Fall is one of my favorite seasons! I’m pretty sure I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love fall and if you don’t I’m sorry we just can’t be friends. Just kidding but there is something refreshing about fall. Maybe for you its the chill in the air, football, family gatherings, apple cider and all things pumpkin. Or maybe you’re like me and enjoy changing your decor with the seasons. I love decorating for different seasons and holidays but it can be pricey.
I have been eyeing a simple fall wreath but all of the ones I loved were more than I was willing to pay. Thus this wreath tutorial was born. I am really happy with how it turned out and it was a fraction of the cost of a pre-made wreath. The cost for the grapevine wreath and wheat bundles were about $12.

- 18-inch grapevine wreath
- 3 bundles of dried wheat
- Hot glue gun and sticks
- Pheasant feathers (optional)
I decided to use a grapevine wreath so that I wouldn’t need to worry about covering every inch of the wreath and it adds a little rustic touch.
First thing I did is cut the wheat about an inch or two below the head of the wheat. I gathered two or three pieces of wheat and pinch the ends together. Put about a pea-sized dab of glue on the ends and then stick the wheat into the wreath. Hold for a few seconds until the glue sticks.
I worked my way around the wreath. Once I finished the entire wreath I went and filled any uneven spots I saw and made sure it was full enough. To keep a more simple look to my wreath, I didn’t add a bow but you could easily add one. If you wanted to add more interest I think pheasant feathers would fit the bill perfectly.
That’s it. So simple and makes a statement. Now hang that beauty and enjoy!!!
