- Arrange the fall leaves around the wreath evenly spaced. Place them at about a 45-degree angle to the face of the wreath. Use the floral pins to help secure it in place. Some stronger stems can be inserted directly into the straw. Use glue to help secure it in place.
- Arrange the berry branches around the wreath the same way, filling in between the leaves. This is a nice contrasting color and adds dimension and texture.
- Arrange the Queen Anne’s Lace evenly spaced around the middle of the wreath alternating the colors. This is a nice texture and defines the center of the wreath.
- Insert the wheat stems evenly spaced around the wreath at a 45-degree angle. This is a nice contrasting color to add depth and guide your eye around the wreath.
- Insert the corn husks evenly spaced around the wreath between the wheat stems. This adds to the bleached color of the wreath.
- Insert the pod stems evenly spaced around the wreath. This is another fun texture that pulls your eye around the wreath.
- Insert the grass stems evenly spaced around the outside edge of the wreath. This is an excellent filler to soften the edge of the wreath.
