Here’s what you’ll need:
- Oasis naturebase biofoam ring
- Bloom & Wild flowers
- Autumn foliage
- Gold spray paint
- Floral scissors for cutting
- Twine or ribbon to hang
Step 1: Gather your flowers and foliage
Gather up some foliage in the form of autumn leaves and branches. You can use some gold spray paint on any leaves that are a little too green, it’ll give this wreath an autumnal magic touch.
Step 2: Cover your wreath ring with foliage
Soak your biofoam oasis in water until it is full and heavy. Then, start your wreath with the foliage first. In a circular direction, push the stems of your branches into your oasis ring. Keep going until you can’t see any brown foam.
Step 3: Add your flowers
Trim the flowers at an angle so they’re about 3 inches long and push them directly into your oasis. It’s best you don’t move them once you’ve pushed them in as it’ll damage your oasis, so try to plan how it will look beforehand. For example, do you want roses the whole way round or at opposite ends? Laura-Ann decided on berries and decorative foliage all around and then roses & freesias at the top and bottom corners.
Step 4: Display it!
If you’re planning on hanging the wreath, make sure it’s an even circular shape, then hang it in place with some twine. You could easily move this from your ceremony to your reception to make the most of it, or make several and use them as rustic table centres. If preparing them ahead of time, just remember to give your wreath/s a light water every other day.
