The Easiest DIY Fall Wreath Ever

Believe it or not, my little blog here has existed for almost two years. Kinda crazy, right?! And in that time I’ve shared a LOT of easy DIY projects like my easy bakery sign or the milk and cream sign I made on an old window. I mean, we’re talking things you can do with almost no money and very little skill. Easy stuff, folks. Well today’s post may just take the cake for the easiest DIY I’ve ever done. Now I know that’s saying a lot, but I think it’s true because today I’m sharing the world’s easiest DIY fall wreath ever. I’m pretty certain there could not possibly be an easier wreath on the planet. Really, this thing literally took about 10 minutes to put together. But the best part of all is that it looks expensive. And that’s an important distinction when it comes to DIY wreaths. I mean, you want it to look like some fancy schmancy wreath you paid big bucks for, right? Right. Well I think this one does just that and I bet you’ll be surprised to see how simple it was to put together! Before we get going let me show you how the finished wreath looks:

Purdy, right?! I might be crazy, but I think this looks like something you’d pay big bucks for at Pier 1 or Pottery Barn. Ok, let’s get into how I made this in 10 minutes.

Before I get into the tutorial I have to tell you how I got the idea for this wreath. So I was in Michael’s the other day, as usual, and I was admiring all of their fall garlands. Most of them were a little too flashy for my style, but one of them in particular struck my fancy and I started thinking to myself how awesome it would be to have a fall wreath with the same design/flower combo. And then it hit me–why not turn this long garland into a wreath myself?! So I snatched it up, grabbed a grapevine wreath, and hurried home to make it happen.

The first step was cutting the garland to size to wrap all the way around the grapevine wreath one time. Thankfully it had this easy plastic chainlink design, so I just laid it over the wreath to measure how much length I needed and then I snipped it with a pair of scissors. EASY.

Next up I grabbed some wire and I made several little makeshift pins like this guy here to help secure the garland to the wreath. I simply laid the garland on top of the wreath, secured one of the pins in place over top, and then pulled it tight to the back of the wreath. Once I had it in place, I twisted the two sides of the wire together and got it nice and snug on the back. I did that in six places around the wreath.

Once I had the pins through the back side of the wreath I trimmed them all down with wire cutters so nothing was sticking out too long.

And that was literally it. No glue gun needed. No trimming tons of little greenery and floral stems. Nothing but the garland, a few pieces of wire, and a grapevine wreath. Done in minutes!

I wasn’t sure how this would turn out when I started, but I’m pretty excited about how it came together. I did plan to glue a few little white pumpkins on the wreath just to make it more fall-ish, but to be honest I loved the way it looked just like this, so I decided to leave them off. And the fun part is that this wreath idea would literally work with just about any garland. So if you want one with lots of pumpkins and pinecones, there’s probably a garland out there that would work just as well. Just make sure it’s nice and flimsy like this guy so you can work with it easily. And aside from being the easiest DIY wreath ever, the best part is that this wreath doesn’t look like an obvious DIY project. It kinda pulls off the real-deal, expensive wreath look, huh? But in reality it only cost me about $15 after I bought the garland on sale at Michael’s. (And with a coupon–whoot!) So simple, so easy and pretty darn cute too. I might just leave this up year-round I love it so much!

    Very pretty! I agree that it would look great year around. If you did want to change it up a bit for different seasons, you could add in some of those inexpensive floral picks (I buy mine at Hobby Lobby, on sale of course, usually in the seasonal area, but Michaels may have them as well). They can just be tucked into the grapevine wreath in between the flowers. I used to have a giant grapevine and greenery wreath in my home and that is how I changed it up for the seasons. Something like berries, tiny ornaments, fall leaves, etc. But it is beautiful as is! I will definitely look at garlands in a new way. Those pre-made wreaths can be super expensive!

    Beautiful, and paired with the white pumpkins gives it a fall look. Not all fall decor has to be orange and black.
