- Using your 18” grapevine, add your floral wire wreath hanger up top to prepare. Mount on your workspace for good visual creation.
- Determine a transition point on your grapevine when you will begin to adjust your floral and greenery. One angle will move up, over and around your wreath and then down and around.
- Cut your Green and Red-Brown Maple Hanging Bush into some sections with wire cutters from your main bundle. Work your greenery into your grapevine. Using the angle you place it in to hold it secure, along with some hot glue. Use some faux moss to cover your hot glue if needed.
- Let’s deconstruct and prep our Dahlia Hydrangea Rose Bush. Push up those flowers up to the top and trim from the bundle. Place and sort your florals, so it is easy to work with. This bush was our inspiration piece.
- Working with orange florals first, grab the dahlias. Dip your stems in hot glue. Chunk them in your greenery already placed.
- Next, let’s add our blue florals in around your greenery. Have them complement your orange dahlias. Follow up with your yellow floral bundles. It will look scarce at first, but be patient.
- To fill our grapevine, grab your Burgundy Mixed Autumn Bush. Trim from the main bundle and work sections into your grapevine. Use hot glue to place, popping in and around your florals. Remember to keep your angles going up and down to keep the flow of your grapevine. You will use 2 of these bushes to fill in.
- With your Orange Sweet Daisy Stem, cut a small section to work with. Hot glue ends and place them popping out adding height and dimension. This adds a fun burst of orange to our wreath. Play with the stems of the daisies so they pop up and outward from the grapevine. Use moss to hide any glue showing. I used 3 of these stems.
- Add in more greenery to any holes you might find as you work in your florals. Step back and observe your wreath. Help build your depth and dimension by adding height where needed, or different colors.
- Grab your Blueberry Stem, and trim from the main bundle. Work in some sections popping from behind your bright orange dahlias. Play with placement and have fun with it.
- This wreath is coming along so nicely. To add more of a “dry” look to it, let’s add our Poppy Pods Bush. Place them tucked in amongst your florals adding a bit more fun to your wreath. These will be long, creating more dimension and height. Fluff your florals, stems, etc. to make your wreath look fabulous. I used 2 of these bushes.
- Add greenery where needed as you work.
- Lastly, we will add our Fall Boll Pod Stem. Position your twig stems so they pop out, keeping the flow of your wreath. These stems just complete the look. I love it so much.
- If you want to add a bow to this wreath at your transition point, feel free to do so. I personally like it without.
- Play with your florals so they are popping where they need to, standing out, and looking fabulous.
