DIY Wreath – Fall!

Hey guys!  My VERY favorite season is just around the corner, and I am so excited!  Temperatures briefly dropped below 100 here in Texas, and I decided it was time for my new Fall wreath!

Here is how mine turned out this year!

This wreath is SO easy and quick to make!


You will need a grapevine wreath.  I found mine for around $3 at Hobby Lobby.

The price varies on the stems you choose to use.  I got mine for $3 a stem.  That is a bit pricey for me, but I loved the berries on these, so I was sold!  I found my stems at Hobby Lobby and I used 8 of them.

I used a small pair of pliers to cut smaller stems off the long ones.

Then, I used some hot glue on the end of each little stem and glued them to the inside of the grapevine wreath.  There is absolutely no science to this… Just work your way around and fill the empty spots you see… Easy!

I also found some super cute burlap garland at Hobby Lobby I used to hang mine on the door.  I just tied a knot and cut the tails.  You can also find similar garland at Michael’s.  I like to use it on my Christmas tree too!  Here are just a few more pics of this easy peasy Fall berry wreath!

Hope you love it as much as I do!  Can’t wait to get the pumpkins on the entryway to match it!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would love for you to share and PIN my Fall wreath below!  Thanks so much!

    This wreath is beautiful! But just so you know, hot glue doesn’t do well in cold temperatures. If you live somewhere where fall brings cooler weather, you’ll loose your berries. I found that out the hard way last year with my pinecone wreath! Lol. You may want to substitue tacky glue:)

    Love the wreath but the pop up advertising on this site is super annoying.

    I love your front door! What’s the story behind it?

    Love it—– I am going to “copy” this tomorrow because we are suppose to get a break here in TN from the 100* weather & it is predicted to “cool” off. We were in Dallas last weekend for a soccer tournament & I believe I experienced the hottest day of my life thus far.

      Haha Jerri! This made me laugh! It is just gross hot! We get a break tomorrow too, and I CAN’T WAIT!!! 😉 Thank!

    This is so perfect for Fall! I wanted to leave a quick comment because I’ve been following you for a while and haven’t commented on anything! Shame on me! This wreath is perfect because it would be so easy to also buy red berries and change it when Christmas approaches…I love all the furniture posts!

    • Shanty2Chic on September 7, 2012 at 1:10 pm

      You are sweet Loretta! I appreciate you taking the time to comment! Good thinking on the red berries! 😉

    • Shanty2Chic on September 7, 2012 at 1:15 pm

      I know! Summer flew by! Thanks so much!!

  12. Sandy on September 7, 2012 at 8:11 am

    I love this! I have been looking for a simple wreath to make and I think this is the one. I already have the wreath, just need to go find the stems. And I have some burlap, so I can probably make me the ribbon hanger too! Thanks for the inspiration.

    • Shanty2Chic on September 7, 2012 at 1:46 pm

      That’s great Sandy!! I would love to see it when you get it all finished! 🙂

    You’ve inspired me to make my own wreath… and I am by no means a crafty person. Here I go… to buy my first glue gun 😉

    • Shanty2Chic on September 7, 2012 at 8:07 am

      Haha yeah!!! You will rock it! The $6 glue gun that Walmart sells is my very fav!! Good luck!

  14. Lacie9 on September 7, 2012 at 7:31 am

    I must know where you got your door!!! It is simply amazing!!!!

    • Shanty2Chic on September 7, 2012 at 8:08 am

      Thank you! A company out of Ft. Worth called ResDoor. Hope this helps!!!

  15. Alisha P on September 7, 2012 at 5:54 am

    I love the wreath, and will probably have to make one of my own now that I know it’s so simple to make. But I have to say, I think I may be having a visual love affair with your door haha! 😉 Anywho, thanks for the tutorial! The wreath looks perfect for fall if you like a more subdued look without all the frill leafy wreaths bring!

    • Shanty2Chic on September 7, 2012 at 8:08 am

      Haha thank you Alisha!! You are sweet! ;-))

  16. Debbie on September 7, 2012 at 5:07 am

    Beautiflul simplicity!!! Love it

  17. AnnieGarza on September 6, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Love it! Love it! But will it scratch your BEAUTIFUL door?

    • Shanty2Chic on September 7, 2012 at 8:09 am

      Nope! It’s a very hard wood with a very strong finish! It always has a wreath and we haven’t had a scratch yet! Thanks so much! 😉
