Steps for Making a DIY Farmhouse Wreath for Fall
- First, make a swag for your wreath using picks including leaves, greenery, feathers, a pumpkin and more. Gather everything in your hand leaving space in the middle to secure it together with zip ties. Cover the zip ties with your bow to conceal it. You should have stems facing out both directions. Note: Make sure to fluff your pieces before attaching so that everything isn’t flat.
- Next, make your bow following my Funky Bow instructions or the video below. For this wreath I used 13 inch loops.
- Attach your bow to the center of the swag using florist wire or a zip tie. After attaching the swag, make sure it’s tight and doesn’t move. If it does move around a bit, add one or two more zip ties or wire.
- Move and bend the swag around so that it is more of a crescent shape around the wreath base versus just being straight up and down. Make sure the various flowers and greenery are not laying flat and also take this time to fluff your ribbon loops and move them where you want them.
- For a beautiful finished look, take pieces of greenery and hot glue them into the bow loops and anywhere else around the bow or in the swag that has a gap that needs to be filled. This helps to blend the bow into the arrangement.
- Lastly, check your ribbon tails. If they’re too long, you can trim them or roll them to curl them slightly.
