DIY Upcycled Fall Wreaths

Dressing up your entryway for fall is one of the most fun ways to welcome autumn. With wheat, hay, leaves and warm colors at your disposal, you have tons of options to make your own fall wreath. But instead of running out to the craft store and buying brand new supplies, why not take some items you already have around you house and transforming them into a gorgeous fall wreath?

Take a look at some of our favorite upcycled autumn wreaths, and get inspired to create some gorgeous autumn decor without breaking the bank. 


  • Upcycled Egg Cartons

    Burlap is always on our list of autumn décor. This wreath from Premeditated Leftovers uses burlap and egg cartons to create a floral wreath, without using flowers. You can also jazz it up a bit by spray painting it, or just adding some glitter!

  • Upcycled Wool Sweaters

    Who doesn't have some old sweaters lying around they haven't gotten around to donating yet? This wreath we found on flickr uses old sweater patches to bring a cozy, and warm feel to the front door. Welcome in guests from the chilly weather by making your own.

  • Upcycled Aluminum Cans

    Instead of throwing your soda cans in the recycle bin, why not make them into a piece of art like Lovely Pet Collections. Just follow their DIY, and you’ll be the best recycler on your block.

  • Upcycled Bicycle Wheel

    If you have any old bikes in your garage, or can score a great deal at a local flea market, grab a wheel and some spray paint. Add some some autumn foliage to recreate this vintage wreath we found on Typennington.

  • Upcycled Gourds

    Pumpkins or gourds really signify the fall, so why not add them to your wreath like Coconut Head’s Survival Guide did to hers? You can paint them with little faces, or just in a pretty pattern, and they will bring your wreath well into the chilly season ahead.

  • Upcycled Burlap

    We’ve been going a bit burlap crazy! But with all the crafts, we have plenty left over for one more project. This wreath from Picklee might just be the project we’ve been looking for!

  • Upcycled Fabric

    For this gorgeous wreath, you just need some old fabric to make into faux flowers, like Hazel and Company did. Bonus points if you happen to have fabric scraps in warm fall colors.

  • Upcycled Paper Bag

    We all have old paper bags lying around, so put them to good use with some spray paint, like we did with our autumn paper bag wreath. Just carefully stencil out the leaves, and paint them to your liking. We used metallics, but you can use any fall color palette you like!

  • Upcycled Rake

    Ok, we love this wreath. Mostly because it's super simple, made from an old rake (are we the only ones that have an old dusty rake in your garage?). With a few leaves and added foliage from around your yard, it’s the perfect wreath for the autumn months ahead!

  • Upcycled Toilet Paper Rolls

    Save your used toilet paper and paper towel rolls for this chic wreath. Just fold them, cut and add some berries like Bonnin Designs.

  • Upcycled Old Frame

    Wreath’s don’t always have to be floral, or even round. Our Back-to-School Wreath is great for a change of decor for the season. Plus we all have old frames laying around the house that we can repurpose!

  • Upcycled Twigs and Acorns

    During the fall there are always plenty of twigs and acorns laying around. Do as Amaranth and Kale did and make them into a piece of art to hang on your front door. You can even spray paint it to match!

  • Upcycled Yarn

    Knitter or not, crafters like us always have some yarn around (you never know what you’ll need it for). With this DIY from Write it Down we need it for a cute new wreath to welcome in our guests.

  • Upcycled Leaves

    Even using some of the leave your rake up in the backyard can make a cute hanger for your door. Give our DIY a try, and feel free to add your own twists!

  • Upcycled Pre-Used Wreath

    Make a spooky wreath just in time for Halloween like we did! This one uses an old wreath, and some cob webs to bring some spirit to your house.
