White + Gold Holiday Wreath DIY

Pretty White + Gold Holiday Wreath DIY (click through for tutorial) Wreath season is upon us! While there are either fall-themed or Christmas-themed wreaths in every store, I thought it would be a fun challenge to make one wreath that would both be festive for fall and slide easily into holiday decor as well! Adding some leaf and berry elements give the autumn vibe a nod, but the white and gold color scheme is perfect for bringing in that holiday glam. Let’s get started!

Pretty White + Gold Holiday Wreath DIY (click through for tutorial) Supplies:
-white faux flowers
-faux leaves
-faux berry stems
wreath base (any kind if fine)
-white fabric
-white and gold spray paint
-hot glue gun

I got most all my floral items from JOANN, so check your local craft store and see what options they have in the floral department. Choose two or three different types and sizes of flowers so you have a varied look. I like having the bit of black in the middle of the white poppies. A little bit of contrast can be nice as well.

Pretty White + Gold Holiday Wreath DIY (click through for tutorial) Before I started to add my elements onto my wreath, I cut long strips of white felt in 4″ wide sections and wrapped them around the wreath (securing with hot glue). Covering the sides and back with the fabric helps areas that aren’t covered with the flowers to blend into the wreath rather than stick out when finished.

I cut off the flowers as close to the head as I could so they would lay flat on the wreath when placed.

Once the wreath was complete, I tied some thick white yarn around two spots at the top to create a loop to hang the wreath from, and I was done!

I love how the wreath looks on the front door, and the little pops of gold and black in the flowers give the wreath a bit more dimension than a totally white scheme. If you’re looking for a wreath that will take you from your pumpkin spice latte all the way through to an egg nog, this may be the wreath for you! xo. Laura

  • Can’t wait try this one! We just moved in to new home and I was in search of good wreath for my main/front door!

    Perfect timing!


  • This is just so pretty! I love holiday decor that doesn’t scream RED AND GREEN RED AND GREEN! LOL, this is so chic. And against the pink door? Love it! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Oh my goodness – now that is adorable. The white and gold will last you all winter long! If I’m feeling really ambitious, I would make four of these for all four seasons – possibly put some orange leaves on for fall; with pinks and yellows for spring and summer. Just lovely!

  • That wreath is incredibly gorgeous! I live in a cold climate, and have learned that glue gun glue cracks and shatters when cold. I’ve lost a couple of DIY wreaths this way. (Very sad indeed, and proof that I don’t learn lessons quickly.) So I’ve been using E6000 and/or wires with more success. More time consuming, of course, but better in terms of longevity. Just thought some other winter-bound readers might find this useful…

  • Very pretty and it’s nice to see something different than the traditional green and red Christmas stuff. Also I think these are not representing white poppies but white anemones (although they are very similar so maybe I’m wrong).

  • This wreath is so cute!! Also, I am in love with your pink door! 🙂


  • What a beautiful wreath! I love the colours you used!

  • Wow! I was JUST thinking of DIY wreath ideas today and what I could do that was a little different! this is gorgeous! I think I’m going to go with a faux eucalyptus and gold wreath this year.

  • I absolutely love this post! It makes me want to do more DIY projects and not completely fail it! Haha I especially love your pink door, please tell me where you got such an elegant door from! I must have it! Haha

  • I’m making a wreath for our home this festive season, thanks for the style inspiration!


  • LOVE the white and gold. I would never have thought of just spray painting the leaves to whatever color you want, haha. Also looks beautiful on your pink door.

    I’ve used y’all’s fall wreath DIY a couple of times to revamp my front door. 🙂 Last time I used yellow tones, and this year I went with more red/orange flowers, which you can see here if you’d like. 🙂

  • this wreath looks absolutely gorgeous! I am definitely going to be making one for myself!
