Tis the season

Holiday Wreaths with Fortunate Orchard & Field Trip Society

Last Sunday I attended this wreath making class with Field Trip Society and Fortunate Orchard. It was a perfect opportunity to start off the holiday season, as well as catch up with some friends that I haven’t seen in awhile. Field Trip Society offers awesome classes, and this one was as great as the ones I’ve taken in the past. A few of the folks in the class have taken this one before and it’s become a holiday tradition for them. I think I agree with this sentiment, and will probably do it again next year!

 

THE LOCATION

The class was held at the Seward Park Audubon Center. It was a drizzly and cold day in Seattle, but this location was so awesome. We warmed up by the fire with cookies and hot cider.

 

THE MATERIALS

So many gorgeous swags of greenery and additions like branches, pine cones and dried berries.

 

THE PROCESS

The instructions weren’t complicated, but it just took some good old elbow grease (and some gardening gloves) to tie all the boughs onto the grapevine wreath.

 

THE FINISHED PRODUCT

Here is my first ever created wreath! It’s not super clean, but I kind of like it’s natural look. :)
