Make a rose hip and hawthorn berry wreath with a foam wreath form, berries, and some pruners. Just cover the form with tightly packed rose hips and hawthorn berries by poking their stems into the foam, and voila!

It’s sweater season again, and even the wreaths are getting cozy! This project uses old sweaters upcycled into pretty felted succulents affixed to a grapevine form, creating a warm welcome at any entrance way.
Oh, and you can make a gorgeous wreath out of real succulents too. This beauty is lovely any time of year, as long as you have warm weather. For those of us with seasons, these succulent wreaths look their best in the fall after a summer of filling in and growing.
Once you make a living succulent wreath, you will probably need to refresh it every now and then to keep it looking its best.
This autumn wreath gets a burst of color from the ornamental gourds, pumpkins, and artichokes that decorate it.

I love the rose hip wreath, but can’t imagine where you live that rose hips are this profuse. At any rate, how did you adhere the hips without burning your fingers! Low melt glue? Tweezers? It must have taken forever. Also, that doesn’t look like a typical foam wreath form. What did you use for a base?
Hi Teddee, I’m in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and my neighbours have a huge rose bush that could have made 5 wreaths this year. There is a link to the foam wreath form above the project image. It is made from floral foam. No glue, just press the stems into the foam. It’s a wonderful product for flower arranging!
I love the hawthorn and rose hip berry wreath. I live in Charleston, SC – where can I purchase these berries? Do you have a link you could provide? Thanks!!
Hi Beth, I’m not sure, could you try a florist or, perhaps, go foraging?
Your top berry wreath is beautiful!
Where do you purchase the base? Does the bottom stay attached?
Thanks in advance for your answer.
Hi Sue, it is a floral foam wreath from a floral supply shop. Yes, the base stays attached. You can see a version of them here http://amzn.to/2ea2QgP
