Make your own large Door Wreath for Christmas
This price includes your materials comprising a new large oasis 16" (which can be renewed with fresh oasis year after year) There may be time to make a second wreath (these make lovely presents for friends at Xmas time). If required, this second wreath will cost £6 to £8. We will show you how to add new oasis to an old frame and this will mean you will know how to re use your oasis ring for following years.
Although we have some greenery here, we will ask each person coming the day before or early that morning to gather a large (trolley bag size) full of mixed greenery to bring along for the course. We can then share out what we have and create the most stunning large wreaths and also have great fun making them.
Below is a list of examples that we may have some supplies of - however not enough for all so we suggest you bring your own to decorate and add the final touches to the foliage if you wish - remember you will be hoping these look fresh for at least 2-3 weeks.
Holly with Berries attached - Seed heads
Feathers - Baubles - Bows
Dried Fruit i.e. oranges, lemons, limes (these can be dried on a very low heat in the oven)
Dried chilli peppers
Fir cones - sprayed white silver or gold if you like
(spray if you have )
Anything else you think may look good!
We will show you how to wire up and attach any decorations that you choose and we hope you will never consider buying a made up door wreath again.
