In this tutorial I will show you how to make a seasonal wreath. For my example this was an autumn inspired flower wreath with forged flora and foliage. Using sustainable bamboo hoops 20cm and 23cm and NewLife eco-friendly ribbons.

2. A great way to personalise your hoop is to include specially forged seed heads, pine cones or dried grasses. Wrap the green foliage around your hoop, good suggestions include, eucalyptus, ivy and sprigs of holly for Christmas. Beware of using berries if children are around and a wreath maybe in reaching distance.

3. Build your greenery, starting from the outermost edges that you want to cover and work in. Use floral wire to secure branches and larger items. Repeat if you want to builder up a deeper covering.

4. Once the foliage has been built up start adding your fresh or dried flowers. This can be done with the floral wire or florist tape. Pick a flower and wrap the tape around the stem, make sure to high the tape with foliage or more flowers.

5. Keep adding interesting details and ensure you wrap up loose ends to keep the wreath design tidy. It’s lovely if you have collected special seasonal items on a walk as every time you look at your wreath it can make you smile.

6. Add a ribbon ( I choose newline ribbon as it is eco-friendly) and hang your beautiful wreath on a nail or a door frame. Photograph to share with friends and family #DIYFlowerwreath.
