Miniature Apple Wreath

Whether you choose miniature apples like ours or full-size replicas, this wreath will look great for weeks. Don't miss our how-to video for more tips.

Celebrate the arrival of apple season with this beautiful wreath constructed with look-alikes. All you need is a flat twig wreath, artificial apples, greenery, berries, and a hot-glue gun.

First, glue small sprigs of greenery around the edges of the wreath, following the shape of the wreath. We used dried asparagus fern for our lush base.

Next, use hot glue to attach the bottom of the first apple to the top center of the heart shape. Leaving the stem pointing out creates a focal point. Then, glue the sides of the rest of the apples to the wreath, following the shape of the heart.

Once the glue is set, start to fill in the gaps between the apples with tiny sprigs of dried or artificial berries, cut short to fit in and around the apples. Use hot glue to attach them, making it look like the apples are nestled in.

To finish, fold a 9- to 10-inch ribbon in half and glue the ends onto the back of the wreath. You can try layering multiple colors of ribbon like we did, or use just one wide ribbon. Hang on your front door and enjoy!
