Add festive flair to your apartment this season by making a fall wreath. This DIY project is simple, inexpensive and sure to get you into the autumn mood. Here are some fall wreath ideas to get you inspired:
A Husky Harvest
Nothing says autumn quite like a harvest-themed fall wreath. Glue corn husks onto a pre-made Styrofoam wreath base to create a traditional circular wreath; or gather a few ears of dried corn for a rustic door decoration.
In Your Element
For a simple, elegant fall wreath, start with a pre-made twig wreath as your base. Add natural fall elements and fibers, such as pine cones, acorns, burlap and gourds.
Is your favorite part of fall is the brilliant colors of the leaves? Create a fall wreath with leaves! It can be seasonal or annual, depending on the leaves you use. For a one-time decoration, gather leaves in all colors from outside. If you want to use this again next year, find silk faux leaves at the craft store.
Rake it Out
For an eclectic take on fall decor, build a rake wreath. (Say that 10 times fast!) Rather than having a pre-made wreath base, you will wrap various materials around the head of an old rake. Find one at a thrift store and remove the top from the handle. This unconventional decoration is sure to evoke images of raking leaves outdoors.
