One of the most common indications that a home is ready for the holidays is the classic fall wreath hanging on the front door. Head out to any local craft show or farmers’ market around this time of year and you will have your choice of gorgeous wreaths.
Those fancy wreaths can often come with prices that run up into the hundreds, but they usually don’t include anything more than some basic items that you can pick up at any craft store for a fraction of the cost.
The key to making a stunning fall wreath has always been having the creativity to put those craft store items together in an interesting way. But thanks to the magic of the Internet, we can just look at some of the creative things that other people have done and copy those ideas for ourselves.
Here are six of our favorite fall wreath ideas that you might try to imitate for yourself this year!
The Fall Burlap Monogram Wreath
Burlap wreaths have exploded in popularity over the past few years, and this is an elegant way to capitalize on that trend. It also includes the monogram letter, which not only personalizes the wreath, but also adds a classic touch to this modern trend.
To create this style wreath on your own, start with making a plain burlap wreath with the monogram letter of your choice mounted in the middle. Then all you have to do is add the colored accessories in any style that you like.
The Scarecrow Wreath
This adorable fall wreath is built around the idea of painting the face of a scarecrow in the middle of the wreath. That might be tough to do free hand without any reference point, but if you can do your best to imitate this one, you can probably come up with something pretty close.
Once the face is taken care of, the rest of this wreath comes together pretty quickly. All you have to do is add a cute hat and a few other seasonal items and you’re all set!

Copying this idea is actually really simple. All you have to do is start with a basic burlap wreath, then add the hat, an orange burlap bow, and some feathers for the tail. Stick a couple of feet at the bottom and you’ve got your very own turkey for the front door.
Aw shucks! This is such a great wreath idea!
