How to Make a Luxurious Wreath for Fall

How to Make a Luxurious Wreath for FallLuxurious Fall wreath on a blue door

The beauty of this luxurious wreath is that everything on here can later be taken off the grapevine base and used again next year for something totally different.  After finishing my fall tablescape styled around oak leaves and acorns, I was left with a big bunch of faux leaves.  If you missed it, I would love for you to subscribe to Celebrate & Decorate, so you never miss a post!  Faux oak leaves and fall leaves

Grapevine wreath with red arrows showing stemsThis is the easy part!  You are simply going to stick the artificial stem of the branches into the grapevine wreath, in between the vines.  Make sure it is secure by tugging on it gently.  I you are making these to sell, you will need to secure the stems more.  You can add a bead of hot glue all along the artificial stem to secure it to the grapevine.

Tuck the oak leaf clusters in just like the longer branches.  Space them out all around the wreath, trying to cover the grapevine wreath.  You will add some oak leaves on top of the branches, some inside the wreath, some on the outside.  Grapevine wreath of fall leavesLook at the wreath with a critical eye.  See where I have grapevine wreath exposed.  That will need some more leaves in that spot.fall wreath with faux leavesWhen the wreath got to this point I hung it on a door to finish it.  Fall wreath with faux leaves and faux plumsArtificial plums were added to begin that rich look that a luxury wreath needs.  Lush fall wreath with faux leaves and faux fruits and berriesFall fruit clusters were also added all around to build that richness.  You could add any fruits you want to get the look you are going for.  faux pumpkin with a wire stuck in it

  4. Chloe this is so beautiful! You make the most amazing stuff friend. Love how natural this looks and that it can be kept up for 3 months!

  5. Love the fruit and foliage look. Every time you make something I think, that one is my favourite, but then you go and post something new. You’re so talented. I am in awe of people who can do this. My mother could do it but alas, I cannot.

    1. Thank you Karen. I have the same problem, people ask what is my favorite wreath, or what is my favorite tablescape. I can never pick!
