Autumn wreath - this is how you tie your own door wreath

When the season changes and it starts to get darker outside, we like to decorate. A perfect decoration for autumn is to make your own door wreath to bring in a cozy atmosphere. Tie your own autumn wreath to hang on your door. Be creative and fill it with everything that belongs to autumn, such as heather, rowan berries, leaves, cones and small apples. Only the imagination sets limits.

How do you tie a simple autumn wreath?

You need

To create your autumn wreath, you need a straw frame, myrtle wire, flowers and plants to taste and ribbon to hang with. Remember, the smaller the wreath and the more flowers, the bouncier the result. Therefore, it can be good to choose a size of the straw wreath that is not too small.

A top a wooden table, placed outdoors, are different types of leaves and thistles.

Choose flowers

In this wreath, we have chosen to use eucalyptus, thistles and leaves picked outside because they give a fancy and bushy look and become very nice when they dry! You can also use: heather, small apples, rosehips, rowan berries, grass, dried ferns, ivy, deer paws, lamb's ears, limonium, scabiosa seedlings, various types of leaves, cones, maple leaves.
Before you start working with your flowers, you can cut the stem so that it is about 5 cm long. Then the flowers are easier to work with and do not stick out outside the wreath.

This is how you start tying your autumn wreath

Start by lashing the myrtle wire to the far end of the straw frame to secure the end. Take some flowers and lay them against the stem of the straw and wrap 2-3 turns around the stems with the wire. Then you add new flowers and wrap. Remember to fasten the wire tightly so the flowers remain after they dry!

Fasten the wire

Do this until the whole wreath is full of flowers! Secure the wire by lashing it several times around the wreath. Try prying it in between some flowers so it's not visible, for a professional result, just like if a florist tied it!
