How To Make A Christmas Wreath + Oaten’s Workshop Wrap Up

I’m back from my tripping about to rural NSW, we had so much fun making floral wreaths for Christmas. While I’m there I always spend some time with the local ladies needing a helping hand with the decorating process in their homes. I love chatting with them about their decorating dilemmas and helping them solve problems that they’ve had with their layouts or furniture for months (sometimes years!). I’ll be back again next year and hopefully I will be able to do some before and after reveals to show you how their properties have progressed.

Usually the workshops are strictly business and focus on interior decorating but this time we wanted to do something fun for Christmas and making wreaths ended up being really therapeutic!! Here’s a peek at one of the wreaths we made in the class.

If you’re tempted to try your hand at wreath making I promise it’s not difficult to do! All you need is an afternoon to play + dodder vine (available at your local florist) that you twist together to make the wreath and then some floral wire to wire all the flowers in place. Easy! (hint: Australian natives are easier to work with as they’ll last longer).
