If you think making a stunning floral wreath is better left to professional florists and home decorating pros, think again. This simple yet surprising floral wreath can be crafted from flowers picked up at the grocery store (Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have great selections) and attaches to a gold macrame ring found at the craft supply store (or ordered from Amazon). We broke the process down to simple steps so the whole project is as easy as “bundle, trim, attach.” Gather your supplies, then follow along with the how-to video—before long you’ll have a stunning asymmetrical wreath that looks anything but amateur.

What You Need

  • Greenery (we used multiple types of eucalyptus)
  • Textural florals (such as thistle and hypericum)
  • Flowers
  • Gold macrame ring (such as this one from Amazon)
  • Floral shears
  • Floral wire
  • Ribbon

Follow These Steps

  1. Cut stems of greenery to about 6 or 7 inches long, then gather them into small bundles and wrap the ends with floral wire. Using floral shears, trim the ends.
  2. Using floral wire, attach greenery bundles to cover one quarter of the macrame ring, overlapping the end of each bundle to hide the stems. Starting at the first bundle you attached, start adding more greenery bundles facing the opposite direction, so that the stems of the center two bundles overlap. Cover another quarter of the ring with greenery.
  3. Make small bundles of textural florals and intersperse them throughout the greenery, attaching each one with floral wire.
  4. Make a bundle of flowers and secure it in the center of the greenery, making sure to cover over the stems so they’re no longer visible. Hang the asymmetrical wreath using a ribbon.
