How to make a fall split wood bead wreath
Making this wood bead floral wreath is so easy, here’s the easy steps that should only take you half hour (or less!)
First step: Hot glue 16 beads onto your wreath form.
I find it easier to put the glue directly on the wreath form, it just takes a few minutes to dry. Note: Don’t hang it for at least an hour or until the glue completely sets.
Step two: Take floral stems apart.
Step three: Tightly wrap leaves around wreath form first then layer with larger elements.
Step four: Tuck smaller elements into the wreath and secure with floral wire. Trim with wire snips.
Add your largest elements last and wrap with floral wire, trim with snips and ta-da! All done.
Simply place the command strip on the wreath form to hang (optional) or place wreath over a hook. However you display it, guaranteed you’ll love it! ??

Yes, we’re wreath addicts and have one for spring as well!
This is just stunning! And I love that it can easily be modified for each season. I just got my floors resurfaced and there was some extra stain left, so I decided to put that on my beads. I love how it creates a cohesive look between my front door and the entryway. Thanks for the idea!
We’d love to see that, it sounds lovely!
Love this! I made it today. I could only find 1 inch wood balls but it turned out beautiful! Thanks so much for the pin! I wish it would let me show you the pic of my masterpiece!
Oh yay, I’ve seen others make it in 1″ and it’s darling! Thanks for taking the time to tell us– you can add a picture to the pin if you’d like! 🙂 Thanks again, happy fall!
Can you use foam wreath forms instead of wood? I’ve checked both Joann’s and Michael’s online and they don’t have the wooden forms.
Hi Julie! As long as you can get it to lay flat, go for it 🙂
This is so adorable and I can’t wait to make it! Are there any local craft stores that I can purchase the split wood balls from? I’m having a craft night this week and not sure if they would arrive in time from etsy. Thanks!!
So sorry for the pokey reply, I know Hobby Lobby sells them and I’m sure JoAnn/Michaels do too, hopefully they’re on sale for you! Check the unfinished wood area 🙂 Happy crafting!
OMG the wreath is so pretty. I have the half balls and have not made one yet. You should see my downstairs storage room. I have my wreaths up on wall space. My husband is now tired of wreaths. LOL
When I tried the link to get the 16 inch wooden wreath form, it would not come up. Where did you purchase the wooden wreath form?
Hi Mary! It’s from Michaels, Ashland brand. Here’s the direct link: https://rstyle.me/+C2jDGABtVMnNZxHcZcxcMQ 🙂
Sooo cute! I made your spring one and now I want this fall one!! But the links for the florals look totally different from the ones you have…where did you find yours?
Hi Karen! Yay! I got all of mine at JoAnn, they just don’t have links on their website- boo. All of them are from the Bloom Room line 🙂
This is sooo adorable!! I want to coordinate a DIY wreath workshop social distanced in my backyard with neighbors now! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
That sounds so fun Mindy!!! Would love to see how they turn out 🙂 Happy crafting!
