As autumn graces our doorsteps with its mellow charm, there's an undeniable desire to mirror its beauty in our homes. Follow along as we capture the free-spirited elegance of this season by crafting a fall harvest wreath.
- Gold decorative wreath form
- An assortment of dried flowers, including pampas grass, lavender, eucalyptus, etc.
- Floral wire or twine
1. Start by laying out your dried flowers and group them by type, size, and color. This way, you can visualize the layout and make your crafting process smoother.
2. Using your floral wire or twine, start attaching the more substantial or fuller dried flowers to the gold wreath form. Ensure they are securely attached, with the stems pointing in one direction, either clockwise or counter-clockwise, based on your preference.
3. Once your base layer is set, it's time to add the accent flowers. These could be your brighter-colored or uniquely textured dried flowers. Intersperse them evenly, ensuring a balanced look. Your wreath doesn't need to be perfect. Just have fun with the process! Let the flowers flow naturally, protruding at different angles and lengths. This gives the wreath an organic, free-flowing look.
4. Once you're satisfied with your arrangement, take a step back and see if there are any gaps or areas that need a filler, such as a sprig of lavender or a tuft of pampas grass.
5. Find a special spot for your wreath – it could be your front door, above the fireplace, or any space that needs an autumnal uplift. The gleaming gold form combined with the dried flowers will instantly infuse a boho charm into your space. Enjoy your new decor and the splendors of the season by uncorking a bottle of the J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Chardonnay - cheers!
