I have been doing this for the past few years. It starts out with the same grape ivy wreath that is up all year long. Whatever the season, I cut flowers and add them to my wreath. You might find winter berries, azaleas or anything else that looks good. Try to stick in some with a nice fragrance too. I have even added artificial poinsettia pics. The tubes can be purchased in craft stores and many other stores. Fill the tubes with water and quickly put the stem in the hole in the fitted rubber cap before they begin to wilt.

This year I simply sprinkled a mix of wild flower seeds on the ground in my backyard then added perennial and annual plants . It seems before I knew it, I was looking a at wild bouquet garden! The bonus is no more mowing in that area. What you see here are heirloom and knock out roses, cone flowers, a sunflower, baby's breath and I believe zinnias. I added some more seeds a few days ago so, in a few weeks the garden will have a whole new look. As new flowers bloom, and the old ones die, I simply replace them and get a whole new looking wreath too!

For times when there are no flowers I put in special occasion pics from the dollar tree or whatever I can find. If you don't have a garden, store bought bouquets work just fine!
