10 Fall Flower Projects

flower_projects_for_fall
As of this past Monday, it is officially fall up here in the northern hemisphere. For many of us, this means donning sweaters and scarves, stocking up on hearty foods, taking up long-neglected craft projects, and waiting in line for pumpkin-flavored anything. Oh, and gourds. You can’t forget about the gourds. Indeed, autumn is, for the most part, pretty dern awesome. What with all of the leaf-peeping, pumpkin-patching and apple-picking to be done, it’s a shame that the season can’t last forever. If savoring the season for as long as possible is part of your September-December agenda, we’ve got you covered! From stunning autumnal wreaths to spooky arrangements for your Halloween parties, these are our favorite flower projects for bringing the magic of fall home. Check out all of them after the jump! —Max

    poppies and posies are so pretty!

  3. How incredibly gorgeous for autumn. Although I would usually stick to my favored colors like pink, would love to infuse orange and red more into my floral arrangements for home these days. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Lovely decoration. Even that these flowers are already dead, they look marvelous.

    Fun projects! But please, on #1, if you use bittersweet in an arrangement, keep it inside your house. Bittersweet is an invasive exotic plant, introduced from Asia, and this vine smothers plants and can even kill trees. People like the bright berries, and often use them in wreaths, but if they are outside then birds can still eat the berries and spread the seed. Using them inside, though, actually helps because then there are less berries for the birds to eat!
