Bump up your curb appeal with some fresh greenery and a little bit of creativity. You can make your own front door wreath using dried flowers that you’ve hand-selected to match your style. Cassie Hartman, founder of Ozark Mtn. Flower Truck, says it’s actually quite easy to find the right flowers and dry them yourself to make your own homemade fall wreath.
Hartman, who grew up in Springfield and is a working nurse, started the flower truck in July 2017 after realizing she wanted to bring something different to Springfield’s floral scene. She had lived in Spain for a semester during college and loved the look of the fresh flower stands on the streets. But when she came back to Springfield, starting her own flower stand seemed like a pipe dream. However, she decided to take the leap when she found Stella, her 1970 Volkswagen Truck. She has now fixed Stella up and takes her all over Springfield, carting around fresh flowers for sale. Buying these beautiful fresh flowers is your first step to making a locally sourced wreath for your front door.
