The women’s ministry at my church hosted a wreath-making night last week, and I, of course, documented the whole thing for you.
There were 100+ women at the event, and we all came equipped with our clippers and gardening gloves. They provided the wreath form and florist pins and huge tarps full of fresh greenery. (Isn’t that the best way to make fresh wreaths? Have someone else go out and do all of the clipping for you?!)
We all rushed the greenery at once and started picking out what we wanted. It kind of felt like one of those frantic moments on HGTV’s Design Star where they’re all grabbing the items for their rooms :)
The event was led by my friend Carey, who suggested we start by pinning the same kind of greenery around the outside first and then work our way in, using different layers. (She made this look so very easy in her demonstration.) She also said to go easy on the pins. I didn’t necessarily follow that advice.

I found the perfect spot right on the front of my white cabinet:
