In September the weather changes, but so does nature. The arrival of autumn can now be felt everywhere. In the mornings and evenings it is now cooler, the temperatures usually drop below 15 degrees, in northern Germany they are already heated. Nature puts on her colorful garb. The color palette in the garden and in the forest is colorful and beautiful. Here you can find warm tones, from sun yellow and orange to red tones and all shades of brown.

What are the advantages of an autumn wreath made of yarn as a great decoration idea?
Making a beautiful fall wreath out of yarn is not a complicated DIY project. First of all, it’s fun for young and old to create something so beautiful. And secondly, your children can also take part and develop their manual skills and creative thinking. In addition, this project impresses us with the variety of colors used. You are free to choose those shades that you consider to be symbols of autumn. Here we mean warm red tones, fresh green nuances and accents in orange, yellow or chocolate brown. Everything is allowed, so that everyone can combine these colors according to their own mood. Often you take a yarn in a rather neutral shade. Then strong colors were chosen for the actual wreath decoration, that is, for the leaves and flowers, which in most cases are made from colored felt. This is how you skillfully pair bright and neutral colors to achieve a strong visual effect.
For this DIY project, you have to choose those shades that are typical of autumn.
… and skilfully combine them with each other.
But an autumn wreath in neutral tones can also look very stylish.
In addition, an autumn wreath made of yarn is very versatile. It is primarily intended for the front door to symbolically invite autumn into the house. Its decorative function has a very positive effect on homeowners and their guests and we appreciate that in Germany. A stylish autumn wreath made of yarn can also decorate your interior just as well if you hang it up correctly. For example, in the hallway, on the banister or in the kitchen by the window, such an autumnal decoration looks simply wonderful. Our picture examples are excellent proof that such a wreath does not only belong on the front door.

How can you make an autumn wreath from yarn yourself?

Extra tip: The additional decoration of the autumn wreath is entirely your own personal affair. We can only recommend that you give the wreath an individual touch by decorating it nicely and making it an eye-catcher. In addition to felted leaves and flowers in traditional autumn colors, you can also use sunflowers, acorns, pine cones, corn on the cob, artificial fruit and vegetables, and even small animal figures. But don’t overdo it with the decoration! The beauty lies in the simple things, right?
