Pink and Cream DIY Modern Fall Wreath (20 min project!)

Here’s how to make a DIY modern fall wreath using faux fall flowers and a wooden embroidery hoop. It’s easy and affordable and takes about 20 minutes!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a wreath online and thought, “I could make that.”

Wreaths are one of the easiest DIY’s out there and this modern fall wreath is no exception.

I’m going to walk you step-by-step through the process so you can have your own gorgeous modern hoop wreath this afternoon.

How to Make This Modern Fall Wreath

1. Separate embroidery hoops

To start the wreath-making process, you’ll remove the two embroidery hoops from each other. I chose to use the outer hoop with the metal piece on it just because it was bigger.

Embroidery hoops are a great base for making wreaths because they are thinner and sleeker compared to other wreath bases like Styrofoam or the dried grapevine wreath (I despise those!).

2. Remove flowers from stems

Next, remove all of the flowers from their stems. Be sure to leave a little stem length on the berries and pumpkins so you can poke them into place.

3. Arrange the flowers on the hoop

Do this BEFORE you start gluing.

I first arranged my wreath with all of the flowers at the bottom. Then I turned to Pinterest to make sure I loved the arrangement and decided to go with an asymmetrical wreath.

4. Glue flowers to hoop

Start gluing beginning at the top and working your way down.

I glued the large flowers on first as a sort of base and then added the small pieces next.

If any of the pieces felt loose when I picked up the wreath, I added some more glue to secure them to the surrounding flowers.

5. Hang your wreath

At first, I added a line of hot glue on the inside of the hoop so that there would be something tacky to hold it straight on my wreath hook. But then I saw someone tie string in two places on the hoop to hang it and liked that solution a lot more!

It’s still a little lopsided just because all of the weight is on the one side, but it does make it a little straighter!

This is a really simple fall decoration to put together and can be personalized with the flowers of your choice.

You can also change up the materials to make a modern holiday wreath for Christmas. Instead of flowers, you can use holly and garland or wherever your creative juices lead!
