Guys, I made this wreath two years ago. TWO! We took this photo yesterday to prove HOW good it still looks. You can just go ahead and start calling me Martha Stewart because this is impressive. We pulled our Fall wreath out over the weekend and marveled at how pretty it still was despite spending two brutal Florida Summers in the garage. Seriously, this was one epic DIY.
So today I thought I would re-share this wreath DIY with you because it’s clearly worth doing! 😉
During the Summer it just feels too hot to craft. I like working on projects on our back porch, but it feels impossible when it’s close to 100 degrees outside. I am really looking forward to these next few months as the weather starts to cool down. For now I’ll just be strolling the isles at Michaels (this is not sponsored, by the way!) until inspiration hits!
I hope you enjoy this epic craft. And PLEASE tag me if you make one of your own… I would love to see your masterpiece!

Fall Wreath DIY
Come up with a plan! This might include your color schemes, favorite greens and flowers…etc… I knew I wanted my wreath to be really full, so I picked stemmed berries in 3 different colors, red peonies to match our red door, and metallic gold leaves for a touch of sparkle. I also didn’t want there to be a specific direction for the flowers. I wanted it to look a little more organic!
So as soon as I figured that out, I laid out a few pieces in a pattern that I thought might work. Once I confirmed the pattern I cut all of my stems short enough to fit inside the wreath.
Once I had all my pieces cut, I put a dot of hot glue on the stems and one by one placed them in the wreath! Don’t be nervous, you can move them around while the glue is still hot, so just go for it!
At first I was a little worried about my pattern, but once I really got a good chunk of the berries added it started to come together… so don’t be concerned if it doesn’t look perfect at the start. It will all fall into place, I promise!
Next, I placed my statement flowers, the red peonies. I wanted their placement to seem natural as well so I altered the angle of each one as I fastened them in.
Lastly, it was time for the sparkle! I cut the the metallic leaves apart to add in just a little sparkle here and there! I love the touch of glam it added to the wreath!
