Floral designers across the country are reinventing wreaths—and sharing their secrets at workshops. We peeked inside their classes for inspiration.
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.”
