Bring your Merry and we’ll make Memories as we turn our hearts towards home, decorate wreaths, create beautiful bows and leave inspired. Join us at the Becoming Cottage on Sunday, November 19, 2023.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so come meet new friends or grab a sister, mom, daughter, neighbor, co-worker and join us as we ring in the holiday season with our annual Becoming Cottage “Deck the Halls” Holiday Workshop. While the time states it’s 3:00-5:00, you are free to linger around the table for much longer.

To see the fun we had last year, head to Jen’s instagram @jenschmidt_beautyandbedlam or follow the Becoming Cottage @becomingcottage

Join host Jen Schmidt, author of “Just Open the Door” /founder of the Becoming Conference, alongside master workshop teacher April of West & Co for an afternoon of hands-on fun, encouragement and inspiration.
Not only will you leave inspired and refreshed with simple tips and ideas from Jen on how to make your holiday season a bit more magical, but we are combining three of April’s best workshops packed into one afternoon.

1. DIY/Decorate a large, fresh evergreen wreath.
April will demonstrate how to make a door sized wreath (to save on time she’ll bring one pre- made for every guest) and then we will decorate them at the cottage. We will provide cones, ornaments and ribbon for decorating, but feel free to bring any additional personalized items for your wreath.

2. Bow Making Workshop
She’ll be teaching us a step by step guide on how to make our own Long Tailed Layered Bow! You know the gorgeous ones we see on doors/wreaths? Now we can do it ourselves. Plus learn how to make them for beautiful presents. She’ll bring ribbon to create one for your wreath, but feel free to bring extra ribbon to match your decor and she can help walk you through the process.

3. Winter Wreath Inspiration
We know some of you may already have your Christmas wreath (perfect time to gift one to unsuspecting friend), but come learn on how to change it for the season as she shares how to decorate Winter Wreaths for the New Year, as well as incorporate eucalyptus.

We are going to have a blast, so come ready for all the intangibles that we can’t name like the magic of gathering together, the joy of the season and of course, mulling cider, hot cocoa and snacks while we sing some carols.
This event is held indoors at the Becoming Cottage “Barn,” but we hope the weather allows us to move around both inside and outside the property, so bring a jacket.
