Making your own Holiday Wreath is fun, festive, and rewarding. Since we opened in 2010, our wreath making classes have been one of our most popular classes. Now, we have created a way for you to make your own wreath, on your own time with family, friends, co-workers.
Order online for pick-up at our Minneapolis or Edina store. (PLEASE NOTE: Please pre-order at least a day in advance as we do not have all of these materials on hand on a daily basis at our Edina location.)
Start with our Wreath Supply Kit and add greens, berries, pine cones, and ribbons. We recommend starting with a minimum of 2 bunches of greenery of your choosing. You can add berries, pine cones and ribbons however you would like.
1. Start with first layer of greens. This will be either fir, cedar, or white pine. Use short wires to attach greens to wire frame by bending wires into a ‘hairpin’ shape. Twist wire over greens around the frame to secure. Continue adding greens in the same direction until the wreath is full and wire frame is covered. (pictured here: white pine)
2. Add 2nd layer of decorative greens over the first layer. This will be your gold tip cedar, juniper, or carolina sapphire. This layer spruces up the wreath and adds depth and texture. (pictured here: white pine and carolina sapphire)
3. The third layer will be more sparse than the first 2 layers by adding touches of greens throughout. This will be seeded eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus, magnolia, or bay leaf. (pictured here: magnolia)
4. Finish with adding your decorative pieces to your wreath. This will be your pine cones, pepper berry, talloberry, privet berry, ilex, cotton, eucalyptus pods. Attach your bow and ribbon to hang! (pictured here: pinecones and striped ribbon)
