Faux leaves definitely make the whole process of constructing a wreath simpler but they definitely don’t eliminate the need for creativity and customization. A good starting point can be the project featured on Revamperate. The wreath described here is easy to make and really versatile.
This tobacco basket wreath from Charleston Crafted is a unique wreath that takes a detour from the typical fall wreaths you might see on the front doors in your neighborhood.

If you make your fall wreath carefully and choose colors/textures that work well with each other, your wreath will only help make your home look nicer than it already does!

2. Faux Berry Grapevine Wreath

Aren’t the colors on this wreath just wonderful? Crafting something like this is definitely time-consuming but not that difficult. The biggest investment you’ll need to make in this wreath project is time, but luckily what you lose in time you save in money.
The list of materials is definitely unusual but wait till you check out the instructions. You’ll need to set aside plenty of time to finish this paper blossom wreath, but the final results will blow your guests away.
Nuts are a popular addition to many fall wreaths, and this nut wreath from the Farmer’s Almanac makes use of several different nut types to add plenty of texture and visual interest to its design. Get a few mixed bags of hazelnuts, pecans, and almonds, and add some acorn caps for an eclectic look that is sure to get compliments.

3. Pinecones and Burlap Fall Wreath

But let’s have a look at a few more Halloween-ish designs as well, like the one featured on DIYs. To make it, you need a styrofoam wreath form, strips of fabric, push pins, and decorative ornaments like skulls, black feathers, spiders, bats, and other things.
You know it’s fall when you start thinking about hanging a wreath on your front door. But don’t go to the wreath store just yet. This year, how about you craft the fall wreath yourself?

4. Acorns and Burlap Wreath

Use tiny pine cones to fill in the gaps. Use burlap and orange ribbon to attach the wreath to the door. This is a simple fall wreath design, but the materials are sturdy enough to hold up for several years of decorating if you store it carefully. {found on Keep Calm and Decorate}.
Using real flowers, leaves, and berries is definitely appealing, especially when you can find them all in your garden or back yard. However, if you want the wreath to last, opt for faux branches instead.
This wreath is a perfect gift to give a special teacher or academic in your life. You could also decorate the board with family mottos or fall-inspired chalk illustrations.

5. Grapevine Faux Leaf Wreath

Here’s what you have to do: first, get a foam wreath form and cover it with burlap. Then take apples of various sizes and hot glue them onto the wreath one by one. So simple and so delicious.
Here you can find out how to make a modern and chic wreath by dipping coffee filters in food coloring dye. The whole process is actually simpler than it seems.
Here are a few additional tips for keeping your fall wreaths affordable:

6. Letter Stencil Grapevine Fall Wreath

Fall Monogram Door Wreath
Explore your gloomy side with a spider web wreath. To make it, you need a simple wreath form and some fluffy black yarn. Black yarn that has been shot through with metallic thread (such as silver) also looks flashy in this wreath design.

7. Grapevine Flower Wreath

At the end, add a black felt bow and some cute ornament of your choice. Using darker-colored leaves at the bottom and lighter-colored leaves at the top gives this wreath a pleasing ombre design that is reminiscent of changing autumn leaves. {found on Everyday Dishes}
For the wreath described on Consumer Crafts, you’ll be using a different kind of stick. To make something similar, you’ll need lots of cinnamon sticks, a grapevine wreath, and a hot glue gun. The process is simple but long.
The lace spider web wreaths we found on The Thriftress could also become the focal point of your front door during this period. To make them, you need a large embroidery hoop and several small ones as well as black spray paint, lace and decorative spiders. A black bird ornament can be the detail that completes the look.

8. Faux Branch Fall Wreath

This black tissue paper Halloween wreath from Rocky Mountain Bliss can be created for just a few dollars. All you need for supplies are black tissues, some hot glue, white glue, cardboard, and a centerpiece decoration such as a skull or raven.
A similar option is to use acorns. An acorn wreath would look rustic and really lovely if you also use some burlap to make a nice bow for it. The design featured on Consumer Crafts is perfect in this sense.
Faux leaves fall wreath

9. Faux Leaf and Burlap Wreath

A thick straw wreath is a good foundation for dried chilies since the chilies can be fragile. Be sure to pile on plenty of chilies so there aren’t any gaps in the design.
You can easily cut the tissue paper into consistent four-by-four-inch squares by folding it before cutting. This Halloween wreath is a better design for indoor Halloween decorations since outdoor elements can damage the black tissue paper pretty easily.

10. Bird-Themed Grapevine Wreath

Geometric patterns and shapes are a recurrent theme in a lot of modern designs and wreaths are no exception. You can make a hexagon-shaped wreath using wooden boards.
Fall wreaths can be as expensive or as cheap to make as you want. In general, the fancier your wreath-making materials are, the more expensive the final product will be to make. To avoid a big bill for your wreath project, stick with simpler materials such as burlap over silk ribbon, and try to incorporate found objects instead of just buying everything at the craft store.

11. Floral Grapevine Wreath

So how would you imagine a modern fall wreath? Probably it wouldn’t have a conventional design. In fact, you could even replace the whole wreath design with something else, like bunting.
If you don’t like the look of the purple faux leaves in this original design at DIYs, you can replace the color purple with orange or some other fall-appropriate shade. Since the rest of the wreath design is in neutral black-and-white, whatever color you choose should match well.

12. Tiny Pumpkin Grapevine Wreath

Something as simple and basic as a paper plate holder can turn out to be the key element in a very cute and funky Halloween wreath design. Having trouble picturing the process? Check out Sadie Season Goods.
A really elegant and chic wreath design can be found on Confessions of a Serial DIYer. The project requires a grapevine wreath reinforced with pieces from another similar wreath for more depth, three decorations, a burlap ribbon, and floral wire. The decorations can be just about anything, in this case including a mini pumpkin and two large flowers.
For some, autumn and Halloween are synonyms. That means the preparations for this holiday have already started and what better way to start than with a wreath? A really cute design is the one we found on Design Improvised.

13. White Grapevine Wreath

Mix fall accessories to create a stylish Wreath
The last step is wrapping the ribbon around the wreath. This sleek black wreath looks great in a more minimalist interior design, and it’s simple enough to make for gifting wreaths. Be sure to keep the “stripes” on the wreath relatively even to create a professional-looking result.
Whenever something is described as modern, “simple” is the first term that comes to mind. Wreaths are no exception.

14. Faux Bay Leaf Wreath

It’s actually more than a single wreath. More like a whole bunch of abstract wreaths infused with the spirit of Halloween. The delicate patterns in this circle-based wreath give it a vintage appeal that is more romantic and feminine than most seasonal wreaths.
Another interesting material you can use when crafting a fall wreath is yarn. Not sure how that would work out? Check out Architecture of a Mom for some inspiration.

15. Metallic Leaf Wreath

The finishing touch is a berry ornament. Be careful to keep your burlap loops even and consistent so that your burlap wreath doesn’t end up looking shoddy.
Warm and sunny fall wreath
But let’s also take a look at a more common way in which you can use paper when crafting a wreath. A good example can be found on eHow. The wreath described there was made using brown paper bags, a styrofoam form, and a glue gun. 

16. Dried Magnolia Leaf Wreath

You may have heard people express distaste for fall wreaths on the grounds that they’re tacky or overly fussy, but a lot of these criticisms come from poorly designed or put-together wreaths. To create a homemade fall wreath that doesn’t look tacky, you need to choose the proper materials, centerpiece decorations, and design for your wreath. Taking a bunch of faux leaves and branches and just gluing them willy-nilly on a wreath will end up looking sloppy and cluttered.
After using hot glue to stick on all your wreath accessories, you can optionally use a varnish or gloss sealer to help keep your nut wreath looking nice every autumn after you store it in the winter.
The burlap strips are threaded through the wire and then spaced out evenly. Feel free to decorate your burlap ruffle wreath in any way you want.

17. Faux White Pumpkin Wreath

You can use yarn to connect them in order to get the actual wreath form which, by the way, doesn’t have to be round. A square or rectangular wreath such as the one featured on Sisters What would look quite interesting.
You need a grapevine wreath, black spray paint, a hot glue gun, a faux black bird, black ribbon and black and white feathers, and faux flowers and grasses. Even with the dark coloring of this fall wreath, the white faux flower keeps it looking delicate and stylish. 

18. Square Stick Wreath

Framed Chalkboard fall Wreath
This fall ombre rosette wreath at Flamingo Toes is perfect if you’re trying to make a DIY wreath with a touch of sophistication. While the materials in this wreath such as graduated printed fabrics might be a little more expensive than more rustic fall wreaths, it is well worth the money to make this beautiful centerpiece for your door.
The ruffles on this wreath are hard to ignore given how funky they look. The base for the wreath is a wire hanger that was formed into a circle shape.

19. Felt Leaf Wreath

There are so many great ways in which you can use burlap on wreaths that we decided to present you with several different options and to let you pick the one that works best for you. The first option is a project we found on Crafts ‘n Coffee for a square-shaped wreath.
If you want to craft a wreath that’s actually symbolic for the autumn season, try to include materials that send this type of message. The leaves, twigs, and pinecones described so far are all great options but there are also tons of others just waiting for your approval.

20. Sunburst Branch Wreath

Paper can be used for a lot of interesting DIY projects. But for the one we found on Blue Sky Confections you’ll actually be using paper plates. You need around 50 of them as well as a grapevine wreath, some coffee, craft glue, cookie sprinkles, and ribbon.

21. Cinnamon Stick Wreath

Wheat Wreath
Many people associate wreaths with Christmas, but the truth is that there are different DIY and crafted wreaths you can use to adorn your front door or your household walls for any season or holiday. Fall wreaths are a great way to incorporate seasonal arrangements into your home as well as a way to show off your flair for home crafts. The great thing about DIY seasonal wreaths is that they can help you set a mood for your home no matter what time of year it is.

22. Multicolored Wheat Wreath

White painted Grapevine wreath
If you want to craft a wreath that’s best described by the term “cute”, have a look at the idea offered on Homecraftsbyali. The owl is simply adorable and the letter stencils are perfect for sending a message to everyone who knocks on your door.

23. Garland Wheat Wreath

Buffalo Plaid Farmhouse Wreath
A bunch of fake leaves and berries and attached to it, but not before being spray painted using metallic colors. They look really lovely and the wreath looks similar to a basket full of leaves.

24. Straw and Wheat Wreath

It shows how you can use a grapevine wreath form, small acorn decorations, gold glimmer mist, and burlap to create the perfect decoration for your front door. Using acorns as the primary material for this wreath gives it a uniform look that pairs well with more modern decorating schemes.
To avoid this, here are a few tips for keeping your homemade fall wreath design looking classy:

25. Copper Pipe Wreath

Fall Acorn Wreath DIY
If you have the time, you’d better start cutting a lot of felt leaves in different colors. You can then use them to decorate a wreath form. Alternate the colors and follow a pattern.

26. Birch Wood Wreath

This is one of the cheaper fall wreaths you can put together. Cover a foam wreath foam in burlap or muslin and then cut orange, yellow, and white canvas fabric into small sections which you attach to the wreath with straight pins.
Want something a bit more feminine? Check out the design on Freshly Completed. Start with a wire wreath and three flower arrangements.

27. Multi-colored Yarn Wreath

Alternate the colors, and the finishing touch is a green felt leaf. This wreath is perfect for a comfy-yet-contemporary interior.
Sure, not all Halloween wreaths have to look spooky. The design featured on Our Best Bites is a really lovely option and all you need to make it is a wreath form and black tulle. You can then decorate it with fabric flowers and ornaments in bright colors such as purple or orange.
You can also use full branches to give the wreath a full look. Check out Nouthern Hospitality Blog for more info on how to get this project done.

28. Painted Clothespin Wreath

Add a large ribbon to it as a final touch. This wreath can add a lot of texture to your decor without looking garish since it is decked out in neutral earth tones.

30. Pumpkin and Hydrangea Wreath

Those that prefer simplicity should find the burlap wreath featured on Create Craft Love most charming. To make your own version, wrap burlap around a styrofoam wreath form.
The materials needed are a plain grapevine wreath, five fall-inspired decorations, burlap, hemp cord, and a hot glue gun. Check out the instructions and adapt the design to your preferences.

31. Square Burlap Wreath

You only need a few little twigs to create a great-looking wreath. This is exemplified on North Story where you can find out how to make a twig wreath decorated with felt leaves. Use felt in fall-inspired colors such as brown, yellow, orange, or dark green.
You’ll also need some burlap and a hot glue gun. Cut the burlap into strips and glue it around the wire form. Twist and pouf as you go.
For instructions on how to create the spider web, check out Kaminnski’s Creations. You can also make some cute little spider decorations from scratch if you want.

32. Twisted Burlap Wreath

You have to glue each cinnamon stick to the wreath in a random pattern until you cover the whole surface. The result will be a fall wreath that not only looks beautiful but also smells great.
Another interesting design for a modern wreath can be found on At the Picket Fence. It’s pretty much just a framed chalkboard decorated with a bow and some dried leaves or branches. The lovely thing about this idea is that you can personalize this so-called wreath with a lot of cute messages.
Wooden Hexagon Fall Wreath Design
Similarly, you can use black felt, orange felt, Halloween-themed ribbon, and dress pins to make a lovely-looking wreath. Start with a styrofoam form. Cover it in black felt and then cut a few strips of orange felt and pin them in place.

33. Looped Burlap Wreath

An interesting combination of materials and design techniques can be found on A Beautiful Mess. The wreath featured here can be crafted using a bunch of twigs and a series of pom-poms.
You’ll need craft paint or watercolor paint to give the leaves the beautiful colors you see here. You’ll be attaching the leaves one by one to a wreath form making sure not to leave any open spaces.
We’ll also add embroidery hoops to the list of materials that can be used when crafting unique wreaths because, as Tater Tots and Jello shows us, they’re a really great choice. To make this wreath you need a 10” embroidery hoop, linen or fabric, embroidery thread, felt, and a burlap garland.

35. Burlap and Lace Fall Wreath

Candy corn fall wreath
Fabric flowers are glued on at the very end. The combination of burlap and lace is an interesting one since burlap is associated with rough country decor and lace is associated with vintage or retro looks. Together they provide an interesting clash of textures, but the neutral colors of both materials help mesh them together well.
Felt ornaments and decorations are quite popular. There are lots of great DIY projects you can try that require felt. On Nest of Posies we found a really cute wreath design that uses colorful felt leaves to stand out.

36. Funky Burlap Ruffle Wreath

Happy Fall Wreath Letters
This wreath is a fun one to make with kids since they enjoy playing with the faux cobwebs. You can also skip the lettering and choose a different centerpiece instead if you choose, such as a skull or a raven.
For some reason, black crows are quite symbolic of Halloween. They’re actually pretty cute and really intelligent once you come to know them better. On DIYs you can find out how to make a Halloween wreath that uses this symbol.
Berries are another good resource you can use when crafting a fall wreath. Creole in DC offers a lovely example of how such a wreath would look like. You can start with a simple grapevine wreath and then glue large berries onto it.

40. Candy Corn Fall Wreath

Crafting a good-looking wheat wreath can actually be very simple and very enjoyable. If you wrap the stems of the wheat in the same direction that the wreath twists in you’ll get a design that looks pretty much like the one we found on Houseful of Handmade. Once you’re done with that part, feel free to add decorations such as garlands, bows, and other things.

42. Framed Chalkboard Fall Wreath

A fall wreath is a crafted decoration (usually homemade but sometimes bought from another crafter or store) that is used to help transition your regular home decorations into a seasonal theme. Fall wreaths are usually created as a crafting project and they’re popular to make with children, who especially enjoy their own child-sized grapevine wreaths along with the wreath for the front door.
Grow Creative Blog offers one of the simplest and most ingenious wreath designs. The idea proposed here is to use a wire wreath form and a bunch of colored clothespins to create an eye-catching wreath. You just have to clip the clothespins on without needing any glue.
Using twigs and branches is quite common when crafting wreaths but how often do you see a wreath made of large pieces of birch wood?

You can also get different types of candy corn that incorporate other colors if you’re trying to match a pre-existing color scheme in your home.
Most people put out their fall wreaths in September and October. Halloween wreaths are typically put out a few weeks before Halloween when the rest of the Halloween decorations come out. It’s a good idea to take down your Halloween wreath and replace it with a traditional fall wreath after the holiday passes.
Another great wheat wreath is described on Daisy Marbelle. The supplies needed for this one include a straw wreath, three bundles of dried wheat, and burlap ribbon. As you can see, the whole process requires a super small budget and leaves plenty of room for customization.

It just takes looking at potential crafting materials in a slightly different way. You can get a ceiling medallion for around ten dollars, so this wreath is a great way to end up with a professional product without investing a bunch of money in the project.
Brown Paper Bag Leaf Wreath with Blossoms
There’s no need to cover the entire wreath in leaves if you want to make a statement. In fact, if you use fewer leaves there’s a better chance that they’ll stand out in an elegant and stylish way. And since you’ll be using a grapevine wreath, you can add a few bird decorations as well to make it look like a cute nest. {found on Lady Face Blog}.

47. Coffee Dyed Paper Blossom Fall Wreath

If you want to put out seasonal fall decor but you don’t want to put a ton of time and effort into it, this simple fall wreath is the way to go.

Another interesting wreath design, this time using actual paper, can be found on Houseologie. It’s a starburst wreath that’s pretty easy to make. You should also use a piece of plywood for the back. The key element is the way you decorate the wreath after you’re finished crafting it.

52. Masking Tape DIY BOO Halloween Wreath

You’ll be making a circular wreath form out of cardboard. The contrast between the rough-looking twigs and the delicate pom-poms is what gives this wreath its unique character.
You can pretty much find pine cones everywhere you look during autumn. So it wouldn’t be such a big problem to gather a few so you can use them when crafting the wreath you’ve been dreaming about. Start with a styrofoam wreath. Spray paint it and then start hot gluing the pine cones one by one.

The design of the wreath featured on The Magic Onions is very cozy and that’s because of the materials that were used. To make something similar you’ll need felt raving, a foam wreath, green felt, and a sewing needle. Arrange the raving in long strips and wrap each one around the foam form.

57. Black Crow Wreath

If you want to add a little spice to your fall decor, this dried chili pepper wreath at Jonathan Fong Style is a great way to do it.

58. Lace Spiderweb Wreath

Another way in which you can add a spooky touch to your Halloween wreath is with some moss, a black bird and a spooky sign. What we’re describing now is the project on I Heart Nap Time.  The process goes like this: first you wrap yarn around the foam wreath, then you wrap some black lace as well and you add a few fabric flowers.
Maybe fall flowers are not as colorful and delicate-looking as the spring or summer ones but they can definitely add a fresh touch to a wreath.

This Halloween candy wreath at Living a Vida Holoka is a little bit different than your typical Halloween wreath, but it’s also one of the easiest to make. Chances are if you’re getting ready for Halloween, you’ve already got several bags of colorful pre-wrapped candy lying around for trick-or-treaters.
The design featured on Love of Family and Home is somewhat similar to the previous one but, at the same time, quite different. In this case, the burlap strips loop around the wire wreath form. Each section has three loops. You can use different colors of burlap for variety.

66. Festive Fall Nut Wreath

You can trace any style of leaf, but oak and maple leaves look appropriate for fall. If you want to add a little flair to your book leaves, try staining them with tea to make them look antique.

Abstract Halloween Wreath

67. Book Page Fall Wreath

Fall wreaths are a great way to incorporate found materials if you collect branches, fallen leaves, acorns, and other found objects in your yard or on hikes. Spraying found objects like faux leaves and acorns with a clear varnish can help keep them looking fresh for months on your homemade wreaths if you’re worried about them breaking down over time. 
Magnolia leaves are perfect for fall wreaths. They can be arranged in a lot of interesting ways and patterns.

Fall Wreath FAQ

Are Fall Wreaths Tacky?

At first, you’ll basically just have to wrap yarn around a foam wreath form until you cover it entirely. Then you can add whatever ornaments and decorations you want.
This monochromatic look is also a smart autumn look for homes that have a modern or contemporary aesthetic.

  • Less is more. For more simple wreaths, be sure not to add too many extra pieces. Otherwise, it may end up looking thrown together rather than a deliberate design. Wreaths are like outfits – one of the best ways to look like you aren’t trying too hard is to pick out your accessories, then put a few back.
  • Keep things consistent. If you’re putting together a fall wreath that has the same material all the way around, whether it’s nuts or burlap, you will want to keep everything looking balanced from one end of the wreath to the other. In some designs, it’s okay for the wreath to look a little bottom heavy with a focal point decoration, but otherwise, if you’re hot gluing things onto your wreath, you’ll want to keep things looking even all the way around to avoid an amateur arts-and-crafts look.
  • Check out the colors in the rest of your house. If your house is decorated in cool blues and greens, you won’t want to choose colors in your wreath that clash. Instead, choose complementary colors from the opposite side of the color wheel or pick matching colors for a more monochromatic vibe. When in doubt, decorating your wreath in neutral colors will match any interior or exterior design your home already has.
  • Stick to a color scheme. A handy guide is to use three discrete colors plus a shade of one of the colors you’re already using. This will help keep your wreath looking unified. If you’re using patterned materials, try to stick to one pattern and then incorporate colors within it as your solids.

The tulle is a good look for more feminine or romantic interior design schemes. Using feathers and silk roses as accent materials helps keep the entire project looking soft and touchable.

What Themes Are Traditional for a Fall Wreath?

  • Halloween: Halloween wreaths are a great way to decorate for the spookiest month of the year, and they’re also a good indicator to the neighborhood that you’re a house to stop at for trick-or-treating. Halloween decor on the outside of your home helps trick-or-treaters know if you celebrate the holiday or not.
  • Fall flowers: Floral arrangements aren’t as popular in the fall as they are in the spring and summer. However, faux flowers that are symbolic of fall, such as sunflowers and mums, are a great way to incorporate florals into your home decor all year without having to worry about cold fall nights killing them off.
  • Harvest: Many fall wreaths revolve around a harvest or woodland theme, and these wreaths are usually heavy on forest found objects such as branches, faux leaves, nuts, and faux berry twigs. Faux mini pumpkins are also a popular accessory. Harvest-themed fall wreaths are probably one of the most popular types due to this type of wreath dating all the way back to ancient Greece.
  • Farmhouse: Farmhouse fall wreaths tend to incorporate materials found on farms such as burlap, straw, dried Indian corn, and wheat stalks. These wreaths look awesome with rustic decor and can help spruce up an otherwise simple country exterior.

  • Watch for sales. Buying your crafting supplies on sale can save you hundreds of dollars over the course of the season. Just don’t go overboard buying stuff you “think” you’ll need, because otherwise you’ll end up spending a bunch of money on supplies you won’t actually use.
  • Buy in bulk. Certain fall crafting supplies like faux leaves and burlap ribbon are smart to buy in bulk. These items don’t go bad and come in handy for a wide range of different fall crafting products, so buying them in bulk should save you money in the long run.
  • Reuse your wreaths. The cost of making fall wreaths will really build up if you decide you want to make new wreaths every year, so make a point to take care of your old wreaths by storing them in protective containers in the off-season and making sure they don’t get damaged by mice or moths. This is especially the case if you end up building an expensive wreath.

Using the standard materials is definitely very convenient, regardless of what you plan on crafting. But if you want the final product to really stand out, you need to look for alternatives.
