An autumn wreath with fresh and dried flowers

For your door, wall or anywhere else

Is there anything cosier than a lavish autumnal wreath on the front door? Not if you ask us. This one is awesome thanks to the use of the right materials and the combination of fresh and dried flowers. This seasonal work of art would not be out of place on your wall or above your bed. You could even consider giving the smallest room a major upgrade with this calming piece of beauty. And you can make this wreath yourself!

The ultimate autumn palette

Autumn stands for warmth and cosiness. This is reflected in the flower colours chosen. From warm orange, fresh green to deep red, the autumn palette is complete. This autumn, we love using dried flowers in combination with fresh flowers. In this wreath, we have used physalis, scabiosa, serruria, hypericum, dahlia, chrysanthemum, aster, verge and tree branches. 

A playful combination

Combining dried flowers with real flowers creates a playful feel. The dried flowers provide the base, and you can finish it off with real flowers. Have the fresh flowers come to the end of their life? Then remove them from the wreath and replace them with new flowers. Some species are even suitable for drying
