A fall wreath is a festive way to transition your home out of beachy, sunglasses mode and into warmth and coziness, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes. Check out my list of ideas for fall wreaths that will make you glad that winter is coming!
1. Upcycled sheet music pennant-embellished wreath. Transform any plain wreath into a fall-themed one with this easy add-on using old sheet music.
2. Burlap and lace wreath. Burlap appears to be THE thing for making a wreath look autumn appropriate, as so many of these fall wreaths incorporate it. Here, it combines with lace and fabric accents.
3. Felt flower-embellished wreath. I LOVE this method of making flowers–so simple, so easy to use with any non-fray fabric. You could even do this with cardboard or newspaper!
4. Fresh sage wreath. Take advantage of harvesting lots of herbs when they’re fresh, and make a wreath that is both beautiful and useful.
6. Paint-edged pine cone wreath. This wreath would make a terrific kid craft, particularly for a club or Girl Scout troop. And it’s super pretty!
7. Wood and burlap wreath. You can saw the wood by hand from any piece of dried wood; I think it looks perfect completely natural, but at the same time I also want to see it with every piece sanded and stained!
8. Paper leaves. You can use any type of paper for this wreath, either choosing out autumn-themed colors or dyeing white paper with liquid watercolors or diluted paint.
9. Bohemian feather wreath. Your kid always bringing home found feathers? This is a great way to display them!
10. Corn tassel wreath. Who would have thought that the lowly corn tassel could make such a fluffy, fun wreath?
11. Fallen twig wreath. Got any fallen branches in your yard? We just had hurricane remnants blow through, so you can be that WE do! You’ve got to pick up your yard, anyway, so you might as well grab the pruning shears and the hemp cord and make yourself this beautiful wreath!
12. Indian corn wreath. Put your farmer’s market haul on display in a colorful way!
13. Popcorn kernel wreath. Who says that popcorn is only a good decoration for the Christmas tree?
14. Pussy willow wreath. So many wreath tutorials call for fake flowers and greenery when it isn’t really necessary; this tutorial, however, calls for real pussy willow, and you’ll for sure be able to tell the difference.
15. Acorn wreath. This is the perfect natural wreath! Use a cardboard or straw wreath base, and when the season is over, simply toss the wreath into a likely spot in your yard for the squirrels to find.
16. Candy corn wreath. I love the subtle reference to Halloween candy that this wreath makes. Keep it classy with plain colors, or make it more whimsical by using prints in the correct colors.
17. Miniature pumpkin wreath. Yes, this tutorial uses REAL miniature pumpkins to make a wreath. Get ready to do a lot of wire wrapping!
18. Ribbon wreath. Do you find it impossible to throw away ribbon scraps, just in case you find a use for them? You’ll be thrilled to use up your ribbon scraps with this ribbon wreath!
19. Scrap fabric wreath. This particular wreath is made using strips of a drop cloth, so it’s a lovely neutral color, but I don’t mind if you want to go wild with your fabric stash!
20. Scarecrow wreath. Upcycld outgrown children’s jeans into this scarecrow wreath that’s a non-scary way to transition into Halloween.
21. Upcycled book page wreath. This wreath is made from rosettes formed from old book pages. It’s surprisingly easy to make, because you can freehand all of the rosettes.
22. Copper pipe wreath. It’s very likely that somewhere nearby–perhaps in your garage, or perhaps in a neighbor’s garage–there are some copper pipe scraps that nobody wants. And copper pipe is the PERFECT color for autumn! I don’t love faux flowers, so personally, I’d embellish this wreath with fall leaves dipped in beeswax, but hey–you do you.
23. Cinnamon stick wreath. This wreath is going to smell amazing!
24. Burlap bubble wreath. This wreath has a different look than the other fabric wreaths on this list–the way that the burlap is tied makes it super cute and puffy!
25. Pine cone wreath. I don’t love the idea of using a styrofoam wreath form, but perhaps you have an old one that you can upcycle, or a pool noodle to repurpose.
26. Pompom wreath. Since you choose the yarn, you can choose any color scheme you’d like for this pompom wreath.
27. Twig and fabric rosette wreath. The wreath almost looks like a sun, with the twigs as the sun’s rays and yellow rosettes. It’s lovely as is, but you can get a completely different effect by changing out the color of fabric.
28. Yarn-wrapped wreath. This is a GREAT project to use up any yarn scraps that you have in suitable autumn colors.
