Happy Monday to your friends! Today we’re going to spread the fall cheer & share a fun DIY with you. Last year, it was so much fun creating a fall wreath
for the front porch, that I thought it would be fun to do it again & make it a yearly tradition. There is seriously nothing better than fall and cozying up your home with festive touches. This can be adapted to fit your own personal style, but here is our step-by-step to get you in the mood!

Fall Wreath Materials:
What I love about this wreath is that the total cost was approx. $15.00 to create!
Step One: Begin by layering your wreath with all the natural dried goods that you collected, one layer at a time. I began with the ‘wheat’ like material and circled the entire wreath. Next, I added the acorns around the parameter. It was a combination of hot glue and cutting & tucking in the stems of each of the materials before I got it looking just right.
Step Two: Next, I added the silk mini daisy flowers I had to the lower half/bottom section of the wreath. I pulled off the silk dusty miller and added this as an accent to the flowers in a variety of locations to add some depth to the wreath. I love the mixture of browns & then the POP of blue/green/gray dusty miller. I’m not usually a fan of silk flowers, but in the case of an outdoor wreath and I want to last all season, absolutely!
Step Three: Always save your “bold” pieces for last, as these should be most visible. I love the balsa flowers I found this year at Michaels. I decided to do a cluster of three on the right lower side of the wreath to balance it all out.
Step Four: Add a mini welcome sign if you wish by pining it into a section of the wreath. Attach the top center of the wreath with a piece of ribbon or trim. In this case, I found extra off-white trim from a wedding project that has a slight ruffle to it. I’m obsessed and do think it makes the wreath a bit more girly and brings out the color of the silk florals.
And voila! There you have your fall wreath! I’d love to see what you come up with this year, so please do be sure to leave a comment or link to your very own version. : ) Happy Fall!
