September is here, which means we are on the way to Fall and everything that it brings. If you’re a fan of cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, warm cider, sweaters, and everything pumpkin, that means there’s a lot to look forward to! Fall is my favorite season, and I’m hoping that even in 2020, it proves to be a wonderful time of year. In fact, I’m pretty excited to leave summer behind and move into a time that will hopefully be better than the past six months have been. So, I got a head start on my fall decorating with this Modern Farmhouse Fall Wreath. I’m in love with the way it turned out, and it was really easy to create. If you want to make your own version, here’s how to do it.
a metal ring or wooden embroidery hoop (mine is 14″)
faux greenery: I used Artificial Eucalyptus Olive Leaf Stem and Artificial Flocked Rabbit’s Ear
faux dried accent flowers
Step 1: Use floral wire to attach greenery to the hoop.
I wanted to cover about half of the circle, so I arranged four branches of the flocked leaves and three branches of the eucalyptus to fill that area. Wrap the wire tightly to hold the branches in place.
Step 2: Glue three miniature pumpkins in the center of the greens.
I used one that was slightly larger in the middle with smaller ones on either side.
Step 3: Glue a cinnamon stick on each side.
Step 4: Glue a small pine cone on each side of the pumpkins.
Honestly, at this point, if you prefer a more simple wreath, you could call your project finished and put it on display. It’s very pretty and elegant just like this.
Step 5: Add ribbon and dried flowers.
Instead of a bow, I made ribbon loops and glued them down in between the pumpkins and pine cones. You can do as few or as many loops as you like, and use any color/pattern of ribbon. I found this orange and brown plaid ribbon in the Dollar Spot at my Target store (which is also where I found the metal ring). Then, I glued a few orange flowers to fill in the empty spaces, adding texture and color to the arrangement. Once again, if this doesn’t match your fall color scheme, you can use any flowers or berries you prefer.
Pro tip: When working with hot glue and ribbon, it’s easy to burn your fingers. I like to use the eraser end of a pencil to push the ribbon down into the glue instead of my finger.
Once everything is wired and glued in place, step back and take a look at your wreath. See if it feels balanced and complete. I decided to add another cinnamon stick on each side to fill out the ends a little more. I also glued a few leaves in between the pumpkins and ribbon to mix in a bit more green. There’s really no “right” or “wrong,” it’s all about what looks great to you!
Now, your wreath is ready to display and welcome in the fall season.
