Autumn wreaths are one of my favorites to make. This year I am not just making a wreath for my front door, but also one to hang above my mantel. I love making a new wreath for any season, but a new fall wreath is my best-loved!

To make your own beautiful wreath for fall, start with a grapevine wreath form. This is how you can make your own beautiful fall wreath.
The first step is to add a faux fall leaves garland to the grapevine wreath form. Lay the garland down on the wreath and use floral wire or pipe cleaners to attach the garland to the wreath. My wreath was extra large, so I needed to use wire cutters to cut a small piece of an additional garland to have my wreath covered all the way around.
Because my faux fall leaves were laying so flat, I took the time to work around the wreath fluffing up all of the leaves. Just bend the leaves up from the garland around the entire wreath, arranging them until they are please to your eye. After giving the garland a good fluff, you could be finished and have a pretty leaf wreath to display.
There is nothing like bittersweet to add a punch of color to a fall wreath. I had an old bittersweet garland that I cut into smaller pieces to add to my wreath. To add the pieces, just stick the stiff stem of whatever you are adding to your wreath down into the grapevines until it is secure. If you cannot get the fall pick to be secure, use your hot glue gun to add a bit of glue to make sure the picks don’t fall out.
Continue to add the bittersweet all of the way around the wreath.
Begin adding faux fall flowers in the same way as the bittersweet. Cut the floral stems to only about eight inches and wedge the stem into the grapevines. Make sure it is secure, especially if you are going to welcome guests with this displayed on your front door.
Again, the easiest way to add the faux florals all the way around the wreath is to wedge those stems down into the grapevines.
To bring out the fall color scheme, in addition to the blooms, I added some more faux fall leaves. I selected leaves with a natural look to tuck inso the wreath all the way around.
I thought my wreath was all finished at this point, but I forgot my mini pumpkins!
I picked up several of these pumpkins to add to my wreath. there are so many different fall decorations you could add to your own wreath. Think about natural elements like pine cones, corn husks or olive branches!
My diy fall grapevine wreath is finished!
This coordinates wonderfully with my fall mantel decor. I will show you how I built this right here on the blog next week!
