Analogous Natural Wreath

Natural Wreath using Analogous Colours

Time: 19 minutes and 10 seconds Season: All Year round

In this demonstration, our tutor will provide you with an insight into how to construct a natural wreath using a pre made base and seasonal flowers in an analogous colour palette. Circular wreaths for funeral flowers are a traditional and poignant way to honor the memory of a loved one, symbolizing eternal life and the unbroken circle of love and remembrance. These wreaths are often adorned with a variety of flowers, each carrying its own meaning, and arranged in a way that reflects the personality and spirit of the deceased.

Analogous colours are groups of three colours that are next to each other on the colour wheel, sharing a common primary colour. One colour is typically the dominant colour, while the others support and enhance the overall scheme. This combination is often used in design and art to create a harmonious and pleasing visual effect. Using analogous colours can add depth and richness to a design without creating too much contrast.

The use of foam-free tributes, such as natural bases made from sustainable materials like moss or willow, offers significant environmental benefits. They reduce plastic waste, promote biodegradability, and often support local, eco-friendly practices. Additionally, foam-free arrangements allow for greater creativity in design and can be just as sturdy and visually appealing as traditional methods, making them a compassionate choice for both honouring loved ones and caring for the planet. This design has the potential to dry naturally in situ.

If you would like to recreate the design, you will need the following:
