Welcome, friends! We are so excited for our Fall edition of the Seasons of Simplicity Tour, hosted by my friend Krista from The Happy Housie! A group of talented bloggers are combining our efforts to share our DIY projects for the Fall with all of you and we hope you find some fun things that you’d like to make as well this season!
Fall decor doesn’t have to mean oranges and browns. I like to find ways to add touches of glam and pink in any season. I decided I wanted to make some candle wreaths for Fall. All of the candle wreaths I’ve seen are only done in oranges and browns. That won’t go well in my home and it just isn’t me.
I started by running to Michael’s and grabbing some stem wire, pretty fall stems, and then I already had floral wire and green floral tape. I really liked the light ivory leaves with a taupe/brown/mauve splash to them. I grabbed blush fall rose stems also. The berries shown, well….I bought them “just in case” but I changed my mind and left them out.
Then, because I wanted a little more “glam”, they had some sparkly rose gold leaf stems in a small Christmas section of Michaels that they’d just put out so I grabbed those too.
So here’s what you do…..
Simple steps to make your own DIY Fall Glam Candle Wreaths
1. Bend the stem wire in a circle around the candle and barely overlap the ends to see where you need to cut it. Don’t make it so small that it hugs the candle. You want some room in between because you’ll add to the stem wire with other stems and wire and floral tape.
2. I started with the leaves and cutting them off individually from the stem and then using 2″ pieces of floral wire to attach them around the stem wire ring that you created in Step 1.
3. Do the same thing the sparkly leaves, attaching them in between the whiter leaves.
4. Take the green floral tape and wrap it around the wires all the way around.
5. Add 3 larger roses (or whatever floral stem you’ve chosen). I even added the smaller buds in between some of the larger roses.
6. Repeat Steps 2 and 3.
Voila! You’re done! That’s seriously ALL you do! Easy, right?! It just takes a little time to figure out how you want it arranged but other than that, it was simple to just attach all the stems on the ring. I don’t think it took me more than 15 minutes per candle wreath.
One candle and candle wreath was lovely on my buffet.
And it looked so cute with this darling little velvet pumpkin.
But of course I had to make 2 more wreaths for my trio of candlesticks.
I’m already imagining how these will look on my dining table during dinner so…..
I threw them on there to see how they’d look under that crystal chandelier.
Yep. I like it. It’ll be pretty during our fall dinners. What do you think?
And they were so easy!
