Create your own DIY fall wreath with acorns and burlap to add to your fall decor. It’s a simple project that packs a big punch! I have had this acorn wreath on my to-do list for over a year and I’m so glad that I was able to finally pull it off. I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t come out right or that the concept wasn’t as easy as it seemed but luckily it WAS easy. If I can do it, so can you so let’s get started.
- Darice 10 inch Straw Wreath Form.
- Darice Acorns (6-7 bags).
- Darice Hot Glue Gun & Glue.
- Darice Burlap Ribbon.
Step 1. Glue one row of acorns around the top of the straw wreath form. I glued them down in a rotating fashion (as seen in the image below.) This is the only row I did this on. I randomly placed the acorns however they would fit after this first initial row was done.
Step 2. Start working on your second row of acorns. You will just want to glue the acorns on in any direction they will fit. There won’t be any rhyme or reason to it and that’s okay. That’s why each DIY fall wreath will be unique!
Step 3. At this point you could continue with another row right under the last one so that you are working towards the outside of the DIY fall wreath but I decided to start working on the inside next. The only logic to that was that the inner ring was smaller and it wouldn’t take me as long. Ha! You will need about two rows of acorns for the inner ring.
Step 4. Once the inner ring is complete, finish up the outer ring with another 1-2 rows. At this point you will also want to go around the entire DIY fall wreath and maybe fill in any gaps that you find. I used some acorns without caps for those smaller spaces.
See? It looks great flat up against my front door. No one will even know that the back of the wreath is bare. This entire DIY fall wreath project took me an hour or two to complete. It was not difficult at all, just a bit time consuming with all the hot gluing. Not to mention, I had a little “helper” stealing acorns the entire time.
