Wreaths are one of my favorite things to create. Working on a new wreath releases my creativity and is surprisingly relaxing, so I am always looking for an excuse to create a new one! I still have my summer flamingo decor out on the porch, but as we enter September I know it’s time for a change…
Truthfully, I am not quite ready to leave the warmth of summer behind and so I’ve yet to decide what my fall porch is REALLY going to look like. My Mom on the other hand is ready to bring on fall, so I worked up this traditional-style welcome fall grapevine wreath.
Welcome Fall Grapevine Wreath
This wreath pulls in some of the pretty plum colors that are trending this fall, while the bright white pumpkin calls attention to the little “welcome fall” typography.
Here’s what you will need to create your own welcome fall grapevine wreath:
I purchased most of my supplies at Hobby Lobby. I have linked to each item used for your reference. I’ve also listed the full retail price for each item, though I ALWAYS wait for a sale or use a 40% off coupon. You can see that making a fall wreath is far cheaper than purchasing one for close to $100 online!
18″ Grapevine Wreath ($4.99)
Burgundy and Cream Flower Bundle ($13.99)
Burgundy Eucalyptus Spray ($5.99)
2 White Heirloom Pumpkin Pick – Small ($1.49)
White Heirloom Pumpkin Pick – Large ($3.99)
Glue Gun (I’ve been using this one for over a decade.)
Large Hot Glue Sticks
Cricut Electronic Cutting Machine
Black Matte Vinyl
How to make a traditional fall grapevine wreath:
- Start your project with a plain grapevine wreath form. I love to use grapevine wreaths, because it’s so easy to use the vines to “trap” and mount florals and decorative items.
- Lay down background greenery, or in this case burgundy eucalyptus leaves.
- Layer in larger flowers, followed by smaller filler florals.
- Add fall focal point. In this case, the focal point was three little white heirloom pumpkins. Optional: Using a Cricut machine and black vinyl, add a small welcome message to the largest pumpkin. This could also be accomplished with a fun sticker from the craft store. I also decided that the white was a bit stark and added some copper paint to the two smaller pumpkins.
- Add any final filler in and the wreath is done!
Isn’t this a fun fall wreath? It will go perfectly on my Mom’s alder wood door for the season!
Now, I am off to go look for my own fall porch inspiration 🙂
