5 Beautiful Ways to Update a Basic Twig Wreath for Fall

We started with a 5 dollar twig wreath and made these stunning fall displays. There's something for every style!

Twig wreaths are a staple of fall decor, whether they hang on a door, a wall, or a mantel. However, the prettiest of fall wreaths can cost a pretty penny and there's no guarantee that this year's trend will be in style next season. Making your own wreath lets you change the decor as the years go on or commit to making a timeless, traditional look.

To help you craft your own autumn decor, we created five gorgeous wreaths that all start with the same inexpensive twig wreath. Take a look below to discover your favorite, then click on the how-to for step-by-step instructions.

Blooming Beauty

Full, lush, and colorful, this wreath embodies everything we love about fall foliage. Starting with a base of deep red leaves, followed by layers of oversized blooms, and finished off with berries, this wreath could not hold more autumn elements even if we tried. Get this bountiful look and learn the trick of layering with our detailed steps. Options for personalizing include adding pinecones, holly, favorite ornaments, and more. 

All Tied Up

Bare twigs certainly make a fall statement, so we decided to make one wreath that allowed its natural elements to do the talking. The wreath is bare with the exception of one bundle of magnolia leaves in a lower corner. Faux fall foliage is spaced evenly amongst the leaves while an extra-large bow sits on top. We used a burlap ribbon for its natural look and choose to let the tails hang long and loose. Get the how-to here. 

Bundle of Fall

The beauty of fall wreaths is that you can start with a base of deep greens and grays and the color scheme still allows for pops of orange or yellow. This twig wreath started off with little life, but by adding layers of eucalyptus, we created a full green look that blossoms at the top. Faux succulents add a trendy element to the wreath as the plants spring out from several directions. Billy balls put a quirky twist on traditional fall florals.

Country Inspiration

Fall harvest time reminds us of long drives through acres of cornfields. Our next fall wreath is inspired by those stunning views filled with wheat, cotton, and fluffy cattails. All those countryside elements build beautifully from the center of this twig wreath and extend up the sides. An oversized white flower in the middle creates a focal point for the design. Use our instructions to learn how to build this gorgeous wreath. 

Shades of Green

This wreath is a great way to transition your decor from fall to winter. Mixed greenery works well for both seasons and is fun to assemble in this layered design. Leaves spring out from all ends as different textures and shades are used. Keep adding more into the natural twig base until you are satisfied with the overall look. Learn how to make it here.
