Make-your-own kit contents
Your kit comes with all you need to make a luxury Christmas wreath. It will come in a re-usable jute bag if delivered locally or a dispatch box if posted. In it you will find:
12” wire frame (to make a Classic wreath) or a number of small, locally sourced branches (to make a Contemporary wreath base)
Moss (if required for your kit)
Seasonal fresh and dried foliage
Selection of natural decorations
Wires (to fix decorations)
Your choice of ribbon (rustic hessian or choice of taffeta)
An instruction sheet including your link to a video tutorial with Suzanne
We have rustic hessian and a range of taffeta ribbons which you select at the checkout for both ready-made and make-your-own kits - there is also the option for "no ribbon". A variety of pictures on the website shows the ribbons used in different ways. For ready-made wreaths, when a ribbon is selected, we will place it in the most appropriate place for the design unless you have requested something specific in the Comments section when ordering.
Flying disposable luxury items is becoming - quite rightly - increasingly unpopular. We care about the products being not only beautiful but sustainable. Where we can, we have sourced products from the UK. For example our Nordmann Fir tree branches are from Merri Christmas Tree and Flower Farm in Bedfordshire, our moss comes from Norfolk and our hops come from Kent. Much of the dried materials like the Honesty and Nigella has been grown at Ashwell Flowers. Wreaths, garlands and foliage are compostable - the only items you need to pick out are the wires and, with Classic design wreaths, the wire frame which can be used another time.
We want you to be delighted with your purchase and are happy to refund you if this is not the case. Call us within 24 hours of delivery and we will provide a refund. For workshops please let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel so we can find a replacement. If this is due to COVID or is made with at least a weeks notice we will refund you. If cancellation is within 1 week we will provide a credit note.
Any queries about anything do just get in contact.
