Dried Flower Wreath

Dried flowers are having a huge moment right now. To create this stunning wreath, nestle dried branches, flowers and grass into the wreath form and be sure they are secure by weaving them into the wreath base. Start with larger items and add smaller, thinner items on top. Then, wire the dried fruit on last with floral wire by threading through the holes and wrapping it around the wreath form (you may need hot glue if the dried fruit you are using has no holes).
