Mini Pumpkins

Instead of making a wreath with bulky plastic gourds, try using putka pods, which are natural dried seed pods that look exactly like tiny pumpkins. This wreath makes an elegant fall statement that can be displayed year after year. Get the step-by-step instructions >>

One-of-a-Kind DIY Design

Do you think you can guess what this unique wreath is made out of? If you guessed upcycled electrical wire, you'd be correct (and a really great guesser!). Design by Joanne Palmisano. Get the step-by-step instructions >>

Add Corners for Drama

A round wreath with autumn colored leaves would be somewhat predictable, but when you intro a new shape, you're really making a statement. 

Inside the Entryway

Exterior doors are not the only places for hanging wreaths. Get creative with your fall decorating by layering wreaths onto other wall-mounted elements. Here, a festive wreath on top of a generously sized mirror greets homeowners at their entryway.

Easy and Elegant

Greet guests with a warm mix of dried organic materials. With a wide range of options to choose from, keep it simple and classic with light and dark corn husks, dried leaves and mini pumpkins.

Make a Rectangular Rustic Wreath

Add an earthy touch indoors or out with this twist on a traditional round fall wreath. Dried mushrooms, moss, seed pods and grasses form the base while russet fresh or faux pears add a pop of fall color. Get the step-by-step instruction >> 

Rustic Display

Simple decorations make for a sweet setting topped off with a rolled-paper wreath. 

Fresh Florals

Bring the lush look of lively floral with a wreath made of flowers and leaves. When entertaining, consider using live, cut florals and botanicals fastened to foam wreaths that can soak up water and hydrate stems. For season-long use, attach silk florals and botanicals with floral wire.

Bring on the Berries

Add color, shape and texture to your home with an autumnal berry wreath. Create one wreath to last throughout the entire holiday season by using red and yellow tones, or make a wreath specific to Thanksgiving with orange-toned berries.

Rustic Wreath for Thanksgiving

Warmly welcome Thanksgiving dinner guests with this sweet rustic wreath. Use hot glue to attach moss to a foam wreath form, completely covering all sides. Attach paper medallions to the wreath with hot glue and embellish centers of medallions with buttons. Print "welcome" greeting onto craft paper, and cut out accordingly.
