DIY Wreaths: Cool Accents For Doors & Walls

A new season is a golden opportunity to spruce up your surroundings with new decor. Thousands of DIYs, from furniture to small accents,  focus on perfecting the inside of the home. One area that is often neglected is the first you see when you arrive- the front door. Show it some crafty love with a wreath DIY, and enjoy your new welcoming entrance.

Fabulous Fabric Designs

Lauralee of Yellow Mums created a wreath that masterfully combines texture and color for a delightful door accent. Twigs from the backyard and fabric rosettes make a sunny fall wreath that will prompt a smile every time you come home. When making your rosettes, choose fabric that contrasts against the color of your door so the design pops.

Feel like giving your home a touch of bright and cheery decor? This wreath made by Wendy of A Couple More Hours is a colorful addition that will instantly perk up even the gloomiest of rooms. If you’re a quilter or sewer, simply dip into your stash of scraps to create this lovely fabric wreath. If you don’t have fabric on hand, fear not- purchase fat quarters for a cost-effective solution.

Heartfelt Holiday Cheer

Wreaths are a fun DIY that can be suited for any season or holiday. Though this project by Amy of Baby Baby Lemon was originally intended for Valentine’s Day, it could easily be adapted for the fall. Swap out the hearts for leaf-shaped cutouts, and spray paint the wreath gold instead of silver.

Emily of Couple Jones took a sweet approach to the classic wreath project. A fabric heart garland becomes the crafty centerpiece of a front door or bare wall. This DIY could also be adapted for fall with the use of leaves instead of hearts. Acorn shapes are also a great alternative.

Natural Elements

Featured on Shanty 2 Chic, this DIY from Jess and Monica of East Coast Creative uses a common backyard treasure- wood. After Hurricane Sandy left some fallen trees in its wake, this creative duo found an opportunity for a little crafty addition to their holiday season. A wooden cross section became a glam golden wreath with some spray paint and a sparkly ribbon. While the gold maintains the nature tones of this gorgeous piece, a neon pop of color would be equally stunning.

Happen to be a knitter or crocheter? This DIY will speak to the yarn loving DIYer. Virginia of Fynes Designs created this textured beauty to dress up her front door for the holidays. The combination of pine cones, yarn balls, and metallic ornaments makes for a festive home entrance.

Tonya of Love of Family and Home created an autumn-inspired wreath that perfectly compliments the changing weather. A skein of yarn, pool noodle, and few sprays from the floral department of your local craft store are all you need to make this harvest-themed DIY. Use a multicolored yarn to add depth and texture to your project.

This fall decor classic can be a simple DIY that transforms your front door in a matter of hours. Just take a cue from these crafty projects. Which of these wreaths is your favorite? Tell us in a comment below.
