Make this easy Golden Fall Blooms Wreath to add a lovely pop of color to your outdoor decor this season. The combination of gold and deep orange is great for fall decor. I ran into a few obstacles while putting this together, but in the end, it was just what I was hoping for.
When I saw these fall blooms at JoAnn Fabric and Craft recently, I knew I wanted to use them to make a wreath. I’d been hoping to find some long stemmed blooms and these were on sale. I bought six stems plus a couple of acorn circular stems. I had the wire wreath form in my craft stash.
In my vision for this wreath, the stems were going to be placed between the wires to get a sweeping look. After working with it for half an hour and not liking any of the positions I tried, I decided that a foam wreath form would work better. The only problem with that idea was that I didn’t have a foam wreath on hand and I really didn’t want to go to the store to buy one.
How to Make a Golden Fall Blooms Wreath
- Pool Noodle
- Gorilla Painter’s Tape
- Flower Blooms on long leafy stems
- Acorn Florals
- Wood Pumpkin
- Gorilla Clear Grip Glue
- Autumn Sign
After searching through my craft stash for a foam wreath form and not finding one, I improvised with a dollar store pool noodle that I bought months ago. It’s held together with Gorilla Tape. I wrapped the tape around it several times until I was sure it would hold.
Using a foam wreath form meant that I could use pearl head pins instead of glue to hold the ribbon in place. I wrapped it, overlapping it until I ran out of ribbon. I should have purchase two rolls. I was determined to find a way to finish the wreath without a trip back to the store.
I added some blue ribbon to the wreath thinking that if some of it showed, it would be a nice color combination.
Before adding the stems, I curved them into the shape that I wanted to place them in on the wreath.
The stems are tied onto the wreath with twine.
The acorns were circular stems, so I pulled them apart and added them to the bottom of the wreath in the center. They are attached with twine, too.
This wood pumpkin is one of a set of two that I bought several years ago. I’ve re-used them on various projects. Recently I used the second one on a Fall Basket. I used Gorilla Clear Grip Glue to attach the pumpkin.
I continued adding the floral stems up the sides of the wreath holding them in place with twine and pins. The finishing touch was to add this autumn sign to the top of the wreath. This covers the blue ribbon and adds more dimension to the wreath.
Considering the number of obstacles I ran into while making this wreath, I’m happy with how it turned out!
