DIY Fall Wreath with Mums and Pumpkins

Making a beautiful 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.

Fall decorating begins with a beautiful fall wreath giving you and your guests a warm welcome at the front door.

Seriously, if you have ever wanted to learn to make a wreath but were afraid it was too hard. Stop overthinking it. This process literally consists of silk pretties, a wreath form of your choice, and an adhesive like hot glue.

Yes, you will find lots of tutorials from bloggers making wreaths with fancy pick machines, floral wire, and other complicated ways to attach the items to the wreath. Hot glue is your friend when making a wreath.

Making Changes

It’s your wreath. Even while you are making it, you can change anything you like. I didn’t use the original bow I made for this wreath in the end.

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. So just know that is perfectly fine to make changes as your go from what you originally may have intended.
