7 DIY Autumn Wreaths to Celebrate the Season

Ideas for making your own autumn wreaths.

Now that the Autumnal Equinox has passed it is time to say goodbye to summer and move our attention to celebrating the beauty and bounty of the fall season. Autumn wreaths are a gorgeous way to celebrate the season and to decorate your door or entryway.

The brilliant colors of autumn just lend themselves to being honored–scarlet, goldenrod, burnt orange, moss, russet and more– and humans have a very long tradition of honoring and celebrating the season and the harvest. Decorating with autumn wreaths is one way of continuing that tradition.

If you are crafty and love to get creative, then it’s time to make your own autumn wreath. If that sounds completely terrifying, don’t worry.

Just think, when you are  finished you can pour yourself a mug of hot apple cider and sit back to admire your work.
