Who says you can’t use the color blue and things like seashells for fall? This simple and quick coastal fall wreath is perfect for those who live at the beach or just want to keep a little summer in their decor moving into fall.
I really enjoy the more neutral colors I’ve used occasionally for fall. I don’t get too excited about the color “burnt orange” for the most part.
Although I don’t really mind a little during the fall… but as you can see, I like to pair it with blue. ;)
However, I did pop some orange in and around in this previous year’s fall home tour >>> Traditional Fall Home Tour
This one was pretty simple to make and I’m going to share below exactly how I did it below.
Coastal Fall Wreath
I stopped by Michael’s and picked up all the supplies I used in today’s project and thankfully they were 40% off. Win!
Here’s what I started with…
I usually like to create most of the wreath before hot gluing it. That way, I can get a feel for what I’m going to do without committing.
I usually have no clue at first, it just ends up coming together as I go.
And how that works is I usually buy things that I think look good together, color-wise and plant-wise, then I come home and just start playing around with it all.
For this one, I started with the largest flowers (stems cut)…
…placing them evenly spaced around the wreath as shown.
Next, I added the blue ones in the same way…
….again trying to evenly space them around.
Then I added the leaves that I took off the stems of the flowers…
(that’s a great way to get some use out of them too)
….and some of the small pumpkins I painted for a previous year’s fall decor.
Here you can see my this one that was a favorite of mine >>> Fall Tablescape.
Next, I added a few seashells and started adding the copper-colored sprigs in and around everything…
At this point, I had everything about how I wanted it so it was time to glue it in place.
I gently removed and replaced (with hot glue) everything, working my way around.
I continued to add the copper-colored sprigs until I thought it was full enough.
And voila!! …. new coastal fall wreath.
About as simple as they come and a little different than what you think of for a fall wreath.
I love that I can have those neutral colors I love so much (cream, white and BLUE) and still have a bit of copper-color for fall.
Here it is hung on our front door… (that we are replacing at some point with wood stained, 3/4 window door, no storm door…and not wait to pretty up this front porch of ours)
….but then decided it needed to go on my hall tree that was still out on my porch at the time.

I added some more of my painted pumpkins below too.

I hope you guys will stop in at your local craft store (or thrift store!), pick up a few things you like together, and make a wreath too.
PIN it to save it!
I made a quick little how-to video too… :)
