In this post: DIY Front Door Fall Wreath that’s fast and easy. You can make this wreath yourself in less than 30 minutes!
If you have followed this blog for very long, you know that with each new season comes a new front door wreath. Sometimes I start from scratch and other times I just repurpose what I have. The wreath I’m sharing today is a little bit of both. I’m reusing the grapevine wreath from my summer front porch but I treated myself to new, golden, sort of whispy faux stems.

DIY Front Door Fall Wreath: Supplies Needed
- 18 inch grapevine wreath
- large faux fall branches (From Hobby Lobby. Not available online.)
- wire cutters (these are my favorite)
This is what my branches looked like before I began. They were huge and measured about 3 feet tall. They were $11.99 each (but 40% off) and I purchased four. They were sturdy, plus the stems were very thick so I knew I could bend them a certain way and they would stay put.
The first thing I did was separate the stems on each branch and then cut the stems off with wire cutters. When I was finished, I had 12 much smaller stems that looked like this:
The next step is simply sticking the smaller branches into the grapevine wreath. Begin at the top of your wreath, or at 12 o’clock. The second stem went in at 6 o’clock. I then followed with 5 branches on each side. Imagine the spokes of a bicycle wheel and stick the branches in at an angle.
Now it’s time to hang the wreath on your door. After hanging my wreath, I gently bent all the stems into a circular shape and pulled them out a bit. I wanted depth more than I wanted width.
I’m still not completely sure this wreath is finished, but I’m leaving it as is for a while. I don’t think it needs a bow, but oddly enough I think it needs something…I’m just not sure what!
I planted golden mums and ivy in my black planters…but I’ll be back soon with more details on that plus the sitting area of the porch. You might remember that when I shared my fall decor plans, I mentioned that I wanted to use my boxwood wreath for the front door. In my mind, I was going to add faux sunflowers to it and it was going to be spectacular. Well…that didn’t happen. The wreath was much too small for the front door so that whole idea went right out the window. That’s when I headed to Hobby Lobby for some inspiration and came up with Plan B! I love the way this wreath turned out and it’s neutral enough to go all the way until I decorate for Christmas.
Tip: This same idea can be used with regular faux stems found at any craft store. Just make sure the actual stem is strong enough to keep the shape when you bend it into place.
