Easy & Affordable DIY Fall Wreath!

Fall is happening any day ya’ll! I’m probably more excited for fall this year then I’ve ever been because I can DECORATE my own space this year ❤

My sister and I were looking for fall decor and saw these adorable fall wreaths everywhere. I thought they would be so adorable on my front door but they averaged $40-$50 a piece, which is outrageous. So we were looking around more and I thought “It would be so easy to make this ourselves..” 

So here we have a super adorable DIY Fall Wreath for about $15.00! Score!

Here is what you will need: Everything bought at Michaels Craft Store, but any craft store should have similar stuff.

  • Grapevine Wreath $4.99
  • Any flowers you like- make sure you look for coupons, there is ALWAYS 40% off coupons for Michaels on the Coupon Sherpa app!
  • Hot Glue Gun- Optional- we ended up just weaving the stems into the wreath but if you want extra security you could glue some of them in. 
  • Wire cutter

Simply arrange the flowers how you like and there you have it! We decided to do only about 3/4 of the wreath in flowers because I liked the look of the sticks, but you can totally cover the whole thing in flowers for a more dramatic look.

I love how they turned out and we are definitely going to make one for Christmas too.

DIY: Chalkboard Signs; Floral + Rustic

I wanted to share one of my new obsessions. Chalkboard signs! During wedding planning over the last 6 months I’ve grown to LOVE chalkboard DIY’s. It started with my vision for my wedding. The theme is rustic but classy, outdoorsy and whimsicle. I made my first sign (the wood slab “bar” one) and it took me forever! I was so focused on making my handwriting perfect and I redid it a thousand times! Now I just free-hand it and go with the flow and I find they turn out better! After I finished the writing on the bar sign, I loved it.. but I felt like it needed just a little something more. I had these faux flowers laying around from another DIY and decided to hot glue them on. I LOVE how it turned out & it fits the theme of my wedding so well 🙂 So then it kind of snowballed from there and now I’m obsessed with making these cute signs. Which one is your favorite? Mine is the gold framed Welcome sign. ❤ Hope you enjoy! I linked some of the chalkboards and supplies I’ve used if you want to do it yourself.
