How To Make A Fall Double Wreath ~ Detailed step-by-step photo tutorial showing how to make this gorgeous wreath for the fall season for your front door.
I just finished making this Fall Double Wreath which is now hanging on the front door. I love it! Don’t the Fall colours stand out against the black front door? Here is a photo tutorial showing you step-by-step how I made it so you can make something similar too!
I’m really proud of the end product and here is…
How To Make A Fall Double Wreath – The Instructions
- 1 larger willow wreath – This was the most expensive item but I got it half price at Michaels with a coupon. A larger grapevine wreath also works.
- 1 smaller grapevine wreath – This will be attached on top of the larger wreath.
- bunches of good quality silk flowers – I had three different types to work with: fern leaves, maple leaf leaves, variety of fall looking flowers. I bought the silk plants in bunches because it is a lot cheaper than buying single flowers. Then I just cut them apart with a wire cutter. My colour scheme was rust, red, yellow, orange, brown, purple
- wire cutter to cut the bunches apart – I just had a small wire cutter which really didn’t do the job so I spent the money to buy a larger one and I am glad I did.
- glue gun – I just inserted the silk flowers into the two wreaths but I also further secured them with dollops of glue.
- floral wire – This was used to secure the two wreaths together.
- ribbon – I used red, purple and orange sheer wired ribbon.
- scissors – These were used to cut the ribbon.
What was the Cost to Make the Wreath?
It has hard to give a specific cost but I estimate that it was about $50.00 to $60.00 (CDN) to make.
Step 1 – Attach the first set of fern flowers by tucking them into the larger wreath and further secure each one with a dab of hot glue.
Step 2 – Attach the second type of fern leaf flowers and further secure each leaf with a dab of hot glue.
Step 3 – Now do the same thing with the maple leaf flowers. The larger wreath is now complete. Notice that I attached the leaves in different directions randomly but quite evenly around the wreath.
Step 4 – Now secure an assortment of silk flowers to the smaller grapevine wreath. In this wreath there is no pattern but I tried to make sure the colours were evenly spread around the wreath. I also further secured each flower with a hidden dab of glue. Notice that you can hardly see the smaller grapevine wreath because it is so full of flowers.
Step 5 – Now attach the smaller wreath to the larger wreath. I just used floral wire to connect the two wreaths at four different points so nothing would move or come apart.
Step 6 – I also used floral wire to make and secure the bow to the top wreath.
Here’s a close-up of the bow. Notice it is made of three different types of ribbon matching the colours in the wreath.
And that’s it! Pretty easy and quite doable, even for the non-crafty person.
Here is a picture showing the two wreaths together and how full it is.
This is what it looks like hanging on the front door. I have to admit the bright fall colours looking stunning with the black door as the backdrop!
This is what it looks like as you are walking up to the front door.
I just love fall! It is one of my favourite seasons!
