It might not feel like fall, but the calendar says that it is which means the summer wreath had to go and I needed to make a fall wreath for my front door. This year I wanted a neutral color pallet for my fall decor. I’ve done the fall colors in the past but wanted a change this time around. So here is how I made a DIY neutral fall wreath with just a few supplies in under 30 minutes.
This wreath uses a grapevine wreath for the base just like my summer wreath and my indoor 5 minute wreath. I used one of my favorite methods to make this wreath easier. The trick is to buy garland! That’s right, garland that is already decorated for the season. If it’s a super full garland you might not need other floral stems but the really full ones tend to be pricey. I like to buy the mid range priced garland and then buy a floral stem or two to fill it out. If you’re getting it from Michaels or Hobby Lobby be sure to print the 40% off coupon from their website.

Grapevine wreath base
Faux Floral Stems
Faux mini pumpkins/gourds
Scissors or wire cutters
Hot glue gun and glue
Start at the bottom of the grapevine wreath and attach the end of the garland with floral wire.
Wrap the garland around the grapevine wreath attaching with floral wire at 5-7 evenly spaced points. Be sure to arrange the garland so that it sits on the face of the wreath.
Your garland is probably going to be longer than the circumference of your wreath. If that is the case, trim the end of the garland so that the length matches your wreath perfectly. Once it is trimmed, attach the end with floral wire.
If you don’t quite like how full your wreath is with the garland alone, use the remaining decor from the garland that you cut off to fill the voids. You can also add cut floral stem pieces from other arrangements or faux mini pumpkins/gourds. To attach the small pieces, use hot glue.
That’s the last step! I’m totally into the neutral fall decor right now so this wreath is winning in my books. For the rest of my front porch decor, I purchased some mums and pumpkins to spruce it up.
Here are some close up photos to show the details of the wreath.
