Fall Wreath from Natural Coffee Filters
The flowery patterns of the natural coffee filters coupled with their natural tan color (suitable for fall) make them ideal for a novelty coffee wreath. Use a straw or any other base of your choice and once covered with filters, place a ribbon and bow and you have your beautiful fall wreath all ready for display.
DIY Fall Wreath
Another innovative idea for a DIY fall wreath is to use a combination of burlap fall leaves and pine cones. Wrap the form with burlap, glue the cones on the inner side of the form and paste fall-colored burlap leaves over the form. Cap it all with a letter ‘S’ carved out of a textured cardboard and your wreath is all ready to hang on the door with a message of welcome to the sweet autumnal season!
Fall Wreath Using Wooden Frame
Another out-of-box and fun idea for creating DIY fall wreaths in less than 20 minutes. Use a spray-painted decorative wooden frame as base and decorate it with seasonal floral picks, burlap ribbon, decorative ribbons, chalkboard ornament as well as a wooden monogram letter! Not the most conventional fall wreath you will come across, but fun and attractive all the same!
Gold Hoop Inspired Wreath
If grapevine, wire or foam wreath forms appear too traditional to you, try gold metal ring hoops for wreaths that exude a quiet elegance. And with the gold rings, it is best to not use the glowing red, purple or oranges – colors most commonly associated with autumn. Instead, go for quiet and muted colors (such as tan, soft greens or rusty pink) for the (faux) flower stems, moss sprigs and gold leaves.
Fall Wreath From Egg Shells
Create some beautiful fall wreaths using dried and waxed egg gourds. Even shaped gourds will help you make a wreath attaching the gourds in the form of a hoop with an iron wire and add some flower sprigs for decoration. Or you can use a grapevine wreath form and attach a couple of pear-shaped gourds for another attractive wreath. And as the tutorial shows – easy to make and in no time, too!

Wreaths always increase your curb appeal and it’s time to make one for the fall season. This tutorial shows a very easy way to make one yourself. Be creative and surprise everyone!

Here’s another creative way to use an old picture frame that you can always find in thrift stores and flea markets. This wreath looks lively and whimsical – a truly unique piece of home decor. Check out the tutorial to see how it was done.
Rustic DIY Fall Wreath
This wreath idea uses pinecones, too, in order to attain a rustic charm. But you will also need some wired sisal vine, decorative burlap ribbons and baker’s twine which only serve to increase the rustic appeal of the wreath. And the chalkboard with its ‘Happy Autumn’ message is really the cherry on the pie.
This cupcake wrapper wreath tutorial is shown working with orange and black wrappers to make it a perfect Halloween wreath.
