Make one DIY Fall Wreath and use it for Thanksgiving and Halloween, too! Just a simple sign switch can give this wreath a different look.
Now, I run around like a mad woman on most days…but I’m a lazy girl at heart. I need my ME time. So I love a good twofer craft. Or threefer in the case of this DIY Fall Wreath.

DIY Fall Wreath – 3 in 1 Holiday Wreath Supplies
Cricut Supplies You’ll Need:
Most items are in my Amazon store, or something similar, but I like working with Cricut Basswood so if you’re wanting any Cricut items, I recommend you purchase directly through Cricut.
- Cricut Maker (no other Cricut Machine can cut through Basswood – Read more about the Cricut Maker).
- Cricut Knife Blade
- Cricut Basswood
- StrongGrip Mat
Craft Supplies You’ll Need:
Now the rest of these can be conveniently found in my Amazon Store – Check out the Fall Wreath Tutorial List!
- Darice 16″ Hoop
- Various Fall colored flowers (I chose a variety for you – you can find these exact flowers at Michaels Stores)
- Gold Spray Paint
- Hot Glue Gun
- Masking Tape
- Black Ribbon
- Mini Black Clothespins
- Mini Pumpkins
- Mini Skulls (optional)
Since this uses the knife blade, I first recommend that you use your USB cord instead of the bluetooth.
Second, check out more details in this Cricut Knife Blade Tutorial.

DIY Fall Wreath – 3 in 1 Holiday Wreath Tutorial
I’m separating this into two sections. First, let’s cut out the wood signs!
- First, upload the SVG Files to Cricut Design Space.
- Resize the files to fit on the mat by clicking on the bottom right corner of the design and dragging the mouse until it’s the right size.
- When your file is ready, click MAKE IT NOW.
- When you get to the Materials Screen, click FIND MATERIAL and enter BASSWOOD in the text box to start a search.
- Select the thicker basswood material.
- Switch to the knife blade, as needed.
- Use a STRONG GRIP Mat and place the basswood material on the mat.
- Apply masking tape around the edge of the basswood to adhere it to the mat. This prevents the material from slipping through multiple cuts.
- Move the white rollers on your Cricut Machine all the way to the right or left. This will keep the rollers from creating dents in your cutting material.
- Send the project to Cricut, then wait.
- And wait.
- And wait.
- Yep, lots of waiting for the knife blade. It needs to cut several times to get through the material, so start on the other part of your project while your waiting!
- IMPORTANT!!!!! Make sure you check to see if the material is cut all the way through before unloading the mat. Each time, I cut it two to three more run throughs before I felt it was safe enough to unload.
- After your signs are done cutting, spray them with gold spray paint, then let dry.
The next part of this DIY Fall Wreath tutorial is pretty simple! Woohoo!
- First, take off some of the flowers from the stems. You may need to use wire cutters.
- Glue the longest flowers (the filler flowers) to the gold hoop.
- Then glue the pumpkins to the hoop. Note: I glue these first because they’re the heaviest and you want to make sure they’re glued directly to the gold hoop.
- Hold the pumpkins in place until glue has dried.
- Start filling in with the other flowers.
- Wrap the ribbon over the top of the wreath and glue in place (video is more clear on this).
- Now clip on the wood signs you made earlier, switch them out as needed!
If you’re using this DIY Fall Wreath for indoor decor, feel free to add balance some skulls on the flowers. I didn’t glue these because I didn’t want to ruin the wreath for the other holidays.
And that’s it! One beautiful DIY Fall Wreath that works for Thanksgiving and Halloween, too!
