Soft and Feminine Easy DIY Farmhouse Fall Wreath

Create a soft and feminine farmhouse wreath for your front door. Instead of the traditional fall colors, Use a soft color palette for the florals, a neutral gingham ribbon, and white wooden letter for this easy DIY project.

Fall is my favorite season, and I was so excited to change up my decor and start transitioning into Fall! One of the big things that I like to change up seasonally is the wreath on my front door. This year I was really inspired by the farmhouse style of the Autumn Blossoms line of florals at Joann Fabrics, to create a Farmhouse Fall Wreath.

I love the vibrant colors of fall, but I don’t always want to decorate with them. Lately, I have really been drawn to the soft muted colors that are commonly seen in farmhouse style decor.

This wreath is incredily easy to make, and should only take you about half an hour. Joann’s had a large selection of pretty fall florals in soft colors that would look great on a wreath. When shopping at Joann’s don’t forget to use a coupon, florals can get a little spendy.

how to attach a wooden letter to A Grapevine wreath

Because I wanted to deconstruct this wreath to change it for the holidays, I decided against hot gluing everything down. Instead, I hot glued a piece of heavier gauge floral wire to the back of the letter and tied them on to the grapevine wreath. I tied the bow on to the top using floral wire as well.

HOW TO ATTACH FLOWERS TO THE GRAPEVINE WREATH

It is really easy to attach floral picks, flowers, and greenery to a grapevine wreath. You don’t even need any special tools!

  • Lay your florals out on the wreath to determine the general layout and look you like.
  • Stick the stems of the flowers through the wreath.
  • Use floral wire to arrange individual stems exactly where you want them if needed

When working with a grapevine wreath make sure to cover your work area to protect your tabletop, not only do they have a tendency to shed twigs as you work, but they can also scratch your table.

How to Hang Your Fall Wreath On The Door

To hang my wreath, I stuck a command hook that will hold up to 5lbs on our front door to hold wreaths. Super easy! If you have problems with your wreath scratching your door you can always buy some inexpensive felt and cut to the size of the wreath. Glue the felt to the back of the wreath. It doesn’t have to be perfect as no one will see it. The felt will protect your door from unsightly wreath scratches!

Create a soft and feminine farmhouse wreath for your front door. Instead of the traditional fall colors, Use a soft color palette for the florals, a neutral gingham ribbon, and white wooden letter for this easy DIY project.

Materials

  • Wooden Letter
  • Ribbon
  • Assorted Floral Picks and Greenery (I used 2 large picks with roses, and 4 smaller greenery picks)
  • Floral Wire
  • 18-inch grapevine wreath

Tools

  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
  • Scissors
  • Wire Nippers

Instructions

  1. Cut 10 6-inch ribbon pieces, and 10 6-inch pieces of lightweight floral wire.
  2. Fold 8 on the ribbon pieces in half, and secure the ends together with hot glue to create a loop. Twist a piece of floral wire through the loop, we will use the wire to attach the ribbon to the wreath.
  3. Fold the remaining 2 ribbon pieces in half lengthwise and trim a 45-degree angle, about a half an inch up the ribbon. When unfolded this snipe will create an inverted V that will prevent the ribbon from fraying. Bunch the untrimmed end of the ribbon and wrap floral wire around to secure to the wreath.
  4. Cut 2 8-inch lengths of the heavier gauge floral wire.
  5. Hot glue the 2 8-inch heavy gauge floral to the back of the wooden letter.
  6. Attach the letter to the grapevine wreath by twisting the floral wire around the wreath. Push the wire ends back into the wreath to prevent the wire from scratching your door.
  7. Lay your florals and ribbon out on the wreath to determine the general layout and look you like. I like to arrange the ribbon loops so it appears there is one long piece of ribbon weaved throughout the florals.
  8. Stick the stems of the flowers through the wreath.
  9. Attach the ribbon loops were desired by twisting the floral wire onto the grapevine wreath.
  10. Use floral wire to arrange individual stems exactly where you want them if needed

I love how this fall wreath turned out, and I get SO many compliments on it from visitors!
