Willow & Grapevine Fall Wreath
There's no better way to celebrate the changing seasons than with DIY wreath ideas that really capture the mood. This Willow & Grapevine Fall Wreath is an eye-catching addition to a front door. The warm colors and unexpected design make this fall wreath DIY really stand out from the crowd. For this project, combine a small and large wreath together for a truly unique design. It's also important to choose silk flowers that reflect the season. Since this project doesn't require real flowers, there's no need to worry about keeping your piece alive. This is a low-maintenance craft project that you can keep well into November.
- Larger willow wreath
- Smaller grapevine wreath
- Bunches of good quality silk flowers
- Wire cutter to cut the bunches apart
- Glue gun
- Floral wire
- Red, purple and orange sheer wired ribbon
- Attach the first set of fern flowers by tucking them into the larger wreath and further secure each one with a dab of hot glue.
- Attach the second type of fern leaf flowers and further secure each leaf with a dab of hot glue.
- Now do the same thing with the maple leaf flowers. The larger wreath is now complete. Notice that I attached the leaves in different directions randomly but quite evenly around the wreath.
- Now secure an assortment of silk flowers to the smaller grapevine wreath. In this wreath there is no pattern but I tried to make sure the colours were evenly spread around the wreath. I also further secured each flower with a hidden dab of glue. Notice that you can hardly see the smaller grapevine wreath because it is so full of flowers.
- Now attach the smaller wreath to the larger wreath. I just used floral wire to connect the two wreaths at four different points so nothing would move or come apart.
- I also used floral wire to make and secure the bow to the top wreath.
