Early fall calls for a gorgeous sunflower wreath. I am not ready for the muted colors of autumn just yet, however next week the kids go back to school and I am slowly transitioning into my fall decor.
I wanted to share the easiest way to make a wreath and bow.

I thought I was finished with the wreath.

Then I added a little more greenery and some yellow seed flowers and now I love it.
DIY Early Fall Sunflower Wreath
This sunflower wreath is perfect for late summer and early fall decorating. I start by gathering my sunflowers and white basket and then I select my ribbons. If you have been following my blog then you know I love to use more than one ribbon for a bow. Less is more does not apply here.
First, using wire cutters I cut my floral picks apart and place them in a pile on my work surface. Then I choose my feature flowers and I hold them together making them into a bouquet. Next, I start adding greenery and so on until I like the look. Then I use a pipe cleaner and tie the bouquet together at the bottom.
To attach the bouquet to the basket I use the same pipe cleaner I used to tie the floral together.
Easy Ribbon Loop Bow
In this video you can easily see how to make this style of bow:
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
I like to use three different ribbons for this bow. I cut two of each ribbon at 27″ and then folded over about 6.5″ to form the loop.
Place the loop ribbons in three stacks so they are easy to use and cut a piece of wire 18″ long and set it aside.
With the loop’s short end facing me I start gathering and pinching about 1/2″ from the short end.
Then I do the same thing with the rest of the ribbon loops.
Then using the wire I cut earlier I tie the ribbons together to form the bow.
Using the ribbon wire I attach the bow to the bouquet.
The embroidery hoop ornament was made by my daughter, Olivia using her Cricut Maker. It took only minutes to whip up and it adds that something unique.
I used a smaller black and white check ribbon to attach the fall embroidery hoop decoration.
The last thing I do is fluff the bow and cut the ribbon streamer tails.
This wreath can be used as an indoor wreath on a wall, mantel, shelf, etc. or as a wreath outside on your door.
