You will need

To create your autumn wreath, you will need a straw base, myrtle wire, flowers and plants of your choice, and ribbon for hanging. Remember, the smaller the wreath and the more flowers, the fuller the result. Therefore, it might be good to choose a size for the straw wreath that is not too small.

Choose flowers

In this wreath, we have chosen to use eucalyptus, thistles, and leaves picked outdoors for their charming and voluminous appearance, which becomes very beautiful when they dry! You can also use: heather, small apples, rose hips, rowan berries, grass, dried ferns, ivy, hops, lamb's ears, statice, seed heads of scabiosa, various types of leaves, cones, maple leaves.
Before you start working with your flowers, you can trim the stem to be about 5 cm long. This makes the flowers easier to work with and prevents them from sticking out beyond the wreath.

How to start making your autumn wreath

Begin by tying the myrtle wire securely to the outer edge of the straw base to anchor the end. Take some flowers and place them against the straw base, then wind the wire around the stems 2–3 times. Next, add new flowers and secure them by winding the wire. Remember to tie the wire tightly so that the flowers stay in place after they dry

Secure the wire

Continue this until the entire wreath is full of flowers! Secure the wire by winding it several times around the wreath. Try to tuck it in between some flowers so that it's not visible, aiming for a professional result, just as if a florist had arranged it!
