Fall Decor In Our Home With A Natural Look
A Natural Look Works Best
When it comes to fall decor in our home, we find that incorporating natural elements works best. This coordinates with our overall style. Traditional fall wreaths with bright colors do not seamlessly fit in with our decor. So we opt for a more natural color palette.
To capture the essence of autumn, the holidays, and winter, we decorate our home with an assortment of nuts. Such as walnuts and hazelnuts. Some are left in their natural state, while others are given a touch of elegance with gold and champagne craft paint. These nut accents bring a warm and earthy quality to our space.
In addition to nuts, we add dried artichokes, pine cones, and, of course, one of our all-time favorites real acorns! There’s something charming about the beauty of acorns, and the way they complement our natural decor.
Using Natural Elements From The Grocery Store
Using Fall In Its Natural From Your Own Yard
Another advantage of using nuts in our home decor is how easily accessible they are. They can be found at the local grocery store, making it convenient to incorporate them into our seasonal displays. The versatility of nuts is truly remarkable as they transition seamlessly from fall to the holiday season, making them timeless.
My fondness for acorns is in the hundreds. They are cleaned and preserved and gathered from our own yard. I’ve discovered an easy and effective method to preserve them, ensuring they can be enjoyed for years to come. It’s a wonderful way to cherish the memories associated with these acorns and use them in our seasonal decor.
As you decorate your home for fall, embrace natural elements and choose pieces that resonate with your personal style. Whether it’s the warmth of nuts, natural pinecones, or the beauty of acorns, let nature be your guide to create a welcoming space.
Let’s Begin Making This Gorgeous Wreath
Covering Your Entire Wire Wreath Base
Step 1: Cover The Wire Base with Burlap
The first step to making this fall nut wreath is buying an 8″ wire wreath base. Generally, these can be found at Michaels stores, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn, or even on Amazon inexpensively.
Other great ideas:
- foam wreath form
- straw wreath form
- wooden wreath base
- natural twig wreath
Meanwhile, this is the perfect time to plug in your hot glue gun and gather many glue sticks
Now for my easy wreath project, I am using an 8″ wire wreath form. Because its wire wrapping the form with burlap ribbon is particularly important. Wrapping the form is an easy step and takes no time.
- 8″ wreath form of your choice
- hot glue gun and hot glue sticks (many glue sticks are necessary)
- burlap ribbon if using a metal wreath form or foam wreath form
- hazelnuts in the shell – grocery store
- metal skewer or a thin heat-resistant tool
- Spanish moss
Perfect Time For The Hot Glue Gun
Step 2: Gluing the Nuts To The DIY Fall Wreath
Begin gluing the hazelnuts around by adding glue to the bottom of the nut. The first row is the most time-consuming the rest of this wreath project is simple and goes rather quickly.
After adding the first row, continue filling the wreath form with the remaining nuts. Incidentally, adding the rest of the pieces to this fall DIY goes very quickly. Incidentally, I used 105 hazelnuts to cover the entire wreath.
A Rustic Natural Touch With Moss
Step 3: Add Moss To Fill In Spaces On The Wreath
Add Spanish moss to the simple wreath craft for a finished look. A small amount of moss is all it takes to fill in the spaces on this easy project. Cut small pieces with scissors, this helps keep the moss from being messy and gives it a cleaner finished look.
The moss also gives this easy wreath even more of a rustic and natural look.
Next, add a tiny amount of hot glue in a section and add Spanish moss. Using a metal skewer or heat-resistant tool to push the moss into the empty spaces also goes quickly
Add Silver To The Beautiful Natural Wreath
Step 4: Add Silver Wax Or Silver Craft Paint To DIY Wreath
Lastly, I add silver gilding wax to the nut tops to add an extra touch of elegance. After adding the silver wax make sure to buff the wax lightly with a lint-free rag.
Another option is dry brushing the tops with silver metallic craft paint. However, if you are using paint let it dry for an hour.
Hanging The Natural Fall Wreath
Now hang this easy nut wreath with a ribbon of your choice. By the way, in the end, I realized I didn’t need to leave a gap for the ribbon. So it goes to show even a blogger makes the wrong assumption.
I added a dark silver satin ribbon to blend with the gilding on the easy hazelnut wreath DIY
Final Thoughts About Fall Wreath
The final result of the nut wreath is truly stunning and adds a festive touch to any space. While it is perfect for fall, I actually choose to keep it in our home throughout the winter months.
Alternatively, this wreath can be transformed into a beautiful centerpiece by placing a battery-operated candle in the center. The warm glow combined with the natural elements creates a captivating ambiance.
If you’re interested in exploring different ways to hang this wreath, I invite you to check out the DIY tutorial. It offers a creative approach to displaying the wreath that you may find intriguing.
As someone who enjoys creating wreaths for multiple seasons, I am always on the lookout for easy and quick projects. If you’re in the mood for one, you might find my simple craft for cleaning and preserving pinecones quite enjoyable.
