DIY Sunflower Wreath for Fall

Learn how to make a DIY sunflower wreath for fall.

I don’t know about you, but I’m clinging to summer with everything I have. It’s September, but it’s still in the 90s here, so sunflowers feel more appropriate than orange leaves and pumpkins.

Most of our sunflowers have been stolen by squirrels but they’re still in bloom. Did you know that squirrels steal the entire flower? Our squirrels seem to be much smarter than average.

Next year, I plan on planting them everywhere because I love them so much. It will be a squirrel buffet, I guess, but it will be gorgeous until they figure that out!

Until then, a modern wreath with fake sunflowers is giving me all the fall feels. Is there anything better than fall crafting (even though I love summer with all my heart)?

Tips for Making a Modern Fall Wreath

Faux florals have wires in the stems, so you can make the flowers face in the direction you want.

Some floral sprigs will need more wire than others. For instance, the sunflowers had much thicker stems, so they needed more wire to secure them to the metal wreath ring.

If you have trouble securing the flowers with wire, you can add a bit of hot glue to keep the flowers in place.

You can use any light gauge of wire. I just used what I had on hand. Keep in mind that smaller numbers mean the wire is thicker and will be harder to bend.

You can make your wreath symmetrical or asymmetrical by adding more to one side or displaying it on an angle.
