DIY Autumn Wreath

Hello there friends! It’s no secret I love to use natural elements in our seasonal decor, so I thought Id share with you how to make a natural wreath for Autumn.

Fresh flowers have always been my favorite way to change the feel of our home without having to switch up too much decor, so when I spotted these gorgeous Fall blooms at our local market I knew they would be perfect in a wreath!

Supplies 

Fresh Flowers~ A few of my favorites are Hydrangeas, Sunflowers, Eucalyptus, dried lavender, & Sedum “Autumn Joy”

Wreath~ I used a natural twig style wreath from Michael’s

Floral Wire

Garden Shears or Scissors

Wire Cutter~ I used my Shears

I started with Eucalyptus for the base to cover the twig wreath. I simple tucked the stems between the branches and secured it with floral wire.

After I had the Eucalyptus attached, I cut and attached the flowers starting with the largest first.

The Eucalyptus hid the floral wire perfectly.

After the larger flowers where secured I tucked in small roses and dried lavender to give the wreath a fuller look.

I always hang the wreath up to add the last few flowers, it’s easier to make sure you don’t leave any empty spaces.

I used an over the door wreath hook because it ended up being too heavy for the glass wreath holder.

I love how rustic it looks over at the cottage!

Thanks for stopping by!

      1. I actually dried them myself! I bought the flowers from Whole Foods and Eucalyptus from Trader Joe’s. To dry them I just put them in a vase without water for a day or so. They weren’t completely dried when I used attached them but that made it easier to get the look I wanted.

  1. I absolutely love this wreath! I made one from fall leaves once, but it ended up drying too quickly and looking weird. I feel like yours will dry lovely, though. Thank you for sharing!
