Christmas Wreath Making Events In Newcastle & The North East

Making your own Christmas wreath for the front door or to hang as a decoration inside your home is a big part of Christmas tradition and fun. Maybe you’re crafty, maybe you want to learn how to be, or maybe you just want a festive activity to enjoy with friends or family. There are a lot of Christmas wreath making events in Newcastle and the North East for 2023, I’ve picked out a few that at the time of sharing still have availability.

Wreath Making Events in Newcastle

As most people want their decorations up at the end of November or start of December, a lot of Christmat wreath making events in Newcastle are very soon, and some have limited availability so book in quick if you want yours early!

I find that it’s quite an expensive activity, as you’re paying for time and expertise of the florist/gardener or specialist, as well as some of the extras that they come with. These Christmas wreath making events across the North East vary in price and extravagance, so pick one that best suits you and enjoy.
