Making a DIY Fall Wreath doesn’t have to be hard. It’s really just a matter of a wreath form, glue and pretty silk flowers and accessories.
My DIY Fall wreath this year features bright colored fall mums, pumpkins, silk leaves in faded fall colors, faux wheat and a straw wreath form.
Seriously, if you have ever wanted to learn to make a wreath but were afraid it was too hard. Stop over thinking it. This process literally consist of silk pretties, a wreath form of your choice and hot glue.
Yes, you will find lots of tutorials from bloggers making wreaths with fancy pick machines and other complicated ways to attach the items to the wreath. Hot glue is your friend when making a wreath.

My Bow Making Dilemma
Here’s what happened with the Bow. You will see as the video for this wreath begins, I am making a bow but I deleted the entire bow making part because…..
I didn’t use that bow in the end.
During the creative process, you may decide you don’t like something and want to change it. Unfortunately I made that decision literally at the very end of the process and couldn’t re-do that part of the video.
Y’all, I made three bows! The third one was a charm, not too big and it has loops and tails so Yay! I used two of the three ribbons. The plaid ribbon stood out too much.
