Making a wreath for fall can be easy. I used blue pumpkins, dried bunny tail grass, and a fern wreath for this DIY wreath for fall and you can too.
Warning: your neighbors will be jealous.
This wreath for fall turned out gorgeous and even better than I had originally planned. It cost me less than $15 to make and it hangs beautifully on my turquoise front door.
Decorating with fall decor in a house that’s mainly blue can be a bit tricky since fall colors consist of oranges, reds, and yellows. All the warm colors that don’t vibe well with blues and greens.
That doesn’t mean fall decor has to be written off though! This DIY fall wreath has the fall elements while still staying within my color scheme.
If you love your blues and want to decorate with fall but aren’t really sure how, keep reading.
Let’s start with a front door wreath.
DIY Wreath For Fall
- Mini pumpkins (I used these and these)
- Faux fern wreath
- Dried bunny tail grass
- Jewelry wire & cutter
Steps For Making a Wreath For Fall
- First cut a piece of wire that can wrap around your pumpkin and wreath.
- Wrap the wire around the pumpkin stems then around the wreath and twist it off.
- Put together a cluster of dried bunny tail grass and cut the stems to 5 inches or less. Wrap a piece of wire around the bottom of the stems to hold them together.
- Using more wire, secure the cluster to the wreath by wrapping it like the pumpkins.
You can put the dried bunny tail on the wreath first to create a complete circle of it on the wreath and then add in fall decoration. This would look gorgeous as well!
I got my wreath from the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia line at Target and it was on clearance for $5! The pumpkins were all found in the dollar section. Needless to say, go to your local Target ASAP.
The dried bunny tail was leftover decoration from my wedding and I’m so glad I found a use for it! It really fits the fall decor theme well but also has a bit of a beachy touch.
If blue isn’t your fall style, check out my post on how to make a fall wreath using a leaf garland. I use red and orange leaves and it just screams fall. Warning: it will clash with your tropical beach decor.
And here it is on my blue front door (on the outside) where it currently hangs…

I really wanted a fall wreath to put on my bright turquoise front door but I knew it couldn’t use the usual fall colors.
Blue pumpkins are the answer to match all of your tropical beach decor.
Pair the blue pumpkins with dried bunny tail grass or pampas and go crazy. I have these elements all throughout my house and it’s fall without the crazy warm tones.
