Festive Fall Wreath Ideas from La Fleur Design

Fall wreath ideas to put a ring on your love for the season.

Natalie Bernhisel-Robinson

“People get wreath fever in the fall,” jests Natalie Bernhisel-Robinson, owner of Le Fleur Design and author of Living Wreaths (Gibbs Smith $20). And why not? “There’s no better time to forage for materials,” she explains. For this hoop-shaped wreath, the floral designer turned to her yard and nearby hillsides to harvest a wild array of grasses, crabapples, sedum, yarrow, branches, dried hydrangea, sunflower pods, rosemary and sage brush that she paired with black agonis and preserved oak leaves to create a welcoming ring of high-texture and mellow hues. The elements flow in a counterclockwise direction and create shots of eye-catching color. “This keeps the eye moving around the design,” Bernhisel-Robinson says. Her caveat? “Don’t choose anything that’s fragile or that falls apart easily. You don’t want a wreath to shed every time the door swings.”  For the date of Bernhisel-Robinson’s next wreath-making class, follow her on Instagram, @lafleursaltlake
