How To Make A Deconstructed Fall Wreath

September 29, 2023

Today I'm sharing how I made a deconstructed fall wreath. "So what's a deconstructed wreath?" you may ask.

Well, I'm no expert on the subject, but I believe a deconstructed wreath is less traditional, more modern. Less structured, more casual - asymmetrical even. Throw in a less-is-more attitude and you've got what I call a deconstructed wreath.

I started with a plain 26 inch eucalyptus leaf wreath as the base for my DIY deconstructed fall wreath. I found it on clearance at Target for $10 (down from $35.00). The eucalyptus leaves are attached to a traditional grapevine wreath.

There was no question that the perfect place for hanging this wreath was on my DIY Vintage Shutter Turned French-Inspired Candle Sconce.

In a way I loved the wreath as is, but I also knew that I'd eventually get antsy and want to change it up somehow. So why not for fall?

In keeping with the simple vibe I was hoping for, I decided on adding only two embellishments to this fall wreath: an Autumn hops stem set of two and four Dollar Tree white pumpkin and pine cone floral picks. You can find similar white pumpkin floral picks online.

I purposefully placed the hops stems so that they both hung in the same direction, making the whole thing look a bit asymmetrical. The fact that they were trailing stems made them perfect for this deconstructed wreath style.

And while I loved THAT version of the wreath as well, I wanted to add one more pop of color.

Enter the white pumpkin and pine cone floral picks. Those were placed a bit more strategically (read: symmetrical) but overall I think the look is casual yet elegant. And I love it!

The hops stems and pumpkins weren't even permanently attached! I literally just popped them into the eucalyptus leaf foliage where they sit until the next season/holiday when I will pull them out and replace them with new floral picks. Doesn't get easier than that.
