I love DIY’s, especially seasonal ones! Making seasonal DIY’s is such a fun way to get into the spirit of the season. My good friend Chrystal and I thought it would be fun to make fall wreaths together. We watched Harry Potter movies and made sugar cookies to enjoy while making our wreaths. Chrystal even treated us to pumpkin spice lattes! It was the perfect fall afternoon spent with a great friend.

I wanted to share our fall wreath DIY with you today. This was a really simple DIY under $15 and it only took us 15 min to make! I hope you enjoy it.
