How to Make a Plate Wreath for Your Front Door!

How to Make a Plate Wreath for Your Front Door! Add some festive flair to your front door with this easy-to-follow tutorial!

Fall is here, and that means it’s time to start thinking about sprucing up your home for the changing season. One of the easiest ways to do that is by hanging a wreath on your front door.

But store-bought wreaths can be expensive, and you probably want something a little more unique anyway. Amiright? Plus, I love being able to use what I have before heading out to purchase something else. Are you with me on this?

 I was browsing Pinterest the other day, and I saw the most beautiful plate wreath made out of teacup saucers. (my friend Suzanne @suzannezinggstyle is where I first saw this idea – I love her account on Instagram , be sure to check her out ) I knew I had to make one for myself, being a tea lover. And since I already had a grapevine wreath on hand, I decided to make a plate wreath using tea cup saucers and the grapevine wreath for my front door.

How to Make a Wreath Step by Step?

Today I’m going to show you how to make one for yourself. This project is simple, relatively inexpensive, and best of all, you can customize it however you like!

Rather than buy a new grapevine wreath, I repurposed the one I had used early this summer by removing the red & white flowers from the wreath.

After being on the porch all summer, the greenery was looking a bit sad, so I added new greenery.

What You’ll Need:

  • A grapevine wreath (you can find these at most craft stores)
    – 8-10 tea cup saucers (my favorite place to source teacups and saucers are thrift shops or estate sales )
  • wire plate hangers
  • floral wire
  • wire cutters
  • faux greenery
  • hot glue gun + glue sticks
    – optional: ribbon, fake leaves or flowers, etc. for decoration

Once I had the flowers removed, I added fresh greenery to the top of the grapevine wreath to give it a brighter look.

Next, it’s time to get an idea of where you would like the saucer plates to be placed. Move the saucers around the wreath until you are happy with the patterns and how it looks.

My plate wreath is starting to take shape!

Using the floral wire, I adhered the plates to the back of the wreath, making sure the plates were secured well.
