Fall Hanging Arrangement

Try this same idea in a larger container to hang on a door or over a mantel. Don't miss our how-to video for more tips.

Check out your local craft store for the dried materials needed to make this woodsy, autumnal arrangement. Look for a nice variety of color and shape such as a few spiky stems, airy filler, berries, taller grasses, and larger items like the round balls and golden flowers we used.

Cut any long stems to a workable length and cut apart any multiple stems you're using. Arrange the bouquet in your hands before cutting it to length and placing it in a tin container. Finish by adding more color or shape where needed, then hang on a door handle to greet guests this fall.

Supplies

  • Small, flat tin bucket with handle
  • Various dried fall flowers or realistic-looking artificial stems, berries, or fall floral picks
  • Alternatives: Set your arrangement into a small vase to display next to a kitchen sink. Or make a larger version to hang on a door or over a mantel.

Instructions

  1. Fill your container with dried flowers, grasses, wheat, or assorted greens, using the tallest stems in the back and the shortest in the front to build the arrangement.
  2. Simply set the flowers into the container. Or secure them into a block of floral foam or into sand.
  3. Allow heavier pods to hang over the edge of container.
  4. Garnish with a few sprigs of colorful fall berries or bittersweet.
  5. Note: If desired, create the arrangement in your hand and wire the stems together. Cut stems to length and insert into the container.
