DIY Wooden Bead Fall Wreath with Dried and Faux Flowers
I feel like everyone I know jumps from Halloween straight to Christmas, but I LOVE Thanksgiving. I love how it is focused around gratitude, thanks, gathering and family. It’s a time to focus on what really matters in life. I love that it falls in a season of change, color and beauty. So, while everyone is enjoying their faux light-up Christmas trees, I am enjoying the home decor of pumpkin spice, harvest wheat, and muted colors. I recently posted a picture of our fall porch decor, and asked my followers whether I should add a wreath or not. The top answer I received was to add a wreath. I couldn’t find any fall wreaths that I wanted to buy, so I decided to make one. I have seen in the past wooden bead fall wreaths, but I wasn’t sure where to buy one. So I decided I’d make a wooden bead fall wreath, and I really love the results!

DIY Wooden Bead Fall Wreath
- 16″ Thick wire ring
- wooden beads
- Dried florals or faux flowers like these or these or these
- floral wire
- wire cutters
- Take the thick hoop and find where it is soldered together, then take your wire cutters and cut it. You may need to bend it a bet and work the wire to break it.
- Thread the wooden beads on the wire until it is about 3/4 full. You want to leave enough space for your florals.
- With the floral wire, tighten the wire around the bottom of the wooden beads to secure the beads in place.
- Gather a small bundle of dried and faux flowers and secure to the hoop with the floral wire. Cover the hoop opening with florals.
- Once the florals are covering the bottom of the hoop, cut a long piece of floral wire and wrap about the florals and thread through some of the wooden beads. This will help hold everything in place.
