equipment to make christmas wreath

The unstoppable rise of Christmas wreath making continues.  Whether it’s the chance to get artsy and crafty, the unmissable Instagram boasting opportunities or the free mulled wine while you beaver away with twigs and foliage, you lot are certainly mad about making your own.

This year we’ve found wreath workshops using everything from traditional pine and holly to willow and even scraps of fabric. Some come with a cuppa and a mince pie; others with a Champagne lunch (oh, OK, if you insist).

If we’ve missed any good ones that still have availability, just let us know in the comments box below and we’ll add them to the list.
