Affordable, Fast and Easy DIY Fall Sunflower Wreath Tutorial


Raise your hand if you love pretty fall wreaths? 

Now, raise your hand if you love the prices of those pretty fall wreaths? Yeah, me neither. 

I've been looking for a fall wreath to hang on our front door for a while but every time I found one the price was way more than what I wanted to pay for. I spotted a few that I really liked and decided that I could make one similar for much cheaper. And I did. And I love it! 

And now I'm here to share how I made this so you can make one too. The total cost for this wreath was $18.57 (excluding tax) and took me around 10 minutes to make. 

I was looking for a wooden wreath that was not all brown. I liked ones that had some white in them and Hobby Lobby had the perfect one. They also had tons of fall floral out so I chose two floral pieces and headed home. 

Also, side note: this is not a sponsored post in any way, although I wish it were because that means Hobby Lobby would be sponsoring my blog, and wouldn't that be a dream come true? 

Here is what I purchased as well as the supplies I used: 

*  Twisted wood wreath from Hobby Lobby - $9.59 after using a 40% off coupon 
*  Sunflower from Hobby Lobby - $4.79 
*  Flower bunch from Hobby Lobby - $4.19
*  Hot Glue Gun
*  Something sharp to cut the flower stems with as they have metal in them. 

Here is the wreath and flowers I purchased:


I started by cutting off the long stem from the sunflower and removing the wire entirely.


I poked the remainder of the stem through the wood in the wreath. I don't think it has to have hot glue but this was going on my front door so I wanted to make sure it was secure. 


I then removed flowers from the large stem of flowers and intertwined it into the wreath until it looked right.


And that is it! It was so simple and easy and I think it turned out lovely.


Here it is on my teal door. I think it is a really fun fall edition for this season.


I had a lot of fun putting this together and I was glad that it was fast and turned out really well. I hope it is a help to you and if you decide to make your own wreath please do send me a picture of it!

Do you like wreaths? 

Have you ever made your own? 

Have you ever seen something you really liked but just decided to make it for cheaper?

  1. haha! We both posted about DIY projects on our blogs today :) I LOVE THIS! It looks so great and is simple but really pretty. Maybe I will try this out for a Christmas wreath! I have a fall one I bought at Target last year for about $20, but I don't have a Christmas one. This is fun!
