Last year, the shop was filled with the scent of fresh pine when we created beautiful welcoming wreaths using dark Privet berries and locally sourced pine branches. We had such a fun night!
Look at all those different textures from the mixed evergreens!
We used wire wreath forms, .22 gauge wire, locally sourced mixed evergreens and lovely privet berries.
I love the contrast of the evergreen needles against the woody stems.
Pinecones added even more texture and a woodsy vibe.
I love Privet berries! In the fall they are smooth, dark berries that add lovely color and texture to your floral arrangements. They are perfect for creating a romantic, wintry atmosphere.
Attaching pinecones can easily be done with wire. Cut a small length of wire and wrap it around the pinecone, between its scales. Then twist the wire like a bread tie and use the tail pieces to wrap around your wire frame.
There is nothing better than getting your hands a little dirty and creating something beautiful.
With our hands-on workshops, our goal is to give you the confidence to use these techniques in your own home too!
