DIY Neutral Fall Farmhouse Wreath

DIY Neutral Fall Farmhouse Wreath

While I haven’t felt all that crafty or festive for quite some time now, I think I might have just found my solution – pumpkin candle fumes.

Sure you think I am cray-cray, but despite the fact that summer temps are still in full-swing here in the South, I have been one jovial b*tch lately. Go and huff yourself a White Pumpkin candle or two, and see if you don’t feel better.

In fact, I  have been feeling the autumnal vibes so strongly, that last week I was spontaneously compelled  to construct a neutral,  fall wreath.

In today’s post, I am going to show you how I made this Modern Farmhouse wreath in less than ten minutes.

For your shopping convenience, I have included affiliate links in this post.

Neutral Fall Wreath Materials:

Months ago, I purchased two plain magnolia wreaths for my newly gel-stained front doors. (You can read the gel-stain tutorial here)

Wanting to avoid any more clutter in my garage, my intentions for these plain wreaths were basically for them to serve as a foundation for each season. With each season, I could adorn them with floral picks appropriate for the occasion. (You can see how I decorated them for summer here)

(Step 1). To give the wreaths a fuller, more realistic appearance, I first hot-glued some real magnolia leaves into the wreath. Depending on the wreath you are working with, this step is optional. To achieve a modern farmhouse vibe, I drew my palette inspiration from the black and white ribbon and the black and white runner rug.

When I came across the white pumpkin picks at Hobby Lobby (in the fall section), I knew they would be the perfect fit for my color scheme. Not only that, but I knew they would pop beautifully against my wood-stained doors. Even better? Floral picks are great if you know you will be changing your wreath with each season. The wired back of the “picks” allows for easy interchangeability.

(Step 2.)With a wire already attached to the pumpkin, all I had to do was wrap the pumpkins onto the frame of the wreath. No hot-glue required! However, if you need some extra reinforcement, you could always use some green floral wire (that way the wire is camouflaged).

(Step 3.)To add more texture and dimension to the wreath, I added 3 pine cone bundle picks (using the same method as I did for the pumpkin picks).

(Step 4.) Using your ribbon of choice, tie a bow.  Then,  to secure your bow onto the wreath (or the wreath hanger as I did), use floral wire.

And there you have it…the easiest fall wreath ever!

And just so you know, I am only kidding about all of the candle huffing stuff (for the sake of your health, I don’t advise any fume snorting). Nonetheless, fall scents really do provoke the autumnal spirit (I am specifically speaking to those of you still feeling the summer heat, yet wanting to celebrate the changing of seasons).

Wishing all of you a fabulous fall season.

Now get out there and design some good vibes.

Erica I work at Michael's and it is more than a temptation to want to buy everything fall and bring it home. I think your wreath is very elegant and just perfect for fall. Happy Fall girl!!
