How to make the Simple Fall Wreath DIY
Plug your glue gun in and let it heat up while you prepare the floral for the wreath. Remove any tags from the grapevine wreath before you begin working. Your first step is going to be to cut the sunflowers. Use your wire cutters and cut the sunflowers with a stem about 2 to 3 inches long. Bend it upwards, so it will slide into the wreath easily.
Start your Fall Wreath DIY by placing the three sunflowers together on the side. You will glue them in place, one at a time. Run a line of glue along the stem before pressing it into the grapevine wreath, then put some glue under the head of the flower, and press it against the wreath for ten seconds. Do this with each flower, until you’ve done all three.
Next, cut down the stem on the two pine cone bunches with the two leaves attached. I just found this big fall leaf bunch in the Walmart floral department, and the pine cones with the two leaves were a part of the bunch. You can also find great sprays on Amazon. Snip them with a stem of about 2 to 3 inches like you did the sunflowers. Press their stems into the top of the flower bunch, and the bottom of the flower bunch. Think of them as a sort of frame for the sunflowers. Glue them down like you did the sunflowers.

Next, remove the leaves from their stems entirely. Use the hot glue gun hot glue gun to run a bead of glue on the bottom of your leaf. Glue one red leaf on top, and one red leaf on the bottom of the wreath. Then continue around the circle of the wreath and glue the orange leaves next. Then glue one yellow leaf directly across from your sunflower bunch.
Allow your glue to dry for ten minutes before hanging it on your front door, or putting it out for display. Your wreath will be fine on the front porch, or outside, for the whole fall season. If you have super high winds in your area, it may be best to bring it in during those times.
