Hi creative friends! Today we’re using dried cockcombs flowers from my garden to create these sweet mini wreaths with leftover mason jar lids. The perfect crafting combination of nature and upcycling!
Crafting with Cockcomb Flowers
Cockcomb flowers are most often a beautiful deep red color resembling the cock’s comb on a rooster’s head. They are also known as celosia flowers resembling the structure of a brain in some variety. At any rate, they are definitely a unique type of bloom and to our delight, dry beautifully making them a wonderful, natural craft supply!
These are my cockcomb flowers growing in the garden this past Summer. Just look at the abundance of flowers I was able to dry and use for crafting!

How to Make A Mini Wreath Made with Dried Cockcomb Flowers
Here you’ll find the Facebook live video of me making these mini wreaths or if you prefer the photo tutorial, continue reading below.
Start by feeding your wooden beads through the wire.
Wrap your wire around the mason jar rim so that it looks like a hook.
Break apart your flower into little cluster and then glue each one ont to the mason jar rim.
Work your way around the rim until the surface is covered. You’ll find this craft a little messy with the dried cockcomb flowers still shedding the seeds. Be sure to collect the seeds to grow more cockcomb flowers next Summer!
Lastly, glue your bow to the wreath and you’re all done!
Once done, hang the mini wreaths on your wall or a door to enjoy their natural beauty all year long!
