Fall is here! It is clearly a fan favorite. And it’s no wonder — with the gorgeous colors surrounding us, the crisp air at our noses … not to mention the delicious treats that give us some extra padding.
We have made it to our final seasonal DIY wreath using a metal wine barrel rim. If you’ve been following, it is truly a quick and easy wreath idea. We first began with the winter-inspired wreath, then a spring-time wreath, next came the summer-lovin’ wreath. Now we are excited to present our fall wreath.
It’s no surprise to you by now that I’m a true fan of wreaths for so many reasons. They are not only a sign of eternity, the forever circle of life, but they are also an easy and sometimes affordable way to decorate in multiple ways. That’s why they are a great addition to a wedding, or a celebration or even just on your front door.
I’ve had my eye on a few plants and trees around my yard that I could use for this wreath. On a sunny afternoon earlier this week, my four-year-old and I went on a walk around the yard to collect everything. I didn’t have an exact plan, so we just gathered anything that caught my eye in the yellow, orange and brown hues.
You’ll notice in the end, I didn’t use everything, and that’s ok.
Once I made it back to my workspace, I laid out all of my treasures, started trimming off the nasty, and got to work.
Using the largest pieces and working down to the small, I placed the bits on the wreath and played around with different variations.
Within a few tries, I began securing with wire, and layering the pops of color.
For a nice finish, I flipped the wreath over and snipped all of the excess wire.
15 minutes later, I was done.

You can literally use any wreath starter from the craft store, or get brave and find any circular item to re-use.
