DIY Buffalo Check Fall Wreath

Happy September! I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! We dropped out daughter off at college and spent the weekend with her. Leaving Sunday night was was probably one of the hardest things I ever had to do. But, I know she will soar and have the time of her life. I’m way behind on comments, so I hope you’ll bear with me while I get caught up! Anyway, I thought I’d kick off the month with a simple fall wreath tutorial. You know I love making a new wreath every season and thought a cute idea would be buffalo check with some orange flowers and white pumpkins.


Straw wreath form (keep the plastic on)

1 yard of buffalo check fabric, cut into 6-inch strips

Floral pins

Pumpkin picks

Eucalyptus stems

Floral stem

Glue gun

Fabric scissors


Cut the fabric into 6-inch strips. I purchased my fabric at Hobby Lobby, and it was about $5.00/yard. You’ll have extra to save for another project. Wrap the fabric strips around the wreath form and adhere in the back with floral pins.

Arrange the eucalyptus leaves along the bottom and side of the wreath form. Adhere with a glue gun. To keep the stems hidden, wrap 2 – 3 additional pieces of fabric over them an secure in back with pins. I secured the flower with a few pins so that I can easily remove it to change the look of this wreath for other seasons. Finally, I added the pumpkin picks. They have a metal stick on the end, so they were easy to insert (and removable if you want to use this wreath for multiple seasons).

That’s it! A buffalo check wreath ready for fall that you can change up from season to season.
