Make your own Wreath!


Make a Festive Wreath guys!

Who wants to come and learn how to make their very own Christmas door wreath? I have a very clever Mumma Bear, Chrissie, (aka ‘Mologs’…don’t ask!!!) who does exactly that! (See gorgeous picture). My mum has been professionally making wreaths for over 15 years now. She spends her year foraging for this very thing! Pine cones, conkers, acorns, beechnuts! All sorts of natural loveliness!

Mum uses all-natural material to make the most part of the wreaths combined with ribbons, silk flowers, faux berries, Christmassy glitz etc. You guys will each have a 10 inch wire ring, which you will moss, attach backing with foliage, then, the exciting part, embellish them with all sorts of festive goodness of your choosing! Ribbons, dried fruit, nuts etc. Virtually ANYTHING goes, so if you have something you would like to wire in to the wreath, by all means bring it along! Everything will be provided to make your wreaths however. Mum will also have glitzy spray paints in all sorts of colours to add a bit of sparkle should you choose to. The wreath, when finished, will measure at approximately 14 inches. They will last for well over a month on your door as they are moss-backed. All you need to do is water them every now-and-again.

Chrissie will bring along examples of ready-made wreaths for you to see and to inspire you! You will receive constructive help and ideas throughout the workshop. All materials and tools are provided in the workshop price so just bring yourself and loads of enthusiasm and creative flair! Plus, light festive refreshments! Mince pies, cake & biscuity treats to keep you fuelled! I will even get a pot of mulled wine and the Christmas music on the go! What’s there not to like?! ‘Tis the season after all!
