Wreath Making Classes now starting!

Download Attachment...
 FRESH FRAGRANT WREATHS!
Brrrrr! The hot summer days are far behind now that snow has come to visit us again. It is time to start our Christmas Craft Classes!
Today Jen will be teaching our Wreath Class at 1:00 & 6:00 pm! We still have space in each class if you want to join us! It is only $27.50 to make a beautiful decoration wreath! 
How do we make trhem? Well we start with a straw wreath, florist wire, and armfuls of greens. The greens have to be cut into small 4”-6” pieces. Lay the empty wreath on a table and put the spool of wire in one hand. Wrap the wire around the wreath securing it with a twist. Make “bouquets” of greens and lay each one on the wreath. One in the center of the wreath form, then the top, and finally the outside edge. Wrap the wire around all three bouquets and up through the middle. Keep adding the evergreens and wrapping with the wire until the wreath is covered. You will secure the wire on the top of the wreath, making a loop to hang the wreath. It is best to double the wire to make the loop stronger. Once you have completed your wreath it is time to decorate! Fresh dogwood branches from your garden, pine cones from your pine, or berries from your rosybloom can be used to make a natural wreath. Florist picks(small wooden picks with wire attached to the end) can be used to attach the pine cones or berries to the wreath. The wire end is wrapped around the end of the berries or pine cone, then the wooden end is stuck into the straw wreath. If you prefer a more sparkly wreath Christmas picks in red, silver, gold, or bronze can be used. These can usually be stuck through the straw wreath quite easily. Florist wire can be used to make sure they do not fall out. A simple wreath with a red bow and pine cones can be spectacular! The best thing is that you have bragging rights that you created it all on your own!
So drop in today or sign up for one of our other Wreath making classes to become an expert at making wreaths!
Not only do we have all the supply’s you could possibly need, we have the experience to help you create a beautiful fresh wreath! Classes will be held Today November 26th at 1:00 pm, Wed Dec 3 at 1:00 pm & 6:00 pm and Wed Dec 10 at 1:00 & 6:00 pm.Email me at tammy@jensennursery.com or call (204)488-5042 for more information and to register. Fresh wreaths will also be available for sale if you would rather us do all the fun work!!
I look forward to meeting you this Christmas Season!
