Since our last Member Make workshop was just three weeks ago, we decided this month’s workshop should be a bit simpler (though it is still an intermediate project!). This pussy willow wreath has a lovely natural look that’s perfect for spring. And to give it a little more character, we added a few crepe paper apple blossoms and buds. 

To get ready for our workshop, gather the tools and materials you need below and be sure to read our instructions. Then join us for our live workshop on March 12th at 11 am PST.

Keep blooming

Maybe it’s all the snow this past month, but we are more eager than ever for some signs of spring! We have seen snowdrops and crocuses pop up just recently, and can’t wait for more flowers to start blooming. Of course we also like to get ready for spring by decorating our homes for the season. And one easy way to do that is with a handmade wreath. 

We love how this willow wreath turned out and can’t wait to see your version! If you haven’t joined us for Member Make before, be sure to read the instructions on how to participate.

Instructions

If you want to craft along with us during our live workshop, be sure to make your pussy willow branches first. Because we have a separate photo tutorial and written instructions for the branches, we will not be going over how to make them during the live. Instead, we will show you how to make a willow wreath with your branches as well as the small blossoms and buds.

Note: You will need some extra natural wire and brown floral tape in addition to the pussy willow branches to make the wreath during the live. For the flower buds, you can use the extra cotton spun paper eggs from the pack we listed for the pussy willow branches. Another option is to use 8mm or 10mm cotton spun paper balls. (For those asking, we didn’t add greenery to this wreath, but did style the photo with our crepe paper pear branch!)

As always, the flower pattern is at the end of this post. See you on the 12th!
