Natural Sympathy Wreath

Natural Wreath for Sympathy Tribute (alternative: Door Wreath or Table Centrepiece)

Time: 30 minutes and 7 seconds

In this demonstration you will learn how to create a beautiful, rustic wreath design using a foam base (plastic backed). The design is incredibly versatile and can be used as a funeral tribute, table centrepiece or hung on a door at Christmas.

Wreaths are incredibly popular toward the latter part of the year to hang on doors, however they can be used all year round. In this wreath, Debbie our tutor will illustrate how to create the design from start to finish, incorporating a beautiful range of seasonal foliage, berries and decorative features.

If you would like to create a more sustainable wreath, you can use a wire base (resuseable) with moss, salix base or chicken wire. Most of the materials used in this arrangement are long lasting and would suit both indoor and outdoor use.

To recreate the design, you will need:

1 Floral Foam (Plastic Back) Ring 14-16″
1 pair ofScissors and/or Secateurs
1 wrap of Clematis Kibo (seed heads)
1 wrap of Ligustrum (Black)
3-5 stems of Eryngium Thistle 40cm – 50cm
5-6 stems ofPapaver stems (fresh or dried)
5 sticksBadam
1 bunch ofIvy with Berry (foraged or purchased)
1 wrap ofSalix Salum
