I don’t think I realized how many possible variations there were on the standard door wreath until last year when I started searching for Christmas wreaths for this gallery, but I have to say that they have become one of my favorite decorating elements, and I love to browse all of the creative DIY ideas on Pinterest.
Fall, like Christmas, seems to invite this creativity, and there is no shortage of fun autumn wreaths to choose from. I’m particularly drawn to the yarn wreaths, and I love Amy’s idea to use interchangeable flowers (#5) so that she can use her wreath base throughout the year!

I’m pretty much a fan of yarn wreaths in any form, but I especially love the color blocks that Emily uses in this yarn wreath, which definitely catch your eye!
I wouldn’t recommend hanging this one outside in the elements, but if you’re looking for a pretty indoor wreath, this is a fun idea. Make paper leaves from old book pages and then fasten them to a wreath form for a vintage-style wreath that is a sure conversation starter!

Here’s another take on the yarn wreath, and this one has additional embellishments and contrasting yarn that really pops. With felt flowers in a variety of fall colors, it’s really a gorgeous wreath to welcome fall! (And wouldn’t it be gorgeous in Christmas colors too?!)
This gathered burlap wreath is gorgeous and oh so easy to do! Myra first introduced me to the beauty of burlap last year, and although I’m still trying to convince my husband, I think it’s a perfect material for fall and Christmas!
This interchangeable wreath from Amy at Mom Advice is really a genius idea. Rather than creating separate wreaths for each season, you can make a single yarn-wrapped base with interchangeable flowers (and other elements!) across the changing seasons. Genius, right?
