Apple season is on its way!
Which means it is also my favorite time of the year! Fall!!
This year I have been inspired by all things apple in my fall decorating! I love the rustic natural beauty that apples add to the fall season. I was inspired to use more natural elements for decorating and this beautiful DIY apple wreath for Fall will definitely tie it all together! Here is my How to Fall wreath tutorial so you can make your own DIY Fall Apple Wreath!
Here is what you will need to make a DIY Fall Apple Wreath:
- Grapevine wreath form
- Mini Apples – Mine came from Joann Fabrics
- Faux Leaf Greenery or Spanish Moss
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
First thing you want to do is plug in that glue gun! Ha! How many projects have you sat down to start only to realize that you forgot to plug in your glue gun…..no? ….. Just me? Well plug it in and lets get started!
I always like to find the perfect top section of my grapevine wreath before I start working on it. Because grapevine wreaths are made with natural elements they often have variations along the wreath and sometimes can be a little off in shape.
I always like to start on the left side of my wreath but you can really pick any spot along the wreath form and start gluing down your apples. I glued my apples close together and in different directions. After I glue down a small section of about 4 or 5 apples to the wreath I like to lay in the greenery to make sure the spacing is alright and there isn’t any gaps that are to large.
At first I wasn’t sure what filler I wanted to use in my Apple wreath….. leaves or spanish moss. The apples that I used for this DIY fall wreath are not a deep red color I felt like the spanish moss didn’t highlight them like I wanted, so I went with the green leaves.
The leaves were apart of a berry pick and simply pulled the leaves off the the stems to use on my wreath.
I liked the complimentary look that the leaves give, it makes it feel like a more rustic natural wreath.
I decided to leave the top half of my wreath open to keep some of the grapevine wreath exposed. It adds a bit of rustic texture to this beautiful fall wreath and really helps to make the color of the apples stand out.
Glue your leaves into place and your wreath is finished! Now its time to hang your new fall DIY wreath!!
Once the weather stops being so dark and gloomy here I will be able to take some pictures of where my DIY fall apple wreath is displayed in our home!
