Projects for Autumn Flowers:


Now that autumn is in full swing, let's discuss what blossoms are best for bouquets and arrangements. Fall is traditionally associated with reds, yellows, and oranges. Sunflowers are thus a popular pick for autumn bouquets

Some of the prettiest flowers bloom naturally in autumn, and don’t fit into the red-orange-yellow color scheme. These include the Aster, Chinese Bellflower, and Chrysanthemums. Other autumn flowers include Canna, Symphyotrichum, and Callistephus.

Flower Wreaths:

One fun and simple idea is to take flowers of your choice and incorporate them into an Autumnal wreath. You can form the base for the wreath using two wire coat hangers. Stretch them out to form a circle. You will need long branches, which you can then wrap around the hangers. It is best to secure them to the hangers with some floral wire, which you should be able to find at your nearest craft store. After you have completely covered the hangers with branches, you can use your flowers to add a beautiful splash of color. If you like, you can also weave in berries and pinecones. Flower wreaths make great gifts, and look lovely on front doors and entrances.

Dried Flowers and Potpourri:

Another fun fall project is to dry out flowers to preserve them and form unique bouquets. There are different methods for drying flowers; some choose to simply hang bouquets upside down in dry dark spaces, while others opt to use silica gel to expedite the process. You could also use a flower press (found in most craft stores). After you have dried out your flowers, you can use all the odds and ends in creating potpourri. Aside from flowers and leaves, you will also want to purchase essential oils and spice and herbal fixative. With these simple ingredients, you’ll be set to create your potpourri! Some of the best flowers to use for potpourri, which have the strongest fragrances, are roses, chamomile, jasmine, carnations, and heather.

Pumpkin Flower Vases

Something that has become more common (and which is also a lot of fun to make) are pumpkin contains. Firstly, you will need to carve out a round hole on top of the pumpkin of your choice. Next, you can glue foam to the sides of the pumpkin, so the flowers will be cushioned and pressed firmly in place. Using Eucalyptus branches, berry branches, and the flowers of your choice (zinnias are a popular favorite) you can form the arrangement to your liking. Feel free to use glue to secure branches in place. These arrangements are both fun and easy to make, and if you have kids they can enjoy helping you out with this one, too!
