Fall Wreath for the Front Door
Fall Wreaths For Front Door 2021 are taking over pinterest and google right now and rightfully so! Autumn is right around the corner and today, I’m sharing how to make a gorgeous Fall wreath using leaves and glue!
Hanging a Fall wreath on your front door is the best way to welcome guests and add curb appeal. At the time, our front door was under construction so I decided to hang my DIY Fall leaf wreath on our back porch above the bench.
This section of our covered porch is right near our back door so the bench provides a perfect spot for the kids to sit and remove their shoes before coming inside.
Steps to make a fall wreath for a front door
Step 1. First I started with a grapevine wreath that I purchased on Amazon. Grapevine wreaths provide a fantastic surface when creating your own fall wreath. Depending on how big you want your wreath to be, will determine the grapevine wreath size. This is an 8″ but I typically would have gone with a 12″ wreath.
Step 2. I used a variety of faux leaves that I had left over from last fall. You can buy them at any local craft store. These happened to be wired together as a leaf swag/garland so I simply cut the leaves off with wire cutters and hot glued them around the wreath. You can buy a leaf swag on Amazon for under $20!
Step 3. I worked my way around the wreath being sure to overlap the leaves and glue them in place.
Step 4. Once I was finished with the leaves, I gathered a group of dried flowers and decorative pine cones that I had purchased last fall from Home Goods. They usually come in a bag and are called vase fillers. They are inexpensive and perfect for wreaths!

I tucked the decorative elements in between the leaves and hot glued them in place. Our front door is a deep warm brown tone and the orange and yellow leaves will pop against the door color.
I also cut a few pieces of dried ornamental grass that we had in our garden and glued in place.
