Autumn is just around the corner, folks! Making a farmhouse fall wreath is one of my favorite ways to slow down and embrace the start of this beautiful season. This is a hassle-free tutorial, and much of the supplies can be purchased on the cheap at dollar stores. Grab some wire cutters and follow along to join in on the autumn fun!
Fall marks the start of much hustle and bustle for many people. Some are preparing for school and holidays while others participate in fall sports and activities. As someone who aims to live simply and intentionally, I love when my home and life reflect the current season.
In autumn the trees are ridding themselves of unneeded leaves and animals are preparing for rest and hibernation. The colors of the earth turn warm and mellow, as do the colors of our homes/gardens.
Making this farmhouse fall wreath is the perfect way to welcome the crisp cool air, the falling leaves, and the warm colors that autumn brings.
Start with a Strong Base
This grapevine wreath is a nice strong base that makes the entire process extremely easy! The vines intertwine which is great for holding the flowers and leaves in place! You don’t need wire or other materials to attach the decorations.
Wrap the Burlap
Take a long piece of burlap and start with one end at the top of the wreath. Wrap the burlap evenly around the wreath, paying attention to how it folds over the base and where it lies to ensure it’s somewhat symmetrical. Once you’ve made your way back to the top, tie a knot behind the wreath to hold the burlap in place.
The key to a full and beautiful wreath is to add a significant amount of greenery! Take a few clips of your favorite leaves and arrange them in a half moon shape on one side of the wreath, as pictured. Reserve some of your greenery, as you’ll want to add more into your farmhouse fall wreath after the next step.
Farmhouse Fall Wreath Florals
Next, cut some flowers and their stems off of a bush, and stick them into the wreath within the greenery. I used chrysanthemums and made three groups of three. Once the flowers have been added, take a step back from the wreath to assess whether you’ll need to fill the wreath in with more greenery.
When making wreaths for a specific season, I love using flowers that bloom during those months!

Add Fillers and other Decorations
The dollar store had adorable tiny pumpkins with clips that make them a breeze to incorporate! They also had galvanized signs, berries, and ribbon you could add. I personally used some dried baby’s breath to fill in the wreath and left it at that!
Hanging your Farmhouse Fall Wreath
To hang this wreath, you can use a standard over-the-door wreath hook, or you could use a command strip! To keep it as simple as possible, I hung the wreath on a screw using one of the grape vines. For more security, you could also use wire, string, or yarn.
