Make this Pretty in Pink Fall Wreath and give your autumn decor a breath of fresh air while shifting away from those traditional fall colors.
I know you must be thinking “Huh? Pink for Fall?” But I promise you it looks so, so pretty when it’s all put together. This Pink Fall Wreath is part of a whole design that incorporates warm shades of pinks, burgundies, golds, and creams with just a touch of beige here and there. The pinks are deeper in tone and are really more like lighter shades of burgundy as opposed to bubblegum or Barbie pink, so they work.
I’m not knocking the traditional oranges, yellows, reds, and browns of the Fall decor you’re used to seeing, but after having those colors in my home decor for over a decade, I’m completely over them. And don’t think I didn’t notice this surge in mustard yellow decor popularity just as I was donating all of mine, lol. I just don’t care to see it in my house for a while. I need bright, soft, and pretty.
Now let’s see how I put this wreath together!

Pink Fall Wreath Steps
1: I bought my cream-colored wreath from Michaels, but you can easily spray paint a plain one in just a few minutes as I did for my Lavender & White Spring Wreath. If you do get yours from Michael’s, pay attention to the shape. Mine was literally the last one on the shelf and that’s the only reason I bought one more oval than round.
2: Trim the floral bunches into individual stems with the wire cutters.
I call them functional wire cutters in the materials list above because I’m so tired of the ones sold in the floral departments of the craft stores. Those things can barely cut butter. The Fiskars utility scissors you see above do a little bit better, but they’re still not ideal for florals. And I don’t care if the wire cutters aren’t pink or green or girly, I need them to actually be able to cut through those thick floral stems without making my hand cramp. Okay, rant over, lol.
I like to bend out the stems first to better see where I want to cut them.
3: Starting with the larger flowers, poke them into the wreath at a perpendicular angle or sideways as opposed to just straight through to the back. The larger flowers will serve as the central focal point of the wreath.
I usually bend the stems near the head of the flowers to make sure the face out on the wreath. Some flowers just look better pointing straight up, though.
4: Take a few of the smaller flowers from the bunch and add them around the larger flowers. If you don’t have many of the smaller flowers, you can add some of the extra greenery you trimmed off.
5: Add some of the white berries behind those florals, working your way up the sides of the wreath, on each side of the flowers. These berries will be accenting the larger florals. I’ve linked to a couple of different kinds of white berries in the materials list, but the ones I use here are actually from Dollar Tree. They don’t always carry them, though.
6: Now add any other smaller flowers in behind the white berries on each side, moving up both sides of the wreath. All of the florals combined should take up at least one half to two-thirds of the entire wreath circle. You could also add some pretty greenery here instead like the lamb’s ear or eucalyptus I used for my Wood Bead Floral Wreath.
That’s it! This Pretty in Pink Fall Wreath is very simple to make and can be assembled with whichever florals appeal to your taste. I have definitely used this technique before and will likely use it again. I think grapevine wreaths are the perfect wreath forms and just look so much more natural, even when they’re painted.
One of the bonuses to using grapevine wreaths is you don’t really need to attach a hanger onto the back. You can just easily hang it from one of the grapevine stems, easy peasy. This also allows you the flexibility to rotate how you hang your wreath. I know for me, sometimes I’ll make a wreath thinking the focus will be on the side, but it ends up looking better on the bottom or top, or even the other side.
So what do you think about using pink in your Fall decor? Let me know down in the comments if you think pink is refreshing or think pink stinks for Autumn.
This Pink Fall Wreath looks so pretty and elegant next to all of my other pink, cream, and gold Autumn decor and I can’t wait to show you all of that together very soon!
I’ve completed a few projects to go with my Pretty in Pink Fall decor, starting with this Welcome Fall Cricut Shadow Box,
And continuing with my Tissue Paper Decoupage Pumpkin that uses the chunkiest and sparkliest pink glitter I’ve ever seen, lol!
