It’s finally September! Although it’s still as hot as can be in my neck of the woods, I think now is a perfectly reasonable time to start decorating for fall! At the end of the month, I’m hosting a DIY Fall Wreath craft class for all of my friends. Everyone is coming over for a delicious dinner (I’m thinking homemade chili) and afterward we’ll learn how to make our own fall wreaths! I have an elaborate flower garden (complete with gorgeous fall-blooming foliage) and I plan on providing cut flowers for my guests to work with for their fall wreaths. While our fall wreaths will only be used for one season, I think real flowers provide an incredible touch that faux flowers just can’t come close to. If you plan ahead, you can make a wreath out of fresh flowers for fall, spring, and summer!
Just in case I’ve inspired you to have your own fall wreaths craft night, keep these stunning flowers in mind for your designs! Most of them are easy to grow, and maintain, too!
Chrysanthemums (also known as Garden Mums) are known for their bright, decorative blooms that captivate come fall. These fall flowers come in a variety of colors like red, white, pink, orange, or peach. Though their blooms are typically gigantic you can grow a “mini” variety that only reaches a few inches in diameter in containers. No fall wreath of mine is complete without a Chrysanthemum or two!
