A VIRTUAL ART OF HEALING PROJECT
Create a harvest wreath to celebrate the changing season in this virtual workshop led by Kristin Heron.
Appropriate for all artistic skill levels, this project features a meditative component to provide participants the opportunity to focus on the present moment and to set and accomplish an achievable intention. Our Art of Healing program was specifically designed for those dealing with a difficult health issue (caregivers, survivors, etc.) or any person in need of reflective time.

Harvest Wreath Video Tutorial
Wrap the stick or vine into a wreath (or use a store-bought wreath)
Deconstruct the cardboard egg carton, so that you have individual cells
Trim the edges of each cell to clean it up
Cut the edges of the cells, to transform them into flowers. Use pointy cuts to create sharp petals and/or rounded cuts to create softer petal shapes. Consider cutting flowers to layer inside one another, to create depth. Turn some of the scraps into leaf shapes.
Paint the flowers and leaves on both sides. Let dry
After the first layer has dried, add details to the flowers with more paint. Let dry.
Use hot glue to attach the flowers to the wreath form.
Twist the wire onto the top of the wreath to create a hanger.
