Decorating with Fall Wreaths
Fall wreaths are an easy way to celebrate autumn, Halloween and Thanksgiving. They offer a flexible and easy way to add texture and color to your space and are perfect for both exterior and interior home decorating.
Here’s a quick look at how some of our favorite design bloggers incorporated fall wreaths into their homes for our Halloween Harvest Style Challenge.
This especially playful candy corn wreath was featured in Serena of Thrift Diving‘s Halloween styled entryway. The wiry black branches are adorned with vibrant candy corn pieces and colorful black, yellow and orange faux berries.
This wreath accents almost any Halloween scene and playfully reminds us that trick-or-treating is just around the corner! We love the fun element this unconventional wreath adds to her spooky décor. All the neighborhood kids will be excited to knock on Serena’s door this year!
While unusual and unexpected materials keep things fresh, we’ll always have a soft spot for traditional fall wreaths and the stunning focal points they create — no matter where you place them.
Haneen of Haneen’s Haven pulls her copper mantel decor design together with an elegant, burnt orange wreath constructed from thin wooden curls. This vibrant, yet neutral, wreath beautifully accents her fall-themed space. By centering the wreath in the glass fireplace screen, she creates symmetry and shine.
Adding a personal touch to a wreath is simpler than you might think! Ashley of Let’s Mingle placed a single hand-painted wooden letter in the center of her pumpkin wreath to personalize her simple fall front door decor. Gorgeous fall leaves, pinecones, rich orange flowers and small metallic pumpkins bring texture and interest.
Ashley extends those colors and textures and tastefully weaves even more fall elements into the rest of her design. The customized, autumn-themed wreath is a beautiful focal point for her entryway – the final touch for her inviting harvest vignette.
Pre-made wreaths are an easy and beautiful way to decorate your space, but don’t forget about the many fun options for DIY wreaths! Why not create a unique statement, like the one made by Katie Compton of Helpful Homemade in her whimsical Halloween decorations?
Katie fashioned her DIY striped wreath by wrapping felt around a basic form and placing a plastic skull in the wreath’s center. The glittery orange bow lends a glamorous touch to the wreath and contrasts sharply with the black-and-white color scheme of ghosts, tombstones and “BOO” lettering.
Sandra Downie of The Rustic Life transformed her mudroom into a harvest-inspired haven while staying true to her signature, rustic look. The bright colors and textures of her fall wreath shine in this space punctuating the muted fall tones of the scarecrows, hay bales and corn stalks.
When looking for simple, yet beautiful, ways to decorate your home, try adding a wreath! This welcoming household decoration is based in ancient customs. For hundreds of years, wreaths have been used to celebrate seasons and say something about the family within. Whether pre-made, customized, or completely DIY, the versatility of wreaths makes it easy to show your style all year long.
