This morning, I turned on the heat, which means it’s time to think cozy thoughts. So today, I’ve collected six DIY fall wreaths to warm up your home. If you love sweater weather, then check out the yarn wreaths in lovely fall colors. Bonkers for burlap? I have burlap fall wreaths, too. All your fall favorites – gourds, mums, leaves, felt flowers, are here. But I’ll start with one that’s striking in pearly simplicity – the Elegant Fall Wreath from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous.
Linda wanted something out of the ordinary for her fall wreath this year. The understated yet elegant pearls are lovely, and by switching out the ribbon, Linda can use this wreath all year long. That’s a time saver!
For another, different angle on a fall wreath, here’s the Fall Monogram Wreath by Chelsea from Two Twenty One. I love the unexpected, rectangular shape, and the colorful monogram, too.
Jill from Create.Craft.Love is super-busy, just like all of us, and she shares a tutorial for her super-fast Simple Burlap Fall Wreath. If you have just 10 – 15 minutes to make your fall wreath, this is the one for you.
I think you already know Jen from Tatertots & Jello (she shared her Halloween Ghost Wreath yesterday). A while back, Jen shared her tutorial for her DIY Burlap & Scrabble Tile Wreathwith her friend Amy at Living Locurto. The bright ribbon and rolled flowers really punch it up, and you can personalize the Scrabble tile sentiment to your family name, or other seasonal phrase.
Don’t you think yarn wreaths are perfect for this time of year? Rebecca at My Girlish Whims shares her Fall Yarn Wreath, along with an easy-to-follow tutorial for making the felt flowers.
One of my favorite yarn wreaths is the Shades of Fall Yarn Wreath by Kathleen George. I featured this one on Crafts ‘n Coffee last year. It’s really timeless and worth another look this year. Plus, you’ll find this post has links to even more fall wreaths.
And here’s some good news for those who have asked about the yarn Kathleen used for the Shades of Fall Yarn Wreath. Kathleen has tracked it down and it’s Universal Yarns, Classic Shades, color #706. Kathleen bought it at her local Webs Yarn, and if you cannot find it where you live, contact Webs Yarn. They’re extremely helpful with online sales.
I was going to share one more fall wreath today, but then I decided that it’s really in a category of its own. Be sure to stop in tomorrow for the mystery wreath . . .
