Luxurious Autumn wreath

We all love to decorate our homes with Christmas wreaths - but why wait until Christmas? With so many gorgeous colours and textures available at this time of year it's a shame not to make the most of what this wonderful season has to offer.

Making your own wreath is easy and fun - just gather together a few essentials and then get creative! Follow our step-by-step guide and you'll have a stunning Autumn wreath in no time.

You'll need:

  • Wire frame

  • Sphagnum Moss (available from garden centres)

  • Binding wire

  • Wreath wrap

  • Stub wires

  • Mossing pins (a.k.a German pins)

  • Scissors/secateurs

  • Assorted foliage/berries

  • Decorative pieces - acorns, mini pumpkins, feathers, ribbons - the choice is yours!!

1. Attach the reel wire to your frame and wrap around the whole frame once to provide a support for the moss. Keep the reel of wire attached to the frame

2. Make sure your moss is moist and then gently pull it apart to remove any twigs (or bugs!). Pack a handful of moss tightly onto the frame in a sausage shape and wire the moss to the frame. Continue doing this until the whole frame is covered, ensuring the moss is nice and firm and then go over once again with the wire, anchoring the ends into the moss. Trim any loose ends so the moss ring is nice and neat
