As we head into Autumn (we are SO ready), our homes become a haven of comfort & warmth. We while away our slow Sundays tucked under teddy fleece blankets, scent our living rooms with spiced candles, retreat to the warmth of the kitchen to bake cinnamon sugar biscuits and decorate bookshelves with pumpkins, embracing the true spirit of hygge season.
One of the most stand-out seasonal touches we can delight in at this time of year is an Autumn wreath.
There are infinite ways to inject a little bit of fall magic into your living space and reflect nature’s changing tones and textures, but perhaps one of the most stand-out seasonal touches we can delight in at this time of year is an Autumn wreath. Much like its festive counterpart, it’s made to adorn doors, walls, dining tables and cosy fireplaces, offering a warm welcome to all.
Here, we’ve gone for an earthy & rustic dried flower display but if you want to layer in some colour, you can add in some burnished bronze foliage, flax, moss, maple leaves, pine cones, dried hydrangeas, acorns, frosted berries and whatever else evokes those good autumnal vibes.
They also happen to be super easy to make, so even if you’re not the crafty and creative type, you’ll have no problem get to grips with one of these homemade dried floral wreaths.
What you’ll need:
- Dried flowers of varying heights & textures – foraged or sourced online / from your local florist
- Glue gun
- Grapevine / rattan wreath
Let’s walk you through the step-by-step!
- Start by lightly wrapping your the dried flowers you’d like as your ‘base’ around your rattan wreath
- Use your glue gun to find them in place
- Start layering on different textures and colours glueing as you go
- Add on any larger pieces like pine cones
- Try to make sure everything you add is symmetrical so the wreath feels balanced
- Use some gardening twine glued to the back of your wreath so you can hang it to a door
