Where I Find Natural & Handmade Fall Wreath Inspiration

I love browsing beautiful fall wreaths online and in stores. There’s so much beauty and inspiration to be found.

I am particularly drawn to the ones that include lots of natural elements: grasses, dried flowers, leaves, pinecones etc.

Do you love that style too?

I sat down this morning with a piping hot espresso and below are some gorgeous wreaths that I found from Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma.

They are made with natural materials – dried grasses and leaves, pinecones, little pumpkins, dried flowers, herbs – nothing fancy but put together their natural beauty SHINES.

Notice anything wrong with these wreaths?? Not a single one is under $80. – Yikes!

These wreaths are gorgeous BUT $80 + for a wreath is NOT in my budget.

I find the BEST inspiration to come from nature and the good news is – it’s FREE!

Leaves, grasses, herbs, twigs – each contain an intense beauty that could never be duplicated.

How to make your own Natural Fall Wreaths for a whole lot less:

If you spend a little bit of time collecting grass/flower/herb materials from outside, you could easily make one of these wreaths for UNDER $10.

You could easily make one for under $5!

If you already own basic craft supplies like a glue gun and glue sticks a bit of wire or spray paint you could easily make these wreaths for even less. I created all three of these wreaths below from gathered materials and craft supplies I already had. A small gauge wire for wrapping and a foam wreath form is all I purchased. I spent UNDER $5 for all three wreaths!!

Where can YOU find Natural Elements for your Handmade Fall Wreaths?

Look around you!

What can you gather from your yard, along sidewalks, off trees & bushes, in the neighborhood, at a friend’s, or in the park.

Go on a walk! It’s a great time to practice Gratitude and thank God for the natural beauty surrounds us.

A few twigs and grasses here, flowers and herbs there.

STRETCH your creativity. Look for what you have before you buy supplies.

Seeded grasses on the roadside, dried flowers in the garden . . . seeing what you can find is half the fun!

TIP: In the Fall, I look for grasses and twigs that are already drying. BUT you can easily dry your own leaves, flowers and herbs – tie flowers and herbs and grasses in bundles and hang upside down inside for a few days. Lay leaves flat to dry in a warm place.

Use your larger broad leaves to fill in your form. Using hot glue apply a band along the base of the leaf and glue to wreath form in a row around the diameter of your wreath form.

NEXT, overlap broad leaves like fish scales when you glue on your net row. 

Continue around the form, overlapping leaves slightly and filling in gaps as you go. Try tucking a GOLD leaf here and there to add a bit of GLAM to your wreath.

After the form is covered in the leaves, you can glue/tuck in dried grasses or flowers however you like.

Add pinecones or little pumpkins, ribbons or bows.

Use faux leaves and grasses and embellishments if you prefer.

TIP: If you are using real leaves that aren’t dried make sure to either dry them by letting them sit out flat for a few days in a warm place. Place them on the wreath form but let the whole wreath sit flat to dry for a few days before hanging! SOME of the color will fade but ALL of the Fall charm will remain.
