Get tips and tricks for creating an eclectic Autumn wreath plus enjoy other bloggers’ DIY Fall wreaths in this creative blog hop.

Hi there!  How are you today?  I’ve been having so much fun doing Fall DIYs that I jumped on the chance to join some other fabulous ladies for a Fall wreath blog hop hosted by Ariel at PMQ for Two!  (Scroll down to see participating bloggers.)

I’ve been known to recycle wreaths and greenery so I used my dollar store eucalyptus wreath as a starting off point for an eclectic wreath with succulents and brass bells.

Here’s what I used:

Grapevine wreath form

Eucalyptus  and lamb’s ear stems

A few pinecones

Plastic grapes

Succulent picks

Bird pick

Brass bells

Brown florist wire

I always trim my stems first, leaving 3-4 inches.  Starting with the larger greenery, I just stick the stem into the wreath form, evenly spacing out each stem.

For pieces that need extra help staying in place, I wrap them with brown florist wire that camouflages perfectly with the wreath. 

Then I add more layers of stems, 3-4 of each kind, until I get the fullness I want.

The last step is to embellish!  I just used groupings of succulents, faux herbs, grapes, and attached some brass bells to add more global eclectic style.

It took all of 10 minutes to put it together!  I love how it’s full and a little messy.   I’ve been dying to adorn our beautiful front door with a wreath and I think this one is perfect for the wood tone.
