Create a stunning fall wreath for your door with this Nature's Bounty DIY Fall Wreath tutorial. Using a few simple materials like translucent "skeleton" leaves, feathers, sunflowers, and more, this rustic door decor will look lovely all season. Those slightly see-through yellow leaves add beautiful dimension to the wreath, letting the layered elements really make a statement. If you've never made a wreath before, this is a great project to start because it comes together so nicely. Your completed wreath will look store-bought. Don't miss your opportunity to decorate your door this fall.

In the Designer's Words: "This fall, take your cue from nature when you make this Nature’s Bounty Fall Wreath. Inspired by the bold colors of fall, the bright golden sunflowers and the bounty of nature’s produce, this wreath is sure to be a showstopper. Hang it on your front porch to celebrate the start of the new season, and bring warm fall wishes to those visiting your house in the season of bounty."

Materials List

  • Willow twig ring with a diameter of 21”
  • Natural hessian (burlap), cut into 2” wide strips (you will need 6-8 strips)
  • 20 large light yellow skeleton leaves
  • 3 dried flowers (in this case, dried protea flats were used)
  • 9 dried wheat stalks
  • 3 faux orange chinese lantern seed pods
  • 2 faux green chinese lantern seed pods
  • 11 yellow paper sunflowers on wired stems
  • 10 red faux raspberries on wired stems
  • 8 green faux cherries on wired stems
  • 25-30 faux acorns
  • 15-20 small red feathers
  • Three small cream feathers
  • 8-10 small yellow skeleton leaves
  • 15” of 0.3” wide brown satin ribbon
  • Standard scissors
  • Long-nosed pliers
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Instructions

  1. Use the hessian strips to create a “canvas” for the arrangement that will be done on the wreath. Add a drop of hot glue at the back of the twig ring and glue the one end of a hessian strip in place. Wrap the hessian strip tightly around the twig ring. Hot glue the second end of the strip in place at the back of the ring, and cut off any remaining hessian. Repeat with the rest of the strips, until two thirds of the ring has been covered with hessian.

  2. Glue a layer of large skeleton leaves to the hessian.

  3. Cut the stems from the dried flowers and glue the flowers in place.

  4. Complete the arrangement with the wheat stalks, seed pods, sunflowers, raspberries, cherries, acorns, feathers and small skeleton. Use the pliers to cut the wired stems shorter. Hot glue everything to keep them in place.

  5. Tie the ribbon around the top of the wreath and make a knot at the back of the ring. Then, make a loop with one end of the ribbon and hot glue it to the wreath. Neatly cut off the remaining ribbon ends and allow the glue to dry before hanging.
