Make this simple modern fall wreath tutorial with a minimalist feel that is perfect for any home.
One day when I was at Target, I was looking in the Bullseye Playground which is the most dangerous place in Target, I happened upon this hoop.
It was $3. You can buy a similar one at Michael’s for about the same price.
I thought it would make a perfect modern fall wreath.
Our front door has a storm door on it. So I only have a few inches to work with for a wreath.
All the wreaths that hang there have to be fairly flat. Which is why I thought the hoop would be perfect.
So then I headed off to Michael’s to buy some stems to add to it.
Since I only have a few inches between the door and the storm door to hang the wreath I didn’t want anything too bushy.
I ended up buying three different stems. I bought some yellowy-orange mini fall leaves, the mini orange pumpkin stems, and a stem of this red bush.
I laid the hoop on the table and started laying stems on top of it.
I wanted the stems to come out of both sides of the bow, so I laid them facing away from where the bow would go on either side.
I ended up using one pumpkin stem on each side. I used the floral wire to wrap it around the stem and the hoop to hold it in place.
It looks like a mess from the back, but don’t worry. No one will see it.
I also added one stem of the red bush for each side on top of the pumpkins. I wrapped each side with floral wire to hold the stem in place.
And I added two stems of the yellowy-orange leaves for each side and held them in place with floral wire.
Then I took this burlap bow, also from Michaels, and wired it in place in between the stem groupings.
I wanted this wreath to be asymmetrical so I moved the leather loop that came on my hoop so that it would hang asymmetrically on my door.
If your hoop doesn’t have a loop on it already you can add one with ribbon, just skip this step and hang the hoop directly on your hook.
I absolutely love how it turned out. It’s super duper cute.
