Make a Beautiful Fall Wreath Using Fresh Flowers

Making a fresh flower wreath is easy, especially when nature provides us with such beautiful colors and blooms. These gorgeous wreaths are perfect for home decor during the fall season, so now's the time to take advantage of your garden's fresh picks or to make a visit to your local farmer's market or flower mart.

Gather your flowers and snip the stem, leaving approximately 5 inches

Wrap vine or natural greenery of your choice around the wreath form.

Continue doing this all around the wreath and secure the ends with floral wire.

To attach the flowers, wrap a piece of floral wire around the stem ensuring you leave excess wire.

Wrap excess wire around the wreath and twist the ends of the wire to secure it.

Continue doing this around the wreath, spacing your flowers accordingly to ensure there is uniformity throughout.

Attach next color flower as desired.

Make groupings of three for more interest and visual symmetry.

Attach a piece of jute twine around the wreath and form a loop to hang.
