Fall is here and I couldn’t be happier! It is one of my favorite seasons. I love the crisp air and the pretty autumn colors, but I am not too crazy about the fact that snow will soon be here. Recently I re-painted the entire main level of our home and I have been thinking of ways to update our fall/winter décor. The first thing on my list was a new wreath for our front door. I didn’t want your typical wreath with leaves and acorns on it.
DIY Fall Wreath Project
What you will need:
- Styrofoam wreath (This one is 12 inches)
- Burlap (Purchased at Michaels)
- Paper in whatever colors you like (you can switch it up depending on season)
- Glue gun and glue sticks.
- Any other decorations you would like for your wreath
First, make sure you actually plug in your glue gun. Today I thought I had plugged mine in but when I came back to it I realized I hadn’t (it’s been a long week!). Once it’s nice and hot you can start gluing on your burlap. Just wrap it around your wreath form. I actually did two layers to make sure that you couldn’t see any Styrofoam underneath.
Once you have wrapped it all up simply glue the end piece down. Make sure you glue it to the back side so that it is hidden when it is hung up.
Then the fun part! Start decorating your wreath. I decided to use rolled paper roses and some white feathers that I had laying around. The rolled paper roses are super easy to make. You can find a ton of tutorials online if you search for them.
I love how versatile wreaths can be. You can make them for any season or occasion, all it takes is a little imagination and a few minutes of your time and VOILA, you have a beautiful new piece of décor for your home.
