How to Make a Dried Floral Fall Wreath

Evoke the harvest at home with a wreath using dried greenery like ruscus leaves, poppy pods, bunny tail, and pampas grass. The fillable metal base can be changed with the seasons.

It's easy to make a wreath in any style. This fillable metal base—combining elements of the Himmeli-inspired geometric shape in a brass finish—can be decorated with fresh flowers, foraged evergreen branches, or small ornaments. We like both Terrain's Fillable Metal Wreath Base and Modlode's Geometric Wreath. Hang it on the front door and swap out elements to change as the seasons do. For fall, we used dried flowers and greenery, including bunnytails.

What You'll Need


  • Fillable wreath base
  • Pruning shears
  • Floral tape
  • Assorted dried flowers, such as bunny tail and pampas grass, ruscus leaves, and poppy pods
  • Cloth-wrapped wire


  1. Using pruning shears, cut the stems of all varieties down to size.

  2. Use cloth-wrapped wire to tie pampas and bunny tail grass into a single bundle, binding the ends with white floral tape. Fill the wreath base with these bundles around the circumference, working from the inner circle outward.

  3. Add individual stems of smaller varieties like ruscus leaves and miniature poppy pods, tucking them into the wreath. Use as many as needed to fill any gaps and achieve the desired look.
