How to make your traditional Christmas wreath:

Stage 1

A day or two before you wish to make your festive decoration, gather a selection of your favourite evergreens from your garden or ask a friend if they are happy for you to help yourself from their borders.

You will need: Evergreen foliage such as Ilex (holly), Hedera (ivy), Eucalyptus, Salvia rosmarinus (rosemary), Laurus noblis (bay), Pittosporum, Hebe, Cupressus, Elaeagnus and Buxus (boxwood). Try to choose a selection of greenery with an assortment of shades, shape and form including variegated species and aromas.

Trim the lower leaves away and cut the stems with a sharp knife or secateurs.  Immediately plunge the stems into a deep bucket of water so that the greenery can get a good drink of water before you create your decoration.  This process is called ‘conditioning’. Store the buckets of foliage is a cool, dark place.

Stage 2

Unpack your box and make sure that you have a sharp pair of florist scissors or secateurs to cut your stems to the length you require.  Working on a table, follow our easy steps including in your kit or join one of our online classes.  We have also made a video to help you follow each stage.

Please add a note within your online order.

Option 1: Select the wreath making kit as described in our ‘what’s included’ list.  Please let us know if you would like to include the roll or wreath wrap to maintain the moisture within the moss and make your decoration to last throughout the Christmas holidays.

Option 2: If you prefer to make a 100% recyclable wreath, then do let us know and we will substitute the wreath wrap with additional festive decorations such as dried oranges, cinnamon and fir cones.
