Me and my friend went to a wreath making workshop this year. We did it in November in order to get the most out of our wreaths.
These were made with real fresh foliage and they were really fun to make.
The workshop was only with three others so five of us in total which gave it a nice relaxed atmosphere.
The lady who tan the workshop was lovely and very helpful and attentive.
We even got chocolate cake and cups of tea whilst we were creating our wreaths, always a winner when cakes involved.
You started by preparing your wreaths ring, then you added your large foliage as you desired. We had lots of different ones to choose from (I would love to tell you what they were but I’m no gardener haha) I did recognize the holly of course!
As extras we had pine cones, holly berries, cinnamon sticks, white berries, dried orange and lime slices as well as little Robin’s.
There was also a choice of ribbon to finish off your wreath. I chose the red and gold to match my theme. I love the more traditional Christmas colours.
I thought it was going to be really hard and fiddly, some bits were fiddly but over all I really enjoyed giving it a go and it was nice to get creative and just chill out.
I can be quite creative sometimes and I love making things, it’s one of those hobbies I don’t do enough!! So it was great to make time for it and have a lovely evening with my friend.
Here are some pictures:
