To start with your fall wreath making adventure, you are going to need wreath supplies.

1. Styrofoam Fall Wreath Base

You may want to consider the styrofoam wreath base as your first wreath making supply to make your fall wreath with.

Why should you try making a fall wreath with a styrofoam wreath base?

  • Making a wreath with this base allows you to use glue, pins and more to add your wreath embellishments. It is a very easy wreath base to work with.
  • This wreath base is good if you plan on wrapping it in burlap or adding a lot of leaves or another material that covers it. Just remember that you won't want the base styrofoam to show through.
  • You can paint this wreath making base to help hide any spots that may peek through

You can find styrofoam wreath bases on Amazon. There are a variety of wreath base sizes, and many wreath bases come in packs of several for your future wreath-making projects.

You will also find rounded wreaths or flat wreaths on the link, it is just a matter of preference for what sort of wreath making supplies you want to use for your wreath making project.

Also, when using a styrofoam wreath base, you will probably want to use a hot glue gun to adhere the embellishments or floral pins, which you can also find on Amazon here, and the prices are much cheaper than you would find from a florist.

5. Paint For Your Wreath Base

Something you may want to consider, especially if you want to go with the metal wreath base or the styrofoam wreath base, is painting it a fall color in case it peeks through in places. Paint markers will also work for details.

For adding a touch paint to the wreath, we would suggest a gold or copper metallic paint to highlight the colors of the fall season.

For wreath painting, a metallic acrylic paint would do the job beautifully. A brand of paint we like to use here at DIY Craft Club is Jacquard. You can find a variety of metallic acrylic paints by Jacquard on Amazon right here.

These metallic acrylic paints are also great if you want to paint a gourd or pumpkin for a centerpiece, or tiny pumpkins to add to your fall wreath.

6. Burlap Ribbon

Nothing says fall more than beautiful burlap.

Here are some ways you can use burlap to decorate a wreath:

  • Wrap the burlap easily around a styrofoam wreath base
  • Use the floral pins to pin the burlap in intricate folds on your styrofoam.
  • Loosely wrap burlap ribbon around your finished wreath as an accent
  • Tie a burlap bow at the bottom of your wreath
  • Use the burlap ribbon as a hanger for your wreath
  • Stretch the burlap across the center of your wreath and add a wooden word cutout on top of it.

Here are the top 5 tips for making beautiful fall wreaths:

  1. Choose a Color Palette: Select a cohesive color palette that captures the essence of fall. Traditional autumn colors like deep oranges, reds, yellows, and earthy greens work well. Consider adding some contrasting elements like metallic gold or copper for a touch of elegance.

  2. Mix Textures and Elements: Incorporate a variety of textures and elements to make your wreath visually appealing. Combine different types of leaves, berries, pinecones, feathers, and decorative ribbons to create depth and interest.

  3. Layer and Cluster Elements: Create a layered and organic look by clustering similar elements together. For example, group leaves in small bunches and secure them in clusters around the wreath, making it look lush and abundant.

  4. Secure Items Well: Ensure that all the elements are securely attached to the wreath base. Use floral wire or a hot glue gun for a strong hold. Pay extra attention to the areas that might be exposed to the wind and weather if you're displaying your wreath outdoors.

  5. Personalize and Customize: Make your fall wreath unique by adding personal touches. You can incorporate small pumpkins, initials, or a welcoming message using wooden letters. Personalization adds a special and memorable touch to your décor.

Best Colors For A Fall Wreath:

  1. Rustic Orange: Rustic orange represents the changing colors of fall leaves and is one of the quintessential colors of autumn. It exudes warmth, energy, and a sense of coziness, making it a popular choice for fall wreaths.

  2. Deep Red: Deep red, like burgundy or maroon, symbolizes the rich and mature aspects of fall. It adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to wreaths, making them stand out and creating a sense of depth in the design.

  3. Earthy Brown: Brown is reminiscent of the earthy tones of tree trunks and the soil. It provides a neutral background that complements other fall colors beautifully, allowing them to pop and be more prominent in the wreath.

  4. Golden Yellow: Golden yellow represents the crisp and sunny days of autumn. This color adds vibrancy and a cheerful atmosphere to your wreath, creating a pleasing contrast with the deeper, more subdued fall shades.

  5. Olive Green: Olive green is a muted and earthy green tone that is perfect for representing the fading foliage of fall. It complements other fall colors and adds a natural touch, creating a harmonious and balanced look.

These colors are popular for fall wreaths because they collectively capture the essence of the season.

They reflect the changing colors of the leaves, the harvest, and the warm, inviting ambiance that autumn brings.
