As much as we love the graceful curves of fresh-cut pine boughs studded with holly berries, traditional wreaths can feel a little too… traditional sometimes (especially when there are so many stunning modern takes on holiday wreaths). And when you can make your own holiday decor out of just about anything, why settle for less? That’s why we’re giving you the opportunity to craft a wreath that will not only be the talk of the neighborhood when you display it on your front door, but will also stay alive long past the Yuletide season.

We’re talking about succulent wreaths. Join Brit + Co at our Holiday Shop and Ali Albiani from Design With Ali for an evening of wreath-making with sips and snacks. This class will cover the basics of wreath making and product selection. You’ll leave with the tips and tricks necessary to give life to a succulent wreath all on your own next year. Sign up for the hour-long workshop, either on Monday, December 14 at 6pm or Saturday, December 19 at 2pm, where you’ll be supplied with everything you need to make your very own succulent wreath to take home and hang on your door.

It all goes down at the Brit + Co Holiday Shop at 2120 Union Street in SF, so after you design your wreath, take a moment (or an hour) to finish up some holiday shopping. With the best-selling products from our online shop, FREE gift wrapping and even more DIY projects on site, this might be the merriest place south of the North Pole. Come visit us Mondays through Saturdays from 11am to 8pm or Sundays from 11am to 5pm.
