Make your Own Balsam Fir Wreath

with Lauren Kircheis


Learn to make your own double-sided fir wreath for the holidays! Wreath making has long been an important tradition and cottage industry in the state of Maine. These gorgeous wreaths make a great addition to your home holiday decor, or use it as a gift with a personal touch! A small selection of ribbon, bows, fruit and other decorative items will be available. Feel free to bring any decorative items you may already have to decorate your wreath!

The price reflects the cost per-wreath kit. Families or groups are welcome to buy and work on a single wreath kit. A few extra kits may be available to purchase at the event on a first-come-first-serve basis. The class is hosted outdoors in our timber-frame barn, while the space is equipped with a pellet stove, we recommend bringing layers. This class is appropriate for most age groups.
