Tobacco basket decor is popping up everywhere I look, and I love the farmhouse feel of this trend. Today, I’m sharing how to turn a tobacco basket into a pretty tobacco basket wreath for fall. This project can be made from start to finish in about half an hour. Let me show you how it’s done!

Fall Floral Tobacco Basket Wreath Supplies
- Tobacco basket
- Faux fall flowers
- Artificial pumpkins, pinecones, and other seasonal elements
- Hot glue
- Unfinished wood banner
- FolkArt Home Decor Chalk Paint (Adirondack White and Seriously Gray)
- Paint brushes
- Vinyl letter stickers
Note: I purchased my tobacco basket and floral elements at Michaels.
To begin, trim away the stem of each of the flowers with scissors.
Arrange the flowers as desired at the bottom right-hand corner of the tobacco basket, and affix them in place with hot glue. Nestle the pumpkins, pinecones and other seasonal elements within the flowers, and secure them with hot glue, as well.
Wrap ribbon in and out around the entire perimeter of the basket. Secure the beginning and end of the ribbon to the back of the basket with hot glue. Make a simple ribbon bow, and use hot glue to attach it to the top left corner of the basket.
Apply white paint to the surface of each of the wood garland pieces. Set each piece aside to dry completely.
Affix vinyl letters in your desired message to the front of the painted garland pieces. Paint over the stickers with the gray paint, applying as many coats as needed for event coverage. Allow the paint to dry completely before removing the stickers. String the garland onto a piece of twine or ribbon, and secure it to the wreath by tying the ends around the outside edge of the basket.
Your beautiful tobacco basket fall wreath is complete!
This same tobacco basket wreath idea would be perfect for any season by using different flowers and other decorative elements!

Love the arrangement in the tobacco basket. I made my own basket a couple yrs ago and have been hanging a yarn wreath in the center of it. I like your arrangement and think I’ll change mine up. Did you use a styrofoam block in the corner with the flowers? I love the way you wound the ribbon around the basket and made a bow at the top. Very lovely.
