A horseshoe-shape is a welcome change for a traditional fall wreath. Start with a foam wreath form and cut away about 1/5 of the ring. Wrap with seam-binding ribbon to cover foam. Using hot glue, attach fresh or preserved salal leaves (commonly called lemon leaves). Glue a cluster of nuts in the center, then add dried wheat, preserved fern fronds, and fresh or silk berries.
Go for faux leaves and berries to create a long-last wreath, or opt for dried finds if you want a more natural look. Simply cover a foam wreath with Spanish moss. Stick in leaves as you build it, alternating the colors for variety (green pins help keep the leaves in place). Pepperberries add a pretty red blush to the center.
Making the most of fall's abundance is as easy as tucking leaves into a purchased wreath of wheat. Simply slip the stems of the leaves into the spaces between the wheat heads. Use the leaves sparingly so their individual shapes pop against the neutral background. When the leaves fade, remove them, and save the wreath for next year.
With its unique shape and wispy wheat, this easy-to-make fall wreath is sure to wow your guests. Cut a round foam base into a U shape. Starting at the bottom of the U, wire long shafts of wheat to the base. Fill out the wreath by gluing on shorter shafts. A cluster of seed heads glued to the center hides the wired ends.
Create this colorful wreath with bittersweet vines and Chinese lantern stems. (Strip the leaves before assembling.) Twist the vines into a circle, then wrap the circle around a wire wreath form. Tuck in Chinese lanterns for a dramatic pop of color. Secure the stems and any loose pods with dots of hot glue.
This wreath combines dried sweet Annie, dried lavender, purple statice, globe amaranth, and large green kale leaves for a decoration that smells as good as it looks. Experiment with different plants to find the colors and aromas you love most.
Display this pretty wreath through the entire holiday season. Start with a twig wreath, then use hot glue to adhere acorns and fall leaves to the surface. See the next slide to learn how to make the acorns stand out.
