My name is Michelle and I blog at Our Crafty Mom, a DIY/Home Decor Blog. I am thrilled to be guest posting at Centsible Chateau today! Now that the kids are back in school, it is time to think about Fall projects. It is tough to say goodbye to Summer, but I have to admit Fall is my favorite season. Living in New England we have beautiful fall foliage, which I used as inspiration for this DIY Rustic Fall Grapevine Wreath.
I wanted to use natural elements like twigs and pine cones, along with my favorite cotton stems for a farmhouse look. This came together so easily with just a few supplies. Here is a quick and easy tutorial:
Fall Picks with Pumpkins and Leaves
Hot Glue Gun
2 Large Acorns

I love to make wreaths and have been making them longer than I care to admit! First, I like to lay out the items and determine the placement. As I was using longer wheat stems, I laid those out first in different directions. I knew ahead of time that I wanted the wreath to only have florals on the left side, as I wanted the grapevine to show for that rustic look.Next, I added the cotton stems in the same direction as the wheat and continued to layer until I was happy with the placement. I added hot glue to the stems and attached those to the base. Continue the same pattern with the fall picks until the wreath is full enough.I also find it helps to hang the wreath at this point and continue to add items so it is even. I have a thing about symmetry and this is the best way to determine if you need to add or remove any items.Once you have all the florals added, attach the pumpkin to the center. It actually had a pick which made it so easy to stick into the wreath. But I have a tip for you. If you have foam pumpkins without any pick, just use paperclips! Straighten out one end, stick it in the pumpkin with hot glue and straighten the other end to put in the wreath. They work great!You can certainly add a bow if you like, but I wanted the stems to really stand out and didn’t feel a bow was necessary. However, a burlap bow would be great with the rustic look of this Fall Wreath. Wouldn’t this look great on a front door or over a mantel? That is where I plan to hang it. I will be sharing my Fall Mantel in a blog hop on September 5th and hope you will stop by Our Crafty Mom to check it out.If you like this wreath, you may also like my Rustic Glam Fall Wreath.
