  1. 1

    Dip a foam florist horseshoe into and out of water. This will enable fresh flowers to stay fresh for a longer period of time. If the form is soaked too long, it will drip when hung on the wall.

  2. 2

    Cut the stems off of fresh flowers, leaving about 4 inches of stem remaining.

  3. 3

    Starting at one end, insert a flower into the foam horseshoe.

  4. 4

    Add another flower as before, inserting it close to the first flower. Make sure the flowers are packed tightly enough the completely cover the foam base.

  5. 5

    Repeat this pattern until you reach the top of the horseshoe.

  6. 6

    Insert a flower into the foam on the other end of the horseshoe.

  7. 7

    Continue adding flowers until you reach the top again. By this point the wreath will be full of flowers.

  8. 8

    Twist florist wire around the top of the wreath to hang it up.
