Keweenaw Garden Club: Wreath and Swag Workshop

Posted on

On November 16 at 6:30pm, Learn to make your own beautiful holiday creations from natural materials in the woods and gardens around you. Erin Froese, floral designer and gardener, will offer an online workshop demonstrating how to create beautiful wreaths and swags for your holiday decorating. Learn how to create interesting mixes of greenery, twigs, and branches with berries.

For the workshop, have all your supplies on hand and table space available. We will all work from our homes and socially create via Zoom! Erin will pre-record some techniques, which will be demonstrated in the workshop. Following the event, participants will receive access to the pre-recordings. You can rewatch them as you try to master some of the techniques for making bows, attaching the greenery, and creating a hook to hang the wreath or swag from.

You will need to gather these supplies for your use:
3-5 different types of evergreens, branches, and berries (red osier dogwood, holly, juniper berries, balsam fir, cedar, red or white pine, etc…)
One 12-14” grapevine wreath
Paddle of 22 gauge wire
A roll with at least 3 yards of 1-2.5 “ wide ribbon to create a bow for your wreath or swag. Ribbon with a wire edge is best to help form your bow into a beautiful shape.
Pinecones of different shapes or sizes
Submit RSVP form ( https://forms.gle/zyRQFq6z3zhsuxhi9) to receive the event Zoom link.
