Ah yes, the time of year where the leaves start to change colors and then fall off the trees. The air gets crisper and cooler. The wind starts to blow.
Unless you live in Florida.
How I wish the leaves turned colors. Oh well!
To make it feel a bit more like fall, decorating your home in the proper decor will get you all the fall feels even if it doesn’t feel like it outside.
The first piece of decor you can start with is a fall wreath!
How To Make a Fall Wreath
I always see the leaf garlands at Michaels and Hobby Lobby and I’ve always wanted to make something with them. It would be expensive to do something like a flower wall and that’s all I could think of using them for. Well, other than laying them on a fireplace mantle.
Until, I got the idea to use them for a fall wreath DIY!
Steps For a Fall Wreath DIY
- Cut a piece of wire that is long enough to wrap around a part of the wreath.
- Lace the wire through the end of the garland and wrap it around the wreath, twisting it off to secure it. Repeat this every 5 inches or so.
- Once you get to the point where the garland meets up with itself, cut any excess off.
This is probably the easiest wreath you will ever make.
If you don’t want to use wire, you can use string or clear fishing line. I used what I had a lot of on hand and I wanted something I could easily remove in case I wanted to use the wreath base for a different season.
I like how you can see some of the grapevine and moss peeking through the wreath. It gives it more of a higher-end wreath feel even though the price to make it was low.

I’d love to recreate this fall wreath DIY with real leaves. Next time I go somewhere that has an actual fall, I hope I remember to bring some leaves home.
I actually got this wreath on sale at Joann’s for $5 and the leaf garland for $8 with a coupon. I had the wire on hand so it only cost me $13 total to make!
That’s a great deal compared to the price stores sell wreaths for. $60 and up for wreaths when you can make them yourself for less than $15 is just crazy.
