summer to fall sunflower transitional wreath

Bring the warmth of those late summer, early fall evenings to your front door or patio with this transitional sunflower wreath!
Step 1

Overlap gingham ribbon over burlap ribbon and make a multi-loop bow. Your bow should have approximately seven 5½" loops.

TIP: To make a multi-loop bow, you’ll work with the ribbon while it’s still on its spool. Start by measuring out a tail that’s about 9" long, then follow these steps:

   -  Make a loop with about 11" of ribbon. Pinch and twist the ribbon after the first loop and make a second loop that’s the same size on the other side of the pinched area. This will become the center of your bow.
   -  As you work, keep the bow’s center pinched between your finger and thumb. This makes it easier to hold the bow together as you add loops on each side.
   -  Continue making loops on either side of the center, alternating sides, until you have a total of seven loops.
   -  Twist a chenille pipe cleaner around the center to fasten it and use the excess to attach to your wreath.       -  Shape each of the bow’s loops.
   -  Cut the ribbon from its spool but leave another 9" tail.
   -  Keep the bow’s tails long (about 8" - 9") but trim their ends at an angle to avoid any fraying. 
Step 2

Cut apart the sunflower bush and place them around the wreath. 

Step 3

Cut apart the blue snowball bush and use them to fill in around your wreath. 

Step 4

Fill in areas as desired with the filler/greenery mixed bush. 

Step 5

Accent with dried lotus pods as desired. 

Step 6
Once you are happy with the placement of each floral element, glue them all into place.
