Last Minute Christmas Wreath-Making Classes 2021

Caledonian Park

The rangers at Caledonian Park are excited to invite visitors to create their Christmas wreath using natural materials found in the park and local area. Materials are all provided for this free event – the only thing you’ll need to bring is some festive creativity. The workshop will take place inside the Cally Clock Tower Centre, adjacent to the clock tower in Caledonian Park. Spaces are strictly limited to 20 people, so book soon to avoid disappointment. 11am Thursday 23 December, free event. eventbrite.co.uk

5 tips to decorate your own Christmas wreath

  1. Always work in a clockwise direction, following the wreath’s branches. This will help the wreath’s design to ‘flow’.
  2. Start by adding foliage and natural leaves. We worked with eucalyptus branches to add texture to the wreath.
  3. Use a natural hessian ribbon to tie your wreath to your door, and work with a strong floral wire to wrap around your decorations and insert into the wreath to hold in place.
  4. Keep it natural. If you use natural ingredients like dried fruit, lavender and acorns, rather than going crazy with the tinsel, the whole wreath will dry out evenly and continue to smell great all season.
  5. Work with bunches. Our teacher advised grouping two or three of each item together on the wreath to give more of an organised feel to your design. Tie together a few cinnamon sticks, group a couple of slices of dried orange and wire together three acorns to attach.
