5 Beautiful Ways to Update a Twig Wreath for Fall

What You Need

  • Twig wreath
  • Craft wire
  • Wire snips
  • Magnolia leaves
  • Floral wire
  • Hot glue
  • Small fall flowers
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Scissors


Step 1: Form Hook

Before you add all the elements to your fall wreath, you should add a hook to the back for hanging. Snip a piece of craft wire and bend it in half. Then, fold each end back up toward the top as shown.

Step 2: Attach Hook

Push the two ends of the hook down and through a small bundle of twigs. Pull up and twist the ends onto themselves to secure. Hold the wreath by the hook to test strength. 

Step 3: Attach Magnolia Leaves

Once your hook is secure, cut faux magnolia leaves to size. You'll want one to two leaves per stem so you have good control of where the leaves will lie. Pick one point on the wreath to be the focus, and place the stems so the leaves fall in opposite directions away from the center. Secure leaves with floral wire.

Step 4: Add Flowers

Next add delicate white flowers to the mix. We strategically placed flowers at the stems of the magnolia leaves to disguise where the floral wire attaches to the twigs. To secure the flowers, use a dab of hot glue on the cut stem, stick it into the twig wreath, and hold until glue is dry. 

Step 5: Add Bow

To finish this DIY fall wreath, add a large bow to the center of the leaves and flowers. The bow will cover the remaining visible stems and wire, and also give it the perfect farmhouse finishing touch. Go the extra mile and use burlap ribbon as your bow fabric. It looks gorgeous and is appropriate for the season. The thick, sturdy fabric easily holds a bow shape.
