1. Two gauges of wire
2. Wire cutters
3. Variety of dried flowers, herbs, rose hips
4. Optional: ribbons and other embellishments (we chose to keep this wreather all natural with no ribbons)
We started off making a circle out of a thicker wire, and then cut pieces of thinner wire for wrapping.
Long pieces of sage were placed around the circle and tied on with bits of wire.
Then, we added dried flowers, berries and rose hips.

We read books about the harvest, gnomes, and the changing of the seasons as the root children begin their descent into the Earth.
We celebrate Michaelmas and bring out pumpkins in anticipation of Halloween.
