Fall Metallic Floral Door Wreath Decor

Thank you all so much for the kind words about my big announcement yesterday. Your kindness and thoughtful comments really helped me get through one of the most stressful days I’ve had lately. You all are amazing, and your thoughtfulness doesn’t go unnoticed.

Sappy moment over.

Thrilled to be here with a 10 minute fall wreath craft. There used to be a time when I really loved creating a wreath, but honestly I felt they took a lot of time and money. However, I decided to make a non-traditional version using stuff I had on hand already.

An eclectic DIY take on a fall wreath using simple supplies. Takes less than 10 minutes. The color combo of ivory, black, blush and metallics is chic and fun.

I’d like to thank Ariel from PMQ for Two for hosting this wreath hop and helping get my butt in gear to create/make something. Sometimes I have crafters block.

The supplies are simple, the results chic and of course, there’s a bit of bling.

Let’s get started.

Supplies
-4 large bundles/bouquets of faux florals
-4-6 feathers
-Zip tie
-A container/vase/vessel
-Metallic washi tape
-Wreath hanger
-Ribbon
-Double-sided tape

An eclectic DIY take on a fall wreath using simple supplies. Takes less than 10 minutes. The color combo of ivory, black, blush and metallics is chic and fun.

Step 1: Fluff up your florals and join them all together using a zip tie. Continue to fluff the individual components around until it looks aesthetically pleasing. My bouquet ended up being a bit too tall, so I simply bent the bottom to make it fit the half-moon copper pail I was using.

Step 2: Use some metallic washi tape (or other decorative tape) to add some oomph to your container/vessel. I thought the copper by itself looked a bit too farmhouse for the look I wanted, so some simple stripes add a touch of contrast and interest.

Step 3 (Optional): Grab a wreath hanger and cut some ribbon to size to cover the metal part. You can adhere it with a few strips of double-sided tape. The gold finish of my wreath hanger totally clashed with the other colors, so a simple black satin ribbon and scrapbook buckle cover that icky gold right up.

Step 4: Place the flowers in the container, stick the feathers in, hook it onto the wreath hanger and hang on the door. Ta-dah!

I love the eclectic feel, and I’m so crushing on mauve/blush colors right now accented with metallics. The great thing is that none of this is permanent, so it’s easy to repurpose all these components elsewhere at a later date.

  4. Hi Monica,

    I am with ya! Making wreaths used to be overwhelming based on the amount of time and money involved. No more. I love the way you incorporated items from your home to create a fabulous wreath. The feathers are a great touch!

  5. Hey Monica...So great that you can reuse everything! Perfect. I agree with you that those dang wreaths can get exorbitant, which is crazy talk since they're sitting outside for a couple months. Love how you created a great 'wreath' at a realistic budget.
    Have a great weekend.

    Hugs, Lynn
