1. What you need

To create this beautiful, rustic autumn wreath you will need straw, green myrtle wire, decorative leaves, autumn plants and a ribbon/string for hanging.

Remember that the smaller the wreath base and the more twigs of plants, the fuller the wreath will be. Therefore, it is good to choose a large enough size for the wreath base.

2. What to use?

We chose eucalyptus! To make this autumn garland, we decided to use: two types of eucalyptus twigs (eucalyptus populus and eucalyptus populus with berry) blue thistle and leaves collected in the park, which will add a fanciful, rustic and natural autumn character to the wreath.

You can also use: heather, small apples, rosehips, rowan berries, dried ferns, ivy, limonium (sea lavender), scabiosa, various types of leaves, cones or maple leaves.

3. How to make a wreath?

Before you start making the wreath, we recommend that you trim the stems of the plants to about 5 cm long. Then they are easier to work with and do not protrude beyond the wreath.

Pick the first twigs and place them on the base of the garland. Wrap the myrtle wire 2-3 times around the stems.

Continue adding new twigs and decorations. Be sure to firmly fix them with wire so that they are all securely tied and safe from falling out.

4. Finishing touch

When the entire wreath is full of flowers and twigs, it's time for the last wire wrapping. Try to lift the first twigs when tying up the last ones, so that the wire is not visible.
