One of the things I love doing with the change in seasons is swapping out the faux floral wreaths I have in my home and on my front door. I made this one a while back and never got around to blogging about it. Today’s the day! If you saw my wildflower wreath I posted this summer, these instructions are the same!
Although I love bright foliage on the trees, I tend to go for more harvest tones for my wreath materials. I saw these groupings of what look like maybe persimmons and small pomegranates and supplemented it with some faux eucalyptus.
Here’s what you need to create this wreath:
- wire wreath base
- florist wire
- wire cutters
- assorted foliage
STEP ONE | Trim Your Materials
I like to cut the larger groupings down into smaller stems so I can rearrange them into little bouquets before I place them on the base.
STEP TWO | Create Small Bouquets
To ensure the foliage is evenly spread through the wreath, I divide my materials and make little bundles that I will wire on next!
STEP THREE | Affix Bouquets to Wreath
Using your florist wire, start wrapping on the small bouquets, layering subsequent bundles slightly over to cover wire. Continue around entire base until your wreath is complete!
