Follow the steps below to make your own fall wreath out of silk flowers!

Step by Step Tutorial

First, pick out the pieces of greenery/foliage you want to use. Do some test runs with each piece to make sure it fits the placement you want and has the right bend.

Step 1.  Pick Your Greenery + Trim to Size

Next, start with the base of the greenery and secure it with wire. I like to wrap it around the wreath structure once and twist it around the greenery to secure it.

Step 2: Secure Greenery to Wreath with Wire.

Here I’ve used the large white sunflowers. I take a look at the size of each bloom and decide how big I want them to be. I’ve used the smaller blooms on the bunch because our wreath structure is pretty thin.

Step 3: Add in Focal Flowers: White Sunflowers

After greening the right side of the sunflowers, I move on to the faux burgundy zinnia. I sort of zig-zag my way up the left of the wreath thinning out towards the top.

Step 4:  Add in Secondary Blooms: Burgundy Zinnia
