Simple Autumn Wreath – Quick Crafts

In case anyone missed it, I love a wreath… So it seemed only right that I got to making something I could dig out around October every year to add a little seasonal touch. With that in mind I headed to Hobbycraft, and picked up some supplies to make my own simple autumn wreath.

I wanted something more autumnal than Halloween based, but that worked for both aspects. It’s a nice little addition before heading into my favourite season of all!

Simple Autumn Wreath

First I headed to Hobbycraft and picked up a wreath ring (I’m not buying any more… maybe). Polystyrene isn’t ideal, but they’re so easy to work with compared to their natural counterparts. This one is 25cm (£2).

I also got some twine (£2 each) as it turned out I needed a second one, because, yeah. Now you know.

I started out, very simply wrapping the entire ring with hessian twine.

This is a nice base. Already feeling pretty autumn with the natural colouring, and of course this means I can leave some negative space. White doesn’t really work as a background in Autumn does it?

I had some orange ribbon in my stash, which I’d already said I was going to work like mad to use throughout Autumn to make all of the DIY decor match, because matching just makes me feel better! So, choosing to leave some negative space, I then wound the ribbon around the wrapped wreath ring. (Bonus tongue twister for you).

Of course I didn’t find any convenient lengths of black ribbon in my stash, so I decided to keep going with the whole orange idea, and tied a fun bow. I wasn’t too fussy about it being even, though of course I could have cut the lengths longer or shorter to make it tidy.

To finish, I needed… something. Honestly I had no idea what I was looking for, but I ended up in Poundland of all places and found a bag of glittery pumpkins, and apparently they are perfect. I now have still got a bag of glittery pumpkins to find a use for though! There were about 20, and I used four. They were plain orange, so I used some green glitter to finish the pumpkins, adding a small pop of a different colour.

I added some string as a hanging loop, and here is the finished article! What do you think?

  1. 😍 The wreath you made looks amazing! The orange pumpkins are a great addition, and I can’t wait to see what you do with the other 16 glittery pumpkins.

    Thank you for explaining the process and where to get all the materials. 😊

    1. Thank you!
      I have no idea what I’m going to do with them yet! They might end up in the stash for next year lol.

  2. I don’t celebrate Halloween, so I won’t be making anything. But I love this idea and the pumpkins really add the finishing touch, don’t they?

  3. In my previous comment, I mentioned I don’t celebrate Halloween. I just wanted to clarify that it’s not just Halloween I don’t celebrate, autumn also isn’t a big deal for me in terms of decorations. Instead, I prefer to go outside and see the leaves fall. But I really do like this idea 🙂

    1. I never used to do much at all, and the blog is definitely something that makes me think about seasonal decorating! Getting out in autumn (when it’s not raining) is always my favourite thing… Well, that and cosy movie nights in!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I actually love how simple this is. Sometimes the more overly done ones, while they may also look beautiful, put me off because I’m sure I’ll make a mess of it haha. This one you’ve done looks lovely and minimalistic!

    1. Haha I’ve done some bigger wreath projects (that look harder, but aren’t as difficult as they appear!) but I really wanted to share how you can make something pretty and seasonal, quite simply!
      Thank you for stopping by!
