Fall Metal and Leaf Wreath DIY

I am in love with an Anthropologie fall metal and leaf wreath but I made a similar one instead. Mine cost one-quarter of the price to make and I love it!

Fall Metal and Leaf Wreath DIY

I had so much fun making this fall metal flower and leaf wreath. It took some figuring out but I did it! I am so excited to share how you can make one of these too!

The Leaf Wreath

Leaf wreath. Leaf wreath. Leaf wreath. Ok, try to say that three times fast. I still can’t do it.

But I can make one!

Today I joined a fun group of blogger friends and we have each made a fall wreath. Be sure to check out their wreath DIYs below. Here is mine!

Fall Metal and Leaf Wreath DIY

I absolutely loved making this wreath. Some of you may wonder where I get the inspiration for my DIYs. I spend a fair amount, maybe too much time, looking at websites like Anthropologie. As a huge fan of Anthropologie decor items, I know their prices are a bit high. I saw a wreath on their website a couple of months ago that I fell in love with, but it was $198 dollars. That is so much more than I spend on decor items, so I promptly moved on to the eight billion other things that take up space in my head. This wreath, however, has been nagging at me. Was there a way that I could maybe make my own version of the wreath for a fraction of the cost?

When I found out that today’s blog hop group topic was a fall wreath, I instantly knew what I was going to make!

The Anthropologie Leaf Wreath Hack

Below are photos of both of the wreaths. Mine is on the left and it cost about $48 to make. The one from Anthropologie on the right cost $198.

What do you think? I think I created the essence of the Anthropologie wreath, but I softened it up just a bit with the fabric leaves.

How to Make a Metal and Fall Leaf Wreath

  • one – I found all of my supplies on line. You need a glue gun, grapevine wreath, assorted acrylic paint colors (I used cream, orange, copper, and a light brown). I used one package of these leaves and metal flowers you can find here and here.
  • two – The first step is to paint the grapevine wreath with the cream paint. This is optional but I love how it turned out.
  • three – Using your glue gun, add the leaves all the way around the wreath. Be sure to glue them in the same direction.
  • four – Once you are done, they should look like this.
  • five – Paint the flowers in the desired colors. I mixed together a lot of the paint colors.
  • six – Let the flowers dry completely.
  • seven – This is how the flowers looked when I was done painting them.
  • eight – Place the flowers on top of the wreath (before gluing) to confirm the placement. Glue them on one at a time. If the larger flowers are glued only to the leaves, place more glue to secure them to the grapevine wreath. That’s it!

What I love about this fall wreath is that it is not the traditional orange and brown fall wreath. It’s more like fall is peaking around the corner with a softened palette of burnished orange, together with antique white.

Another thing I love about this wreath is that it works so well in just about any room in our home. I hung it on the front of this shutter and I love how the textures play together. The shutter is a little bit rough and rusty and the wreath is a little bit soft with metal accents. I attached the wreath with some fishing line and a tiny nail tapped into the top of the shutter. You could hang it on a window in the same way. It’s that simple.

You can also prop a wreath against something. This corbel worked perfectly.

  1. What an absolutely gorgeous wreath!! So unique! Your wreath is much more beautiful Anthropologie’s wreath! Those leaves! Those flowers! Swoon-worthy! Even though I have about 100 projects in the works (that I really need to finish….) I’m definitely going to order supplies and make that wreath! Thanks for the inspiration! Again!

  2. Gorgeous! Seconded on ordering supplies. My daughter will love making this with me.

    Incidentally, I am kicking myself right now for not buying the small container of plastic white pumpkins at Target this morning as I realized on the way into work, that they would be amazing if I decoupaged them with the “Vintage Halloween” napkins I picked up from Williams Sonoma a couple years ago. The struggle is real with decorating!

    Now I need small pumpkins AND wreath supplies! HA!

    1. Oh no! That’s ok, luckily we are just at the start of Fall. You have plenty of time! Let me know how it turns out.

  3. Love the paper Fall pumpkins. Is there a tutorial on that I couldn’t find one? I love the wreath I might give that a try also!

      1. I just realized The pumpkin pictured with your anthropology wreath is not made with a cricket machine, it is wood? And you have to purchase it? Thanks

    1. Did you find the tutorial for the paper pumpkin that is pictured with the anthropology wreath Barker? Leslie did respond to me and said it was from last week on the blog but I don’t find it. The one in the picture above is made of paper.

  7. Absolutely stunning…You are so creative and what a talent you have in so many areas!!! So glad I follow you..Love how your projects are always on the less expensive side but still looks like you spent a million…

  8. WOW! Your wreath is so much prettier than the one from Anthropology! LOVE it! Those soft leaves really make it special. I also love the oval shaped wreath. They are my all time favorite!

    May have missed it but how many packs of the flowers/leaves did you purchase? I love your crafts and home decor ideas you share and now own quite a few like or near to some!
