Wreaths for ev­ery home style.

A few years ago, Kather­ine Klun­der in­vited friend and fel­low flo­ral de­signer Er­ica Long to make wreaths with her for the hol­i­days. Mid­way through, Er­ica asked, “When can we do this again?” To­day the two bring their boho aes­thetic to wreath­mak­ing classes across L.A. and Van­cou­ver, Canada, year-round. TO MAKE THIS WREATH Insert 5- to 8-inch-long branches of cedar or Douglas fir into one side of a grapevine wreath to cre­ate a half-cir­cle. Clus­ter leu­ca­den­dron flow­ers at the top and bot­tom of the wreath, se­cur­ing with florists wire. Wire pinecones and privet berries among the green­ery, then crown the wreath with a suc­cu­lent.

Flo­ral de­signerEr­ica Long of Cu­rat­edLA rec­om­mends giv­ing your wreath a fo­cal point. Her un­con­ven­tional sug­ges­tion: “Add one gor­geous bigsuc­cu­lent.”
