Easy Fall Coastal Wreath

I have always DIY’ed and decorated my homes. Waaaaay before DIY was popular. The funny thing is, I’d never made a wreath. Not for any occasion ever befor blogging. Today I’m sharing my simple coastal fall wreath with a monogram. My coastal fall wreath is part of this year’s mega Fall Ideas Tour.
I started with a few faux floral stems and picks and fall items I had from last year, a large grapevine wreath and a big white wood letter “W” that I painted with stripes in fall colors. First, I pulled the individual floral stems sections apart.
I wanted to build a spray on the bottom of my coastal fall wreath so I started with the longest pieces first and slipped the ends into the grapevine wreath. I kept adding items from both sides inward until I filled in center section.
The only hot glue I used was to add a few acorns. I wired the ribbon and the monogram onto the grapevine form.
Of course I added a starfish to keep it coastal;)
It looks great on our front door. Yes, my front door is copper :) I share how to faux painted a copper door in another post here on Hometalk.
My monogram wreath matches my fall monogram door mat I made last year. The tutorial for that project is another Hometalk project I share. You may notice I also painted my wreath hangar to blend in with my door because it stuck out like a sore thumb in its original color and drove me crazy every time I walked up to the front door!
This wreath is part of a 32 blogger tour sharing fall decor, tablescapes, mantels and more. To see the rest please follow the link posted to visit my blog.
