  15. Hi Shayna. It’s so nice to meet you through discovering your lovely blog and mad DIY apple wreath making skills! I could not hit the Pin It button fast enough. Good news and great projects travel fast. The wreath is simply done, naturally beautiful and a fall focal point- the best way to decorate in my opinion.

  16. Rachel says:

    Your projects are all so wonderful and creative! I’m looking for red stripe fabrics for our home (for a decent price), Where did you get this red stripe wreath hanger? I also noticed all of your red stripe napkins, and even a pillow. Where did you find your’s? Thank you very much!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very much, Rachel! 😀 I found this red stripe strap at Walmart! Cheap too! My red stripe towels are from a local store! And the pillows are made from reproduction grain sack fabric! 😀
      I hope that helps!

  17. I am making this as soon as possible! This would be an incredible teacher appreciation gift too. An apple wreath for a teacher? How stinking cute would that be? Pinning now!

  18. I love this wreath! Great idea to use the fake apples, I am so stealing this one!

  19. M says:

    Omg… you did make this!!! Love, love, love this beautiful wreath:) Such a talented lady… xo M

  20. Sarah says:

    This is one of the cutest things I have seen on Pinterest in a long time!! Can you tell us where you bought those apples and how much they were? I would love to make one of these!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much! I bought the apples at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and our local craft store. Each store had different sizes. I don’t remember exactly how much I spent on the apples, but it was probably around $30 to $40? There are a lot of apples! Hope that helps! 😀

  21. Kassie says:

    Love this! So pretty!!

  22. Kelly says:

    Did you glue the natural filler in place or just stuff it into the holes? Thanks!

  23. Erin says:

    I cannot wait to make this! Gorgeous! What size foam wreath did you use? Thanks!

  24. Sharon says:

    So pretty, and perfect for fall. I’m sharing!

  25. Melissa says:

    Where did u find your apples for this? I’m finding them online & they are pricey!!! 🙂

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Melissa! I found the apples are three different craft stores, Hobbby Lobby, Michaels, and a small local store. They each carried a different size, which was helpful! I hope that helps!

  26. Katy says:

    I started working at White House Foods about two months ago (they make White House Applesauce and Vinegar products). And…. I just got moved into my very own little office. That has absolutely NOTHING on the walls and no window (better than sharing an office though! – I’m an accountant and need my peace and quiet lol). Sooooo I just might pick the stuff up to make this!!! Perfect!!!

    Hello, I love your wreath!!!! I really want to make one of these but need help finding the apples. My michaels didn’t have them. Do u know the specific brands you used? I was thinking maybe I can order them on Amazon? Can you help!? Thank you !!!!!!


    • Shayna says:

      Thank you so much, Dana! I wish I could be more helpful, but I don’t remember the brand of apples. I just bought a variety of different sizes and made them work. I love Amazon, and that would probably be a great place to look! I hope you find some! 🙂

    Hello, I love your wreath!!!

  37. Eileen Quimby says:

    I just made this wreath and it looks great! I’m at a standstill because I’m unsure how you connected the strap and how did you hang it?

    • Shayna says:

      I’m so happy you love your wreath! For the ribbon, I just simply wrap the ribbon around the top of the wreath, and then use a push pin to hold it together on the back side. Ribbon with wire edging helps to hold the structure a little better, but it works without it as well. To hang it on the chalkboard, I pounded a small nail through the ribbon onto the back of the frame. I hope that makes sense! 🙂

  38. Ivory says:

    Absolutely fabulous!

  39. Jordan says:

    This is really beautiful! I love the apples as an alternative to pumpkins for fall. I shared this as part of a fall wreath diy round-up on my blog- if you’d like to check it out. Thanks so much the inspiration!

  40. Rachelle says:

    Hi Shayna, this wreath is perfect for ushering in September!
    Love it and pinned it 🙂

  41. Eva says:

    Wow looks Awesome! I will definitely do that with my Mom!

  42. Madlene says:

    I love this so much, I wish you would just ship it to me

  43. Jessica Emma says:

    Amazing Tutorial. Very Nice Thanks for it. Always Good Job.

  44. Kristi Meyers says:

    could this be an outdoor wreath? It wouldn’t get wet, but it would be exposed to sun.

  45. Kathy says:

    Do you have an amount of apples it takes?

    • Shayna says:

      I didn’t specifically count them as I added them to the wreath form, but based on a quick count from the picture, I would say around 50-60. It will depend on your wreath form size too.
