How to Create a Rustic Fall Wreath

This Rustic Fall Wreath is not only pretty, but it’s incredibly simple and inexpensive to make!


Good morning friends!

I’m SO excited to introduce you to one of my favorite new bloggy friends LZ from The Summery Umbrella today! I actually first connected with her in Instagram as I fell head-over-heels in love with her beautiful feed. And, because every photo had me popping over to her blog to read more, The Summery Umbrella quickly became one of my very faves to follow!

You can imagine that I was beyond thrilled when she reached out to me to swap posts on one another’s blogs! It’s always fun to have a chance to introduce you to what inspires me!

After sharing this super yummy Fall Sangria on her blog yesterday, today LZ will be showing y’all how she created this lovely Rustic Fall Wreath!


Hi there Making it in the Mountains readers! I’m LZ from The Summery Umbrella, and I am so excited to share with you how to make this rustic and natural fall wreath.

Ok, so.. it’s not exactlyyy fall yet, but I can’t help it. I am a natural-born-love-love-love-love-fall kinda gal.

It all started one chilly, fall afternoon when my mother announced that is was almost my birthday. I ran around in circles, I screamed with delight, and started naming off every toy that I could think of to ensure that I would receive them all.

Wait. Just kidding. I have no idea how I responded wayyyyy back then. 😉

However, my little girl Miss Ava, she’s a different story. She cracks me up! It doesn’t matter what toy commercial (or any product for that matter!) that comes on the tv during one of her programs she is bound and determined to make sure that Mike and I know that she wants it for Christmas. It doesn’t even matter how many times we tell her that Santa can only bring so many.

She insists that it is better to tell us that she wants them all than to have one forgotten.

Okey dokey artichokey.



Meanwhile, a few months back around the spring timeframe I created this natural spring wreath.

Guess what? This is the dried version of that wreath!

So, all you need to do is add a few simple materials, and BAM you got a brand-spanking new wreath that is ready for the upcoming fall season. Woo hoo!



How to Create a Rustic Fall Wreath

First, I hot glued a few pinecones randomly onto my wreath.

Then, I wrapped my new ribbon in a lovely shade of burnt orange all topsy-turvy, and tucked in the loose end piece in the back.



Last, a few artificial fall flowers completed this look!



And that’s all there is too it. Wasn’t that simple, but also so pretty?




Thanks so much for having me, Kristi!

I hope everyone has a great week, and hope to chat with you soon 🙂
