When it comes to fall decor, I like to keep it simple. Life is too busy these days to change the decorations each month, so when I find something that can take us through a few holidays I’m stoked. Case in point: this DIY fall pear wreath goes falls into the category of fall decor but also would look great through Thanksgiving and Christmas. A double (triple!) duty wreath that I can move around on a whim? Hooray for easy fall decorations!

Typically I find inspiration while browsing the aisles of the craft store (hint: go to ALL THE AISLES, even the ones you don’t typically visit, because you never know what you’re going to find!) On a recent trip, I ended up in the floral department and started crushing on the cutest mini-pears.  I’d fallen in love with the DIY apple wreath Shayna shared over at Wood Grain Cottage, and these pears seemed like the perfect faux fruit to create the same look with a twist.

Here’s what I used: a foam wreath, burlap ribbon, mini-pears (3 bags, actually), and a hot glue gun with lots of glue.

First, wrap the burlap ribbon around the wreath form.

Then, start hot gluing those pears! It was like a puzzle, when they didn’t fit one way I tried another. It’s almost therapeutic to turn the pears until you find the perfect spot. Once you do, you’ll know, and glue it! Be sure to place them in different directions to mix things up a bit.

 The last step is a hanging it with a wide ribbon. I used what I had on hand, but there’s lots of great burlap ribbon in stores right now.

Here’s my wreath hanging trick for cabinet doors: use a Command Hook on the back of the cabinet and flip it upside down!

I love it on the front of the cabinet, but I’m sure it will move around through the holidays. Heck, I might stick a partridge in it and call it a Christmas carol.

If you like this idea, I bet you’ll love this Dollar Store Pumpkin & Burlap wreath too.

Pumpkins, pears, and apples– oh my! What fruit will YOU be adding to a wreath this year? And yes, I made this with faux lemons about 10 years ago but ripped them off and reused them. Might need to have the lemon wreath make a comeback. 😉

  1. What a adorable idea! How long did you find this lasted until the pears started to spoil? I wonder if soaking them in something would help with longevity. Either way, I love this simple, creative addition to the holiday décor. Thanks for sharing.

    1. HI Katie! I used faux pears from Michaels. No spoilabe and I can use it year to year.

  2. I love your pear wreath. Hope Michael’s will have these again. What size wreath did you use? I would like to make for my front door.
