I made a new fall wreath. I guess you can say I am ready to wave good bye to summer. I have been wreath making, decorating for fall, and planning our living room make over. I’m ready for crisp air, fall leaves, and all the colors of fall. I never get tired of making wreaths for fall, decorating my home, and adding to my grapevine wreath ideas. Are you ready to decorate your own wreath?
Today’s fall wreath is decorated on a grapevine heart wreath. But, there are more ideas later in the post you can pick from. Let’s get stared on today’s wreath diy.
The supplies I had to make this wreath are extra supplies left over from last years wreath, with the exception of the heart wreath I purchased to decorate. I’m trying to use up some of my craft supplies stash. Heart grapevine wreaths are so easy to decorate, and only takes a few supplies.
It’s made just like the one in this tutorial how to decorate a grapevine wreath. But, I’ll walk you through what you need, and how to decorate a heart wreath. You can decorate your wreath as full, or scaled back as you want.
This wreath can be decorated in under 30 – 60 minutes depending on your skill level. We are all for quick and easy crafts, that you can slip into your day. Or complete in your kids nap-time.

DIY fall wreath
Heat up your hot glue gun. Cut your flowers. Lay them to the side.
Take out your twig wreath, and lay it on your work surface. If you want to make your own you might like this tutorial for how to make a grapevine heart.
Decide the placement of your flowers on your wreath, and hot glue them in place. Remember the rule of thirds, and odd numbers create visual interest to the eyes.
Then add your decorations around your bow, at your focal point. I used pine cones, flowers, a butterfly… If you are making a wreath for Thanksgiving just omit the butterfly. ( It’s on a wire, and I can just pull it off for Thanksgiving.)
Remember when working on your wreath to hold it up and look at it, making adjustments to your design as needed. Make sure to glue decorations down well, use floral wire around decorations if needed. I ended up taking off the bow for this wreath.
Add decorations creating mini vignettes to look at, around the sides and top creating balance to the look of your wreath. Remember to set it against something and take a step back when working on it. Before you know it you can have a wreath made to hang on your door. Or use it for a wall wreath.
