Looking for a simple craft that will add a pop of autumn cheer to your home? Try this easy tutorial from ABeautifulMess.com to make your own autumn floral wreath.

What you need:

  • 12" foam wreath form
  • Glue gun
  • Glue sticks
  • 3 bunches of silk flowers in warm tones
  • 6 feet of 2 inch- wide ribbon in a matching color


  1. Pull all the blooms from their stems and cut off the little plastic stem piece on the back of each flower.
  2. Tightly wrap your wreath form with ribbon. Use hot glue to adhere the ends to the foam.
  3. Use a generous amount of hot glue to adhere each flower. The more you use now, the less likely you will have to re-glue flowers later!
  4. I like to adhere my blooms in bunches (starting with the largest flowers) and then fill in the gaps with more blooms. This makes it easy to space out larger blooms.
  5. Last, fill in any gaps with smaller blooms. That's it!
