Cotton Fall Wreath and Décor for the Entryway
Cotton Fall Wreath
Every morning for the past few weeks I woke up and looked out the window. A few leaves have turned color, but as soon as I look at the weather report — the heat and humidity has yet to leave North Carolina. Will fall ever arrive? I want to wear flannel shirts and boots. I want cooler temperatures so I can stop sweating the minute I step outside. To usher fall into our area, I decided to make a super simple Cotton Fall Wreath. You won’t believe how easy this wreath was to make!

- Real Cotton Wreath Base
- Dried Preserved Fall Leaves (sometimes you can find these at your local florist or grocery store)
- Burlap Ribbon
This wreath was so simple to create, I didn’t take step-by-step photos. Gasp!
Really, it’s so simple, all you have to do is tuck preserved leaves into the cotton wreath. Yup, just tucked, no glue or anything!
Then loop a strip of burlap (or ribbon of your choice) through the top and pin it to the top of your door using a flat thumbtack.
See, wasn’t that super simple?
A red ribbon would also look beautiful with this wreath.
To give my entry a little extra decor, I added a few colorful items.
A little step ladder with a pumpkin and some silk flowers.
The chalkboard painted pail from my fall mantle a few years ago.
A faked blue gourd sits on the bottom step, tempting people to touch it to see if it’s real.
My favorite décor item is this light up grapevine sphere. It adds a beautiful warm glow after dark.

So pretty! I never realized how nice natural cotton like this looks. The only thing I’d worry about with this is the wind blowing all the leaves away, but I suppose it’s not the end of the world if that were to happen. They’re just leaves, after all 🙂
This is beautiful! I need to make one of these for my house!
Thank you Brittany … you inspired me to create my wreath!! Have a blessed day and am sending you cool weather from Canada ok??
Such beautiful colors and I really like the combo of the leaves and cotton!
Thanks for the compliment Bonita!
So festively fall, very pretty. I’ve gotta check out that grapevine sphere, I Love this! Thanks so much!
Thanks Colleen. I wish I had been able to find that exact grapevine ball with lights. It’s great for Christmas too!
Now this is a great looking Fall wreath! I will definitely share this with my friends and family because I know they will be excited too. Thank you!
Thanks. Glad you like it.
I love it! Since no one sees my decor because my apartment is surrounded by a forest the boyfriend said I could decorate his house for the seasons. Yay! I’m excited! I LOVE that wreath. I’m on a wreath kick lately, his mom made a pretty awesome one she told me how to make too. Happy Friday!
Leslie, thanks. Have fun decorating your boyfriend’s house ;-). I bet it looks fabulous!
