ok, let’s get to some Early Fall Wreath making!

We’re going with greens, buttery creams, and browns for a color palette.

To make this wreath you will need the following items:

  • 1 wispy grape vine wreath
  • 1 cream gerbera daisy floral bunch
  • 1 fall floral bunch with lotus pods
  • wire cutters
  • silk butterflies

Making a Fall Wreath

Step 1) Take your 2 floral bunches and use your wire cutters to cut the bunches apart. Separate the bunches into like piles.Make a fall wreath

Step 2) I always find that if I hang my wreath on a door (inside… obviously) then decorating it is much easier vs. just laying it on a table.  Follow the directions in the picture below. Trim an excess wires as you find necessary. Feel free to use hot glue to secure if desired. (I personally do not use hot glue because I usually like using the wreath again for another season. But if you need to, then do!) How to make a fall wreath

Now add in any extra natural elements from your floral bunch, like these dried seed pods and extra beach grass stems.Transitional Fall Wreath

Now comes the fun part! Wire on some tiny silk butterfiles. Place them randomly all around the wreath. They give a fun and carefree special touch. ;) Fall wreath with butterflies

I love how this wreath turned out! It’s perfect for our area of the country without screaming pumpkins and orangey fall. Oh trust me… that will be coming soon… just not quite yet. The temps need to at least drop below 80 before I pull out a pumpkin! ;)
