Back in the Day

It’s commonly assumed that the first wreath was created in Ancient Greece where it was both worn as a headdress by the elite and used to crown the Olympic Games champions. Unfortunately, it still remains unclear how this headpiece has wound up on our walls. Some believe that the wall wreath originated from the Greek “harvest wreath”, which was hung to increase the prospect of favorable harvests. Meanwhile, the others assume Christians to be the first makers of wall wreaths – over 1000 years before Christ, they assembled “Advent wreaths” to demonstrate the eternity of life in the face of the harsh forces of winter. Whichever version is true, today, you don’t have to be a champion, farmer, or a frozen Christian to decorate your home with a captivating wreath!

Things You’ll Need

Regardless of what kind of wreath you’re planning to create, you’ll waste hours without a wreath form, which can be a Styrofoam frame, wire wreath form, embroidery hoop, or even a super-budget-friendly frame made from an ordinary wire hanger! In order to put everything together, you can’t go without a hot-melt glue gun, duct tape, or a piece of wire (depends on what kind of wreath form you have). On top of that, proper wire cutters are a necessity when it comes to making wreaths – using them, you’ll easily cut wire and thick silk flower stems.

Easy & Fabulous

It’s no secret that the best fall wreaths incorporate seasonal elements like burlap, leaves, berries, autumn flowers, and pumpkins, which do not necessarily have to be red, brown, and orange. For example, The Spruce suggests placing a white pumpkin (instead of an orange one), faded orange and blue leaves, and a light-colored ribbon on a grapevine wreath.

If you’re into the traditional autumnal palette, you can assemble a peerless yet simple fall leaf wreath – you’ll need a bunch of preserved fallen leaves, our confetti maple leaves, fall ivy silk chain, or hand-made leaves made of leftover paper napkins), vine wreath form, and a piece of burlap of any matching color.

Creating a fabulous red berry wreath will require a bunch of red berries (our red pearl beads wire stems will also do!) and a vine wreath. Using an embroidery hoop, several different blooms in autumnal colors, and a hot-melt glue gun, you can craft a minimalistic embroidery hoop wreath in less than 10 minutes! By sticking gold, white, and chocolate brown hydrangeas into a vine wreath, you can easily arrange a fluffy hydrangea wreath.

Got a huge piece of burlap? Cut multiple strips from it, tie them to your wire form (keep tying until the wire disappears), and voila – your perfect neutral fall wreath is ready (hint: you can use a mesh roll to achieve that cute fluffiness)!

These fall wreath examples are here just to offer you some inspiration. Using the same principles, you can make something really unique. Along with eFavormart products mentioned above, you can also feel free to use our burlap flowers, different trims, fabrics, beads, cake toppers left from previous parties, and other goodies, wherever you find your inspiration!
