Step 1

Soak a floral foam wreath in water. For longer-lasting wreaths, add floral preservative to the water.

Step 2

Cut blooms with 2" to 3" stems from large mum plants. Strip leaves from stems. One 12" wreath will need approximately 100-125 blossoms.

Step 3

Mum Wreath Detail

Poke the mum stems into the floral foam and overlap petals for fullness. Use flowers from different-colored mums for a variegated design.

Step 4

Mist the wreath with water daily, and it will stay fresh for several days.

Place an LED candle in the middle and let it be the star on a tabletop!
