Wreath Making 101: Saturday, November 12th

leave a comment »

(Participants from 2010 wreath making class.)


I often greet November with a bit of dread in my stomach.  With another great season behind us, it’s time to put the gardens to bed and prepare for a long winter inside.  But not the case this year – the winter is going to fly by with all the exciting projects we have going on at the Arboretum!  I will tell you more about what’s in the hopper later this week – today I want to tell you about our wreath making class scheduled for Saturday, November 12th.

This class is hands down my favorite class of the year.  Each participant will create his/her own fresh greens wreath on a 22” frame (the actual wreath will be several inches wider when done) to take home.  We will also have step-by-step bow tying lessons with many great ideas for decorating wreaths with both traditional and contemporary examples.  Because we use fresh greens, these beautiful wreaths will last through the New Year if placed outdoors.  It is the perfect welcome to your front door or better yet, a great gift for family and friends!
