In this premium workshop, you will learn how to create two beautiful wreaths from scratch: an asymmetrical grapevine and a full circle wire frame wreath. Purchasing this workshop today starts makers off with our Pampas & Thistle Materials Kit (see images below) featuring elements to create a full wreath on a wire frame with dried floral ingredients to transition from winter to spring including pampas grass, baby’s breath, and thistles — all the texture for a naturally stylish wreath full of whimsy and romance.
We’ll learn all about the design principles that go into wreath making: layering and depth, volume and height, and the secret to making loose and natural looking wreaths. Natalie walks us through how to layer the textures and elements with whatever materials you have access to in your part of the world. One of Natalie’s favorite things about this craft is that you can set perfection aside and have the freedom to be messy and imprecise in your process. Native Poppy is all about seeing floral design as a natural garden and modeling your creations off of what you would find in nature: florals and botanicals don’t naturally grow evenly or perfectly line up. Allow your designs and elements to be a little untamed with uneven lengths for a wild and elegant creation. Natalie likes to think of wreath design like modeling clay — you can shape your elements and ingredients into whatever you want.
With just a few techniques and skills covered in our digital tutorial, you’ll be able to create one-of-a-kind, uniquely designed wreaths to fit any style. And the best part? This art form is so versatile and flexible, Natalie gives us the confidence and skills to get wild and create beautifully elegant wreaths with any combination of purchased, handcrafted or found elements.
