DIY Fall Gnome Wreath

DIY Fall Gnome Wreath

Fall is in the air, and what better way to adorn your home with the spirit of the season than with our DIY Gnome Wreath? Crafted to capture the essence of autumn, this wreath blends natural textures, fall florals, and a touch of gnome-inspired whimsy. Join us in this creative journey as we show you how to transform a simple wreath into a charming symbol of fall. From peeling off the silver accents to attaching the gnome's signature hat, we'll walk you through each step to create a wreath that's sure to be a welcoming sight for all your guests.

What you need

Dollar Tree Witch Hat (it has black tinsel on it and the word boo)

6 bushels of fall leaves


6 Zip Ties

Hot Glue Gun/ glue sticks

Ping Pong Ball

Fall Berry Picks


Orange mum flower 



Start by peeling off the silver Boo and any other sections of the hat that are silver (those could be seen through the burlap but the black won’t be)

Next, flip the wreath over and using the scissors cut off the extra ends of the hat, you won’t need those and then will make the hat stick out to the sides

Take the bushels of the fall flowers and lay them out how you like the flowers to be seen. I then grouped them into sections of 2 and zip-tied them to the backside of the hat. Make sure that the leaves are below the hat and kind of layered so it looks more like a beard. Trim the end of the zip tie.

Next lay your piece of burlap underneath the hat. I trimmed around it so I wouldn’t have a lot of excess and would have some for future projects. Add hot glue to the plastic sections of the backside of the wreath and fold the burlap over it. Pressing down firmly so it attaches (make sure to wear those little hot glue gun protectors from the dollar tree as I ended up burning a few fingertips forgetting that the burlap has holes in it)

Repeat this until the entire hat is covered. I folded over the end so that I could make a lip so I could add the orange mum and one of the berry picks.

Add a dab of hot glue to the backside of the ping pong ball and press firmly onto the leaves.
