DIY: Santa Barbara Wreath Make and Take Class at Armstrong Garden Centers


Earlier this month, I was feeling crafty and I headed to Armstrong Garden Centers in Laguna Niguel with my girlfriends for a Santa Barbara Wreath Make and Take class.

Armstrong Garden Centers offers different gardening classes and events throughout the year…

Thank you Armstrong Garden Centers for inviting me to your Santa Barbara Wreath making class. All opinions are my own.


I love the smell of a fresh wreath during the holidays!

I learned from my instructor that Santa Barbara Wreaths can be made with different plants from in and around my garden.


Our fresh wreaths were picked out for us, laid out,  and were ready for decorating.


I made my Santa Barbara Wreath with eucalyptus, pine cones, berries and succulent clippings…


Our friendly instructor walked us through the process…


I cut a 4″ floral wire from a spool and wrapped the bundle of my selected plants. I made about 7 bunches, then attached them to my wreath. The bunches were place in the direction of the grain.
