This holiday I was obsessed with FRESH wreaths. A few of the local flower shops were offering classes on how to make them but for 150$/person !! I was tempted for about 24 hours but then the cheap in me had to find another way.
First, I studied this amazing tutorial series on Youtube.
Then I picked up supplies from our local flower market. The 10" wire wreath frames were purchased from Coast Wholesale Florist for $1.25/piece, the fresh pine cuttings were FREE from local Christmas tree lots (who were happy that I was helping them get rid of it).
To accent the pine cuttings, I bought some cedar branches, bay leaves & holly berries at the flower market for 6$/bunch. One of my girlfriends brought in rosemary branches from her backyard. I cut a few succulents from my container garden and brought in some leftover Christmas ribbons.
So for about 5$/person we had enough supplies for a night of fun wreath making :)
