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.

Autumn Wreath Ideas
One of the best parts of wreath making and that you get to create the design. Usually, when I begin, I may have a general idea but not the whole picture. The creative process is part of the fun.
A few ideas of things to incorporate when making a Fall wreath
- Fall Ribbon
- Corn husk
- Faux leaves
- Silk Mums
- Faux acorns
- Faux Indian corn
- Grapevine wreath form
- Straw wreath form
Supplies and Tools for my Fall wreath featuring Mums and Pumpkins
- Snips aka wire cutters
- Hot Glue gun
- Hot Glue
- Hot glue skillet, I have this one (LOVE it!)
- Straw Wreath form
- Silk flowers
- Silk leaves
- Faux pumpkins
- Faux berry stems
- Wired Ribbon
What I wanted in my DIY Autumn wreath
- Straw wreath form because it screams Fall
- Oval wreath form because it is longer and our front door is large
- Fall leaves
- Colorful Mums
- A few sunflowers
- A bow
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.
