Foraged Botanicals DIY Fall Wreath 

Summer flora always gets the limelight.  Sure, there are oodles of lovely foliage and flowers to see at the height of summer, but my favorite time of year for a spectacular floral display is fall. I’m not referring only to the brilliant display of colorful leaves. I love seeing the warm colors of fall blooming flowers, and the dried seed pods left over from spent blooms.

One of my favorite ways to display fall’s beauty it to make a foraged wreath.


• 12 inch straw wreath
• Floral snips/pruners
• U-pins
• Foraged leaves, flowers, and seed heads

For this project, I highly recommend a straw wreath form. They are lightweight, inexpensive, and reusable. U-pins make wreath making a cinch — no wiring required. After you try making a wreath with these two elements, you will be making your own fresh, botanical wreath for every season.
