DIY Autumn Wreaths That You Can Make

Gold magnolia leaf wreath by Dorsey Designs 


What better way to welcome autumn and the change of seasons than to create your own fall wreath?

Intimidated by the thought of crafting your own autumn wreath? Don't be! You can collect plenty of free materials from nature - many in your own backyard (think leaves, acorns, twigs and branches) and there are many materials that you can purchase at dollar stores (wreath bases, glue sticks, craft adhesives, craft flowers) for the price of a fancy coffee or two. Even better, create your own fall wreath using salvaged and repurposed items found in your own home (painted newspaper, old encyclopedia pages, etc).

Best of all, you can create your own autumn wreath to match your own home and decor in as little as an afternoon. So round up your supplies (think glue gun and wreath base to start), and check out this collection of DIY fall and autumn wreaths and maybe you'll be inspired to create your own! Not in the mood to create your own? Some of those I feature below are available for purchase from Etsy sellers...click the link in the text to visit their shops. Happy Fall!

Suitable for any holiday, this book page wreath (found here on Pinterest) could be autumn-ized by tipping some of the page edges with glue and brown glitter



Handmade paper feathers and leaves can be made from old newspaper and book pages and make a unique addition to your fall wreath.







What do you think?

Do you make your own wreaths? What are your favorite materials to use?


Have a great week!
