DIY Fall Wreath


*The Finished Product* 

If you can't tell by now I'm quite crafty & love DIY projects- I decided to continue my Affordable Fall Decor post into a post all about this beautiful fall wreath I made for under $15 dollars. I never intended on making a wreath, I actually went to ACMOORE to purchase one I had seen a few weeks prior- but when I checked the price tag it was $59.99 for a WREATH like are you kidding me!!? So that was a big no from me. I mean it was cute and all but $60 !? Ya right. SO that is how I ended up making my own, which actually turned out to be extremely easy and fun. 

Step 1 //
Buy a wreath! You can either get a plain one with absolutely nothing on it or one with flowers, I choose this one with flowers as it was way more cost effective. It was only $9.99 for the wreath I used.

Step 2 // 
Pick your accents- I chose bedazzled pumpkins of course and some plain white ones. You can add anything you want to the wreath, like pine cones or acorns- Keep in mind you won't need a large amount of any of the accents & you should probably keep it to two or three items so it doesn't get overwhelmed. 

Step 3 // 
Place them & Secure them! I purchased some simple green floral wire that was about $2.00- I used this to secure the accents to the wreath after I had planned out my design- I spent about 20 minutes trying out different placements before I found one I liked. 

Step 4 // 
Add hanging wire! I just used the same green floral wire as before to create a hanging wire on the back of the wreath- Make sure it's fairly strong as this bad boy got pretty heavy with all the pumpkins! 

All done! Let me know if you make your own wreath! I'm planning on also doing a DIY Christmas Wreath! 

XO,
Nicholle

  10. Awesome DIY! I always try to find my wreaths on sale because we have double doors...double doors=double wreaths=double cost! This DIY is super cute, I love the glitzy pumpkins and that it was inexpensive :)
