This fun DIY Autumn wreath is a great way to add some festive decor to home AND have a lot of fun together while you make it. Enjoy it from back to school through Thanksgiving (or whenever you start to bust out your Christmas decor!)
- 1 straw wreath
- Decorative, wire-in, burlap ribbon
- 2-3 stems of glittered (frosted) fruit and berries (seasonal/floral at craft stores)
- Floral wire
- Gold or fall colored twine
How to make this Diy Autumn Wreath
- Gather your supplies
- Use floral wire to secure all the stems together from the bottom of the fruit and below
- Wrap the burlap ribbon around the stems and secure with a small U shape of floral wire (see below)
- Cut a length of ribbon 3x the width of the fruit
- To make the opening of our cornucopia cut a couple of U shapes out of the floral wire.
- Take the ribbon shown in image 4 and bring the two ends to meet in front, overlapping slightly.
- Push your U-shaped floral wire into the ribbon pieces that overlap, and twist the wire from the underside to secure.
- Cut a second piece of burlap ribbon a couple of inches longer than the first, and repeat overlapping and securing with U-shaped floral wire.
- Tuck raw edges under as needed.
Putting it all together:
- Wrap the string around your wreath and tire to secure.
- Place your stems on the wreath as show in the above image. Flip the wreath over and use floral wire to secure the stems to the string.
Finish the wreath but wrapping the burlap ribbon around the wreath, and attaching a bow. I made the bow out of the ribbon by looping two separate pieces of ribbon, layering them on top of each other, wrapping the center with floral wire.
