Fall Foliage Wreath

From left to right in the picture I used feathers, dried mushrooms, wheat, birch branches, bittersweet, lotus pods, and pampus grass.

4.  Start placing your larger foliage over the birch branches, securing with the wire.

6.  After a few larger items are placed how you like, take your ribbon and tie on the back and front of the branches.  Hold it up to make sure it stays even and doesn’t fall forward.

 Pampas Grass Wreath


This pampas grass wreath is super easy to make!  If you live in Southern California you can easily pick your own pampus grass wild (but you didn’t hear that from me!)  or its available at your local nursery or flower shop.

1.  Supplies needed:

-Metal Frame

3.  Cluster the pampas grass and secure to the frame, without cutting the wire and leaving it long.

5.  Continue this pattern until you work your way to the first piece.  You may need to adjust the pampas grass on the last cluster to hide any stems.  Cut the wire and secure to the back.

*Tip- to get your pampas grass to dry and not shed as much, spray it with hair spray*

Thanks Meagan for sharing all of your tricks!
