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 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!

    1. Thanks Christy! :) I love these colors too! Not sure if I’ll ever go back to traditional Fall colors! I love your greens too. :)

  2. Beautiful wreath Nancy :) Love the colours! All these fall decor ideas are starting to get me in the mood to decorate…but still not there yet :)

    1. Hi Annie!
      Thank you. :) Ha, yes, you and me both!! I reluctantly started because I wanted to share for the blog and readers. But I think I’m finally on board now! ;)

  3. Love the teals being used in Autumn decor. Last year was my first time and did it to show support for Food Allergy, for my granddaughter. Going to be even more used this year.

  4. I love the way you put your wreath together and that you showed us how step by step. The colors look great together. I use those colors in my living room. Thanks for another little bit of inspiration!

  5. HI Nancy,
    Love those colors! I too use blues & greens and don’t care for oranges. I like how you infused with the copper accents. I’ll be making a trip to Michaels this weekend. Thanks for all the great ideas!

    1. Thanks Andrea!! :) Yes, you and me both on the orange. I do love that I can add in a little copper instead. Copper I do like!! ;)

  6. I love the wreath!!! I’m usually a traditional orange/brown fall person, but I love the blue in the wreath!! Even though I don’t have any coastal decorations, I do have a lot of blue touches throughout my house. Love the wreath!!

  7. Thanks for the lovely inspiration, I recently changed to shades of Aqua also, plus kind of a light coral melon color in my kitchen. The Aqua works so well with many colors. Will have to try something on this order for my Fall Front Door.

    1. Aw thanks Andi!!! How the heck are ya?!!! And yes, Christy is still the whiz at wreaths but I’m catching on!!! ;)

  8. This is gorgeous. I need to go to Michaels now! Can you give us an estimate of what it cost to make this please? Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you! :) Yes, you do!! ;) I sure can, and will edit the post to include that info. I spent $20.62 for everything you see, except the small pumpkins and shells. I already had those.
      Still, much cheaper than buying a ready made one! And you can customize it to your decor/liking.
      Have fun!

  9. This is gorgeous! I love the complementary color scheme with variations of blue (aqua) and orange (copper) with the creams and whites and a little green. So pretty! I love making wreaths, and you’ve inspired me to pull out some supplies and get busy! Never would have thought to add seashells to a fall wreath, you are a genius! I live in Oklahoma, nowhere near the beach, lol, although we do have lots of lakes, but I still love coastal decor and incorporated it into our two full bathrooms in our new house with pale aqua walls and sand colored tile, and I have boxes of seashells from beach trips and the craft store, so I may have to make a coastal inspired wreath now! Thanks for sharing, love your blog!

    1. Thank you, Vicki! :) I just love these colors too. I think they are perfect for fall. And oh yes, I think that’s great! Lakes count!! ;) Having seashells and such from places visited…I think that’s the perfect thing to decorate with. Great memories. xoxo
