DIY Fall Hydrangea Wreath

| |

Fall is coming and what better time than now to fancy up your front door with a super easy DIY fall hydrangea wreath?! With just a few simple steps, following my beginner tutorial, you’ll have an adorable welcome wreath for fall in no time!

This hydrangea wreath DIY is so simple, I’m hesitant to even share it with you! But I’ve had friends who’ve seen it that think they can’t make it, so I’ll spill my easy secrets. It is SO easy and doable. Don’t be intimidated at all!

I have used a store-bought fall wreath the past few years. And it was lovely and worked great, but I’m always a girl who wants to change up decor, so I decided to make a new one for my front door.

I love how this fall decoration doesn’t necessarily scream orange pumpkins and you can go ahead and display it any time of the year – with or without the “give thanks” sign!

I was originally inspired by some gorgeous real dried hydrangea wreaths. But since I have no way to procuring these gorgeous blooms, I decided to try my hand at the fake stuff. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s kind of how I roll with my black thumb and all. Maybe someday I’ll have fresh flowers in my yard, but until then the floral section at Hobby Lobby is my jam. (Update: I now have gorgeous Hydrangeas in my yard, but I would still use faux flowers for this wreath so it will last for years to come!)

What you’ll need for a Simple Hydrangea Wreath

This is so super easy, it’s going to blow your mind.

Steps to Make a Fall DIY Hydrangea Wreath

1. Gather Your Supplies

Take your grapevine wreath base and set it down on a flat surface.

See?! It’s already so not hard!

Use a new or recycled grapevine wreath for your DIY fall wreath. I recycled an old wreath from my wedding.

I used an old wreath that was my favorite spring wreath. My mom made two of them for my wedding to put on the doors outside of the church.

I loved this thing! But over the years it’s gotten dirty and sad, so it just didn’t look good anymore. So, I up-cycled it.

Bring home your floral blooms and arrange them in a pretty place and take a picture, because they are just so cute! Well, you don’t have to, but I did. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cut down the stem to 12 inches for the DIY fall wreath.

2. Prep the Stems

Take each bloom and cut the stem down with your floral wire cutters, leaving about 12 inches to work with.

3. Arrange the Floral Stems in the Wreath

Stick the stem through the wreath form, arranging them how they look good! Bend the stems back so that the wreath can still lay flat.

I added a few faux magnolia blooms, along the way. Either way, they are pretty!

4. Secure the Stems in Place

Once you have all of the blooms stuck through the wreath, secure the ends.

Position the stems just the way you like them, flip it over and stick the ends back down into the underside of the wreath. I found it pretty easy to just tuck them under the wreath in the back.

Or you can attach them in the back with floral wire or hot glue gun. (If I were to make this wreath over again, I would cut the stems down on the back and just hot glue them in place.)

Sorry, I didn’t get a picture of them tucked under. Hopefully, it makes sense!

5. Add a Cute Sign

I added the cute little sign in the middle with some floral wire and hung it on the door! If you want to transition slowly into fall, you could always leave the sign off until it gets closer to Thanksgiving. (Although it’s always a great idea to give thanks!)

It maybe took me about 30 minutes to make this from start to finish. Anybody can do this!

I just LOVE it!

While it’s not for outdoor use, it would be fine under a covered porch or patio.

Those colors are just perfect for fall, although they aren’t super traditional fall colors. I think that’s why I love them so much.

  4. What a great idea! Plus…when I’m ready for a different wreath I can just pull out the flowers and add different ones. So instead of having a wreath for every season (and many to store away), I would have only one wreath but many possibilities! Thanks and Happy Fall!!

    1. Yes! Exactly!! I do that with a burlap wreath as well – just change it out as the season change. ๐Ÿ˜€
