A Bounty of DIY Fall Wreaths

The possibilities are endless with wreath design. Making wreaths from fresh garden greenery is an easy project that adds style and (often) fragrance to your front door. These DIY wreaths are not just the hallmark of winter holidays – you can make one for any season. Here are some of our favorite autumn-inspired wreaths to adorn your door this fall.Autumn Wreath Round-Up

The fall provides even more options, it seems, from dried seed heads to moss to fresh vegetable and flowers. You can come up with endless creative ways to make a fall wreath, but here are a few ideas to get you started. Use these as a jumping-off point and let your imagination go wild!

Ideas for DIY Wreaths

Bleached Pinecones

Collect a bunch of pinecones and bleach them to make this rustic-yet-modern wreath. See the full instructions here. You could also do this with untreated pinecones if you prefer, but we love the softer look of bleached pinecones.bleached pinecone wreath rustic ribbon


Autumn Berries

Make a rose hip and hawthorn berry wreath with a foam wreath form, berries, and some pruners. Just cover the form with tightly packed rose hips and hawthorn berries by poking their stems into the foam, and voila!

Herb Wreath

A fresh herb wreath can be created in the late summer or fall as a way to harvest and dry garden herbs. It’s pretty, useful, and it smells like heaven too!

Living Succulent Wreath

Oh, and you can make a gorgeous wreath out of real succulents too. This beauty is lovely any time of year, as long as you have warm weather.

Succulent Wreath Refresh

Once you make a living succulent wreath, you will probably need to refresh it every now and then to keep it looking its best.

Lavender Wreath

Fresh lavender sprigs drying on a wreath form makes a lovely welcome to guests. I hang these out in the garden to decorate while they dry and I can harvest the buds. You’ll be surprised at what I use for a wreath form too!

  1. Hi, I do think this is a great web site. I stumbledupon it ;) I may revisit yet again since i have saved as a favorite it. Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide others.|

  2. I love the rose hip wreath, but can’t imagine where you live that rose hips are this profuse. At any rate, how did you adhere the hips without burning your fingers! Low melt glue? Tweezers? It must have taken forever. Also, that doesn’t look like a typical foam wreath form. What did you use for a base?

    • Hi Teddee, I’m in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and my neighbours have a huge rose bush that could have made 5 wreaths this year. There is a link to the foam wreath form above the project image. It is made from floral foam. No glue, just press the stems into the foam. It’s a wonderful product for flower arranging!

  3. I love the hawthorn and rose hip berry wreath. I live in Charleston, SC – where can I purchase these berries? Do you have a link you could provide? Thanks!!

  4. Your top berry wreath is beautiful!
    Where do you purchase the base? Does the bottom stay attached?
    Thanks in advance for your answer.
