It’s the first week of fall! To celebrate, I’ve cleaned and started decorating my home. One of my favorite DIY’s of this season, this DIY Fall Wreath with my decorating hack.
The one element that I always like switching up is my front door’s wreath. It’s the most inviting part of a home. You know, first impressions.
I think the hardest part about trying to decorate for every season is that it can be pretty expensive.
The first year I bought my house, I bought four different ones. Now I feel like I want to change it every month! Instead of spending all the money on one each month, I’ve found a way to compromise.
All I needed were these things:
- Base wreath
- Hot glue gun
- Clothes pins
- Fake flowers/decorations
The wreath I used originally had other summer flowers in it, but can easily be removed. So I took them all out and put them in a baggy for next summer.
I found the fall leaves and flowers at the dollar store for $3… a steal. The clothes pins came from Joann’s Fabrics.
Next, I cut some long stems and shoved them where the summer flowers went. The type of base wreath I had made it easy to do this. I did not hot glue these in to make it easier on me the next time I change it up!
For the heavy decorations and ones I wanted to specifically place, I did my fun little decoration hack.
I cut out the pine cone, pumpkin, and a flower and hot glued then on clothes pins.
By doing this, I can easily place the focus on the wreath where I want it to be. Then, I can just easily connect it to the wreath.
It’s SO simple and easy to do.
I love the flexibility it allows me to have when decoration and planning AND I don’t have to ruin the wreath by tearing it out with hot glue. It’s a win-win for me!
Personally, I think it turned out adorable. my favorite part is the decorations I used with the clothes pins.
The best part is I paid about $6 for this wreath and I got to personalize it the way I want.
It looks amazing on my door too. Hopefully it inspires me to go buy pumpkins and other outdoor decorations as well. I’ll keep you all updated!
How do you think I did with my new wreath?
