How to Make a Fall Basket Wreath

I love decorating my front door for each season of the year, and in the past, I have always decorated with traditional wreaths.  But this year, I wanted to do something a little different.  I wanted to create a basket wreath.

So I headed to my local Joann store to get some supplies, and created two fall wreath baskets for my front doors.  Today, I am going to show you how I made them…

How to Make a Basket Wreath

These beautiful fall basket wreaths were easier to make than I thought they would be.  Here are the steps I took:

Step 1:

Hot glue a piece of styrofoam to the bottom of your basket.



Step 2:

Add florals of your choice.

I used some Heather & Onion Grass and Orange Lantern sprays.

Step 3:  

Make a bow.

I love me some gingham, so I grabbed a roll of this gray and white gingham ribbon at Joann as soon as I saw it!  It was a little wider than I wanted, so I trimmed it a little to make it thinner.

Next, I took some of the ribbon and created a loop, and cut off the extra tail.

I took the extra “tail” ribbon and wrapped it around the middle of my “loop” piece and tied a knot in the back.



Lastly, I trimmed the ends of the ribbons with my scissors and hot glued the ribbon to the front of my basket.


Step 4:

Attached small metal 3m hooks to your door.

Step 5: 

Simply slide the back of the basket over the hooks to attach it to the door.  Voila!


I LOVE the way my wreath baskets turned out!  The orange lanterns make such a statement on my brown wood doors.


Now I have a bright and cheerful front porch to welcome friends and family this fall.

You may notice that my bows look a little different, because after I added them to my baskets, I decided to create “fake folds” in the bow to give it a little more dimension.

I simply tucked in the sides of my bows and held the new fold together with a safety pin in the back. How to Make a Basket Wreath

To cozy up my front porch even more, I added a cute blanket and pillow that I found at Joann as well.

I love the orange and cream colors of the blanket and the velvety cover of the “home” pillow.  

The temperatures are slowly starting to fall here in Kentucky, which is making me even more ready for fall to arrive.  I will definitely be sitting on my beautiful fall front porch, cozying up with my pillow and blanket, and sipping on a pumpkin spice latte while watching the kids play outside.  Doesn’t that sound amazing?!!

Have you ever made a basket wreath?

Let me know if you give this one a try.  :)

    1. Hi Claire! Thank you! I found those baskets at Joann’s,but they were the only two. I couldn’t find them online, but I’m sure you could find something similar. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So cute! Hoping that the fall decor will trick our (still) 100+ degree temps into thinking it’s time for cooler weather! Off to Joann!

  2. These are beautiful! We also have a dark door, and I think I’ll have to give this a try. It’s still hot here, but perhaps cooler temps will travel this way. Thanks!

  3. I love this basket wreath. I made one in a tin basket that hangs on the wall of my bathroom all year round. (not a fall wreath).Your porch looks so cozy..

  4. I’ve wanted something different for my front door. Think I will give this a try. Think I have everything I need already. Thanks for the idea.
