Gathered Fall Wreath

Gathered fall wreath with pinecones and acorns fall wreath

I love making a fall wreath. I adore walking in the woods and collecting beautiful things from nature. Pine cones and acorns are no exception. I also love to decorate my home with natural elements through the fall and winter holidays. So, I combined my love of the woods and created this perfect gathered fall wreath.

It took only 5 items to create this wreath and it is one of the simpler crafts I have done. If you would like to make one, please visit my post for HGTV Gardens for all the step-by-step instructions complete with photos.

  • This is pretty – I also love natural elements they seem to calm me. I'm ready for fall but the temperatures here tell me otherwise. We're still in the 90's. Have a great weekend.

  • Love your wreath. It"s a great idea.

  • It really is perfect…and truly should be named "A Walk in the Woods". Looks like with careful storage it will last a while…if the squirrels don't think it's dinner 🙂

  • That is awesome!! Unfortunately, we don't have acorns, or pinecones here on the prairies. I'll have to be content with admiring your creation.

    wouldn't it be nice for them to offer a kit for those of us who do not have woods to peruse through.. I live in Florida, but I love this wreath. sounds like a lot of us are in the same boat!

    • Oh that is a great idea! Thanks for sharing it. You can also find these items in the craft stores as well as on Etsy too for those of you who have other beautiful things like palm trees instead of oaks. 🙂

    Love this Gathered Fall Wreath Craft. Can you tell me how warm the oven should be for the pine cones and acorns? This information wasn’t included in the directions.

    • Hello Julie, Sure- you place the acorns at 175 degrees F oven with the door cracked turning every half an hour. Heat for about an hour. Supervise and check on them often. Avoid burning the acorns. Never leave them unattended in the oven for risk of fire.
