I love Fall. I know who doesn’t right? Well one thing I love about Fall is the endless amount of crafts I can do. Last year I made an Easy Fall Wreath for our door and decided this year I would make another one and show you guys how I did it! Feel free to pin 🙂

 

EASY FALL WREATH DIY:

Materials:

  • Styrofoam round can be purchased at Michaels or JoAnns
  • Faux Flowers
  • Raffia in Tan
  • Raffia in colors(usually they come in a multipack)
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun with glue
  • TIME

The Process:

  • First get yourself a good amount of space. I chose our living room floor mainly because I wanted to watch a movie while I worked.
  • Next Spread your materials out around you.

  • Take your foam round and your tan Raffia and start wrapping the raffia in lots of layers around a part of the foam round. This part will take a while at the start while you get the hang of it but basically just wrap it enough to where its thick and you do not see the foam. Then make sure it stays by taking your hot glue gun and putting a few dabs on the back side of the foam round and hold it in place for a about 30 seconds. Make sure you are cutting off small pieces that will start to hang. This is more of a personal preference.

  • This part with the tan raffia takes a while but you get a good groove going!
  • Then take the colorful raffia when you are about 2/3 of the way done. Decide which colors you want to use. I suggest 2-3 colors. For this I used 3 colors that were more Fall like. You do the same process with this raffia as the tan color. You just wrap it around and cut and make sure you are covering the foam round very well. Then hot glue the ends down.

  • Now its time to clean up! Meaning take your scissors and cut off all those ends you see hanging around. It will make your wreath look much neater.
  • Next take the flowers cut just the ends of the flower portion off and stick them right into the foam. Also hot glue them down to secure them.

  • Next show off your gorgeous wreath, hang it on your door and let the compliments of your amazing talents pour in 🙂

      I love how you added ‘time’ as a material, because some DIY crafts need A LOT of that! I love how your DIY Fall Wreath tried out! I love making Christmas wreaths <3

      I’ve never seen a wreath made with straw (maybe I have, just never really “Looked”, you know?). This is so adorable, and I want to have one for myself. We finally have a door that leads to the outside and not just an apartment hallway. I need to get crackin’ on some holiday decorations

      Oh wow this is so pretty! My version of a fall wreath is buying one of those twig wreaths and sticking a bunch of orange/yellow/read leaves (fake, obvi) in there. But this is so cute! I need to try this!
