How to make your own Flower Wreath


Last weekend I went to Engaged, a wedding event. Part of the day I spent making a flower wreath. The workshop was led by my dear blog friend Holly Marder. I’m so happy I went because as you all know by now, I love flowers. Not a weekend goes by that I don’t buy a fresh bouquet. I’ve been wanting to do a flower arrangement and wreath making workshop for years now. I’m extremely proud of the result.

Once you get the hang of it, it actually goes pretty quickly. For the full tutorial visit my teacher’s blog Avenue Lifestyle where she shares a step-by-step description. Thanks again Holly for teaching and inspiring me. This wreath is the first of many more now that I know how to. I’m already thinking about making an autumn foliage one.

Tip: If you save the wreath in the fridge, or keep it in a cool place during the nights you get to enjoy it for approx. 4 days.
