Fall is officially here, so it is time to decorate your home for the season. A wreath for your front door is a great way to add some festive cheer to your home. However, there is no need to spend a ton of money to buy a fall wreath. With these simple tips, you can create a DIY wreath that looks better than anything you would find in a store. As a bonus, you won't have to worry about your neighbors having the same wreath either, as yours will be unique.
Incorporate Traditional Symbols of the Season
Fall abounds with distinctive items to include in your wreath, like pumpkins, ears of corn, red and orange leaves, cornucopias and more. Look for objects in the same color family, typically warm, earthy tones for fall, to give your wreath a cohesive look. Think about fall holidays for inspiration. You can find the items you need at affordable prices at your local craft store. The store associates can also provide tips and tricks to help you in creating your wreath.
When designing your wreath, there is no need to keep everything perfectly balanced. In fact, it is the imperfections of a DIY wreath that can make it so interesting. Cluster several decorations in a single area to make a bold visual statement, or scatter them randomly throughout the wreath for a more eclectic look. The possibilities are endless, and the way you design your wreath is entirely up to you. Play around with different layouts before securing items to find the style that you like best.
Include Unique Details
You don't need to go overboard with too much fall symbolism in your wreath. Try to incorporate some unexpected items, like weathered paper, tinsel or yarn, or even family photos. Stick with a similar color palette so that your wreath doesn't end up looking a mess. The goal here is to add visual interest, not clutter. Look to Pinterest or your favorite DIY bloggers for inspiration. Incorporate bits and pieces from a variety of sources, but make sure that your final design still speaks to your preferences and decorative style.
