I love the look of a pretty fall wreath, but I just could not justify spending upwards of $30-$50 (or more) on something that would adorn my door for only a few months out of the year. So I started scouting around in various stores for pieces to try and make my own.
And low and behold I found all these little pretties at WalMart for under $10!!
You can easily make your own beautiful fall wreath
The grapevine wreath was $4.99 and each of the decor items were $1.34. What I like about about the little items is that you can take them apart if you want to make lots of little pieces to spread out all over the wreath. This gives you a lot more pieces to move around and fully customize your wreath. For this project I chose to keep one of them whole and I broke up the other two.
Next is the fun part! Now it’s up to you how to arrange them on the wreath. Since the grapevine is like a bunch of thin sticks formed into a circle, there’s a lot of nooks and crannies you can stick the stems into without having to use super glue or anything. I’m keeping this on our door in the laundry room that’s right off the kitchen for now. However, if this was going outside I’d probably secure them a bit more. I’m sure a nice gust of wind would blow some of them off.
And voila! Not too bad for a cheap and easy DIY project, if I do say so myself. It only took me about of 5-10 minutes to make this pretty fall wreath. I may make a few more of these for other doors in our house. I can’t wait to try and make some for other seasons and holidays as well.
