Citrus Garden Wreath

Blushing garden roses and sunny oranges remind us of the warm hues of summer. This wreath is crafted with sparse greenery on a natural twig base. And when it hangs from a length of sisal rope, it swings elegantly in any outdoor space.

steps

  1. Strip flower stems of excess leaves, snipping to desired length with cutters.

  2. Secure flowers and greenery to the grapevine base using floral wire. It’s best to start with an “anchor piece”—a large rose or a particularly full and lovely branch—and build out from there. Work odd numbers, not even—if you have two flowers on the wreath it looks like a happy face.

  3. When complete, loop the sisal rope around the wreath and hang. If you’re making your wreath ahead of time, keep in the fridge to help it last longer.
