This rustic DIY fall wreath features pretty shades of mauve, pink and green to create for a soothing transition into the new season.
I love switching out wreaths as the seasons change. It's an easy home decor item that adds the perfect seasonal touch. This month for the Thrifty Style Challenge, I'm sharing how to repurpose old wreaths into this pretty fall one!
I bet you've seen some stunning wreaths in the stores recently, right? Yeah, me too. They're all really pretty but usually have a crazy price tag associated with them. One of my favorite thrifty DIYs is creating my own wreaths. I try to make a new one for every season and I don't always have to buy new wreath forms. I just reuse the ones I already own!
Wreaths are super simple to make yourself and if you grab supplies from Michael's while they're on sale, they can be REALLY cheap. For instance, I made this wreath for $10 since all the florals were on sale for 60% off. But if I had needed to buy the wreath form, it would have been $17 in total since I would have been able to use a 50% off coupon on the twig wreath form.
Like I said, I already owned this wreath form and it's just been collecting dust in my office for over a year so turning it into a bona fide wreath that I enjoy looking at was a great 15 minute project yesterday.
Do you have old wreaths at home that you no longer like the style of? Consider removing the extra elements and stripping it back to it's basic form, then building it back up again. It will save it from the trash heap and save you having to shell out money for a new one!
I'm not even going to give you a tutorial for this wreath because it was SO SIMPLE. It's all about adding layers and varying the texture and color. I started with some eucalyptus leaves, bending them to the shape of the wreath. With this twig wreaths, you don't even need floral wire or glue, you can just stick everything into them and they hold perfectly.
Next, I layered in some of the mauve colored stems. I knew I wanted the pick with the pumpkins to fall in the middle so I did that next, and finally filled in the gaps with the pretty pink flowers.
Not too bad for 15 minutes of my time and $10 right? So get crafty, dig out those old wreaths that you're no longer loving and make something beautiful today!
