DIY Autumnal Wreaths That Replace The Welcome Mat

When the leaves begin to change, we know it’s time to start breaking out the fall décor – and there’s no better place to start than your front door. To add a touch of warmth to your welcome home, try making one of these easy autumn wreaths.

What You’ll Need:

  • Natural Grapevine Wreath (18” recommended)
  • Silk Fall Flowers and Fall Leaves
  • Wooden Letter(s)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Other accessories: ribbon, burlap, pinecones, twine etc.,


Step 1: Visit your local craft store to purchase a natural grapevine wreath and your accessories, or to make it more of a fun experience, take a nature hike and pull some accessories off the trail.

Step 2: Lay your flowers, leaves, and other accessories on the wreath. This will give you a general idea of what your finished product will look like. Fiddle with the layout until you get it just right.

Step 3: Begin gluing your accessories onto the wreath with a hot glue gun. Be very careful not to get any of the hot glue on yourself, ouch!

Step 4: Hot glue typically sets within 5-30 seconds. However, leave your wreath on a flat service for a few minutes after completion to fully dry.

Step 5: Proudly hang your masterpiece on the front door  (or even over your mantle).

That’s it! This is an easy way of personalizing your fall décor, that’s sure to make everyone feel welcome.
