Last Friday’s wreath class was the first workshop I’ve held in our new kitchen/dining room combo and it worked a treat. So much more space to play with.
Everybody began with this:
And ended up with this:
It’s a fabulous wreath design, so simple yet so effective. I have to thank Yorkshire demonstrator Monica Gale for the idea as it’s a project I made on her retreat in October. I’ve since seen a couple of similar wreaths for sale in shops, so the frosted look is very clearly on trend.
It’s a pretty simple recipe: as well as your wreath (of course), some frosted berries (eBay), 40+ flowers (which I’d kindly and painstakingly already cut out for my class-goers), around 15 pine cones of various sizes, and some silver glimmer paper. Oh and a hot glue gun is essential.
Now I’m wishing I’d bought extra wreaths as I fancy having a go at a red and gold version. After all, I do have quite a few pine cones left over…
