Boutique, extra large, full and luxurious wreaths often cost several hundred dollars to purchase. Learn how to make your own DIY extra large fall wreath with this easy to follow, step-by-step tutorial!
I recently decorated my front porch for fall in beautiful purples and pinks, and for the door decor I originally had placed a simple magnolia wreath. The entire porch fell a little flat and the door was begging for something more! I sifted through my faux florals to see what I had to work with and then headed to the craft store to purchase a few extra supplies. I had everything I needed on hand with the exception of the filler flowers.
The total cost of this wreath to make from scratch, including all supplies listed below marked at 20% off at Michaels, is around $100. You may be able to make it for less by using fillers instead of the garlands I used. The benefit of using garlands is that you instantaneously achieve full and fluffy wreaths with little effort! Also, since I don’t use any hot glue, I can easily take my wreaths apart each season and repurpose all materials to create a new look!

Extra Large Fall Wreath Tutorial
Wrap the eucalyptus garland around the 30″ Grapevine Wreath and secure with floral wire. Do the same with the 24″ Grapevine Wreath and magnolia leaf garland. Next, place the 24″ grapevine wreath on top of the 30″ wreath and secure the two together with floral wire. I like to secure everything at the top, bottom, and both sides to ensure a stable base.
Now that the wreath base is complete, it’s time for the fun part! Cut your hydrangea and dahlia stems, leaving about 3 inches of wire stem, and stuff the individual florals into the grapevine wreath. Do the same with your pumpkin picks. Next, cut and separate your fern and berry picks and place in any empty spots. I like to concentrate the ferns around the bottom of the wreath to give a full and fluffy appearance.
To hang the wreath on the door, I use a removable 3m command door hook on my door to hang the wreath and it works like a charm! Just follow the package directions closely.
You can use this same tutorial with various greenery and florals to create a full and gorgeous wreath for any season!
