Leaf and Marigold Fall Wreath

Wreath made of fall leaves
Helen Norman

Opt for faux leaves and twigs to create a long-lasting fall wreath, or choose dried finds if you want a more natural look. Dried marigolds nestle into this natural wreath outfitted with vibrant fall colors. Start by covering a foam wreath with Spanish moss, then stick in leaves, alternating the colors for variety. Green pins help keep the leaves in place.

Branching Out

Wreath made of green and red plants

Craft a natural fall wreath that appears gathered from the woods. Cover an 18-inch wreath base with sheet moss, wrapping it with florists wire. Secure gnarled magnolia stems to the mossy base. Use hot glue to attach sprigs of huckleberry or other leaves. Complete the design with clusters of burgundy hypericum berries, leucadendron flowers, and nearly black Aeonium 'Zwartkop,' all wired in place.

Square Succulent Wreath

Edmund Barr

Break the cycle of ordinary round wreaths by crafting a square arrangement. This succulent masterpiece is given sturdy support by a pair of 14-inch square wreath bases. Fill the forms with sheet moss, sandwich them together, and wrap with wire. Use wooden picks with wire attached to secure larger succulents. For the smaller plants, make liberal use of florists glue, which adheres to a variety of surfaces.

Wheat Wreath

To make this natural fall wreath, trim dried wheat so that the stems are 1 inch long. Hot-glue wheat stems to the wreath form, overlapping tassels as you go. Create a spiral effect by keeping the tassels pointed in the same direction. Tuck in sprigs of bittersweet and purple broom corn, then glue them in place.

New Twist on a Twig Wreath

Square wreath made of branches and plants

Make an interesting rustic wreath from bundles of birch twigs bound into a square with paper-wrapped wire. Capture the essence of the harvest in an unexpected way with millet seed heads, wheat stalks, and ripe sunflower heads (with all the petals plucked off). Wire the flowers and foliage together like a handheld bouquet, then attach it to the wreath. Add even more texture with billy balls, variegated euonymus, and succulents.

Go Neutral

Table with gourds and wreath
Blaine Moats

Stalks of oats, millet, and ornamental grasses fill out this wheat wreath, which looks just as lovely hanging above a mantel or sideboard as it does on a front door. Gourds play with other textured naturals like grasses, beeswax, and woven rush. Here, the speckled orange and green skins lend the right amount of color to a grouping of neutral home decor.

Bittersweet Wreath

Wreath above fireplace with pumpkins
Kritsada Panichgul

A grapevine wreath spray-painted white forms the perfect canvas for bittersweet's vivid colors. Entwine bittersweet vines between and around the wreath branches, securing with wire where needed. Pair with gourds in similar shades above a mantel for a festive fall display.

Marigold Wreath

Wreath made of orange marigolds
Adam Albright

There are many more ways to display fall flowers than just sticking them into a vase. To recreate this floral fall wreath, add an abundance of cut marigolds to a grapevine wreath. Although you could use any type of flower, bright orange marigolds look especially pretty when paired with the dark wreath form and gourds.

Sunny Display

Scour your yard for a collection of tiny twigs to use in this fall wreath. With florist's glue, attach the twigs to a metal wreath form. Secure sprigs of forsythia in using a hot-glue gun. Let it dry and hang it on your door, over the mantel, or on a wall.

Natural Tones

Wreath made of leaves, branches, seed pods, and pinecones
Kim Cornelison

Try a monochromatic arrangement to create a wreath that will last for years to come. Purchase a basic grapevine wreath from your local home center or crafts store, and attach dried artichokes, lotus pods, and pinecones at one end. Nestle gold-tinted leaves between the twigs and adhere them with a hot-glue gun.

Forest Filler

Wreath made of fall leaves and seed pods

Make a Maize Wreath

Carson Downing

Corn husks are so much more than fodder for the compost pile. Wrap dampened husks (tamale wrappers from the grocery store will work) around a straw wreath form and attach them with T-pins, overlapping pieces until the entire form is hidden. Secure the final layer—we used all Indian corn husks for bold color—with hot glue.

Fields of Gold

Wreath on light blue door made with grass
Greg Scheidemann

Bring luster to a traditional harvest wreath with metallic spray paint. Divide one bunch of dried wheat into three groups. Use a light touch to paint each group in a different finish (we used gold, copper, and brass). Tuck the stalks into a purchased wheat wreath and hang.

Festive Fall Flowers

Fall colors wreath made of flowers
Andre' Baranowski

Late-blooming chrysanthemums are the perfect way to bring the beauty of fall into your home. This stunning autumn wreath is a collection of autumnal-hued golden, maroon, and burnt sienna mums. Because the flowers in this arrangement are real, saturate a foam wreath base with water, then stick the mums into it. To create a wreath with more staying power, use dried blooms.

Berry Burst

Wreath of pinecones pomegranates
Matthew Mead

Add holiday color to your home with the vibrant hues of winterberry and pomegranates. Using a wood skewer, pierce a hole through the base of each pomegranate and thread florists wire through. Wire the pomegranates around a grapevine wreath covered in sheet moss. Add crimson bursts of winterberry branches between evenly spaced pine cones, securing everything with hot glue.

In a Nutshell

Wreath of nut shells with pumpkins
Adam Albright

Not all fall wreaths have to be suspended outside. Display this nut wreath on a fireplace mantel or entryway console table so you can enjoy its beauty every day. To add a pop of color to the neutral hues, place gourds around the base as decor.

Go Green

Wreath with dark green leaves and fruits
Victor Schrager

Combine greenery with fall color accents, such as fruits, nuts, or small pumpkins or gourds. This arrangement showcases Bosc pears, winter citrus, walnuts, and acorns. With a simple wreath of greenery, you can replace the fall accents with wintry counterparts later in the season.
