I’ve been working on my fall porch for awhile. Not because it’s amazing or anything, but because I put out the pumpkins and mums at the end of September when we were still having 100 degree temps and now my mums are dead and I have to start over. I shared on Instagram that even a fake candle in a lantern melted. Lesson learned: Wait until October! And that’s why I stand behind this simple and easy DIY faux fall wreath! It’s an easy one that will last – read on for all the details.
I have a couple fall wreaths like this Halloween one, but I wanted to go a little more neutral with one that will last through November.
I got the wreath, florals and sprigs at Michaels and the ribbon from Hobby Lobby. I only used the magnolia flowers and saved the leaves for another project (will share soon).
The key to faking a pretty bow is to wrap the two loops and then place another smaller strip of ribbon around it in the center with some hot glue in the back.
I wanted it to have a bit of a rustic flair, so I painted the polka dots with some copper craft paint.
Then I hot glued the flowers and inserted the sprigs on either side. No need to hot glue those because you can wrap the wire underneath the wreath. Then I threw in some gold glittery little acorns I found at Michaels.
p.s. Do you see my new JORD wood watch – giveaway coming soon!
And that’s it! I used a 3M command hook to hang it on the door.
But it’s also cute just sitting on a crate, too.
Isn’t that ‘Happy Fall’ sign adorable? I just got it at Pinners in Scottsdale last weekend from Prickley Peach Designs, and the best part is that it’s double-sided with a Christmas design on the back! That makes me all kinds of happy.
Hope it’s feeling like fall where you are, but not too cold yet! 😉
