8 DIY Fall Wreaths to Dress Up Your Front Door

Want to instantly bring a touch of fall into your home decor? Try a wreath! Better yet, make one yourself. We've rounded up eight easy DIY fall wreaths that will look great on your front door or inside the house, whether your taste is cozy and rustic, sleek and modern, or if you want to add a bit of spooky style for Halloween.

Rustic: Mini Pumpkin Wreath



Instead of making a wreath with bulky plastic gourds, try using putka pods, which are natural, dried seed pods that look exactly like tiny pumpkins. When hot glued over a foam wreath form and embellished with a pretty ribbon, it makes an elegant statement for fall that can be used year after year.

They look like tiny pumpkins, but this wreath is actually made with putka pods, which are natural dried seed pods. Best of all, they won't deteriorate like real pumpkins. Get the how-to >>
