Fortnight of Fright 2016: Fall Wreath Craft (Amy from Read A Latte)


Welcome to our fifth annual FORTNIGHT OF FRIGHT event!
October 17th – October 31st, 2016

Thanks for checking out the FIFTH annual edition of FORTNIGHT OF FRIGHT where Alyssa (Books Take You Places), Amy (Tripping Over Books), and I bring you two full weeks of Halloween-related posts! We’ve invited bloggers, authors, and book lovers alike to share their favorite things about Halloween and we feature a new person and post each day. 

Today, Amy from Read A Latte is sharing a super fun fall craft and how she makes her own fall wreaths!

When the chilly weather hits, I am either reading under a blanket somewhere, or wielding a hot glue gun as I craft my way through the fall and winter. Since October is one of my favorite months, I wanted to start my craft making as soon as I could.

Luckily, AC Moore and I operate on the same schedule. As soon as that leaf decor comes out, I’m there for it. Today I put together a quick guide to DIY-ing your own fall-themed wreath — bringing that fall foliage feel right to your front door!

The Foliage Wreath


This is super simple, because the bulk of it is the base, which comes pre-made! I got all my supplies at AC Moore, but let’s be real, any craft store this time of year has the same things:

You’ll Need:

  • A Grapevine Wreath
  • Fall Foliage Garland
  • Large Bow
  • Assorted Pumpkins and Gourds
  • Hot Glue Gun

First, I pulled apart the wreath, just a little, to give it a slightly messier, fall look. Then, just take the garland and wrap it evenly around the grapevine wreath, tucking it into the branches as you go. I hot glued the edges of the garland onto the wreath, as well.

If there are gaps, no problem! That’s where the pumpkins and gourds come in! I grouped mine together, but you can arrange them however you like. Then, top it all off with a large festive bow at the bottom, and VOILA! That’s that!

A big thanks to Amy for today’s Fortnight of Fright post! I totally need to make one of these for my house now. This is so cute!!!
