The flo­ral foam ring used here is 36cm (14½in) in di­am­e­ter, but foam rings are avail­able in a num­ber of dif­fer­ent sizes, so don’t feel limited to us­ing the same size as us.

This piece used around 40 flower stems and 20 pieces of fo­liage, but there are no rules dic­tat­ing what flow­ers to use or how many, this is just a guide to get you started. How­ever, to keep it in­ter­est­ing, we rec­om­mend in­clud­ing a range of dif­fer­ent shapes, tex­tures and lengths.

Use a water sprayer ev­ery few days to keep your flow­ers fresh. Gen­tly stick the noz­zle be­tween the flow­ers to mist the foam.

If you are hang­ing this wreath, the ex­cess water will start to drain out of the ring, so sus­pend it over a basin for a few min­utes be­fore plac­ing it on a wall or door to pre­vent a pud­dle!

This is one of those flo­ral projects that you can keep on adding to, so stand back and have a look ev­ery so of­ten to make sure the wreath is not los­ing its shape.
