From: Oldham County History Center
LA GRANGE, KY--Fresh cut wreaths are a great way to spruce up a door, fence or window for the holidays. Join in the fun at the Oldham County History Center as we make simple 14-inch wreaths from fresh cut cedar and pine, and then embellish them with fruit, pinecones, berries, eucalyptus sprigs and colorful ribbon. This workshop is great for beginners or those who want to craft simple, but elegant décor for the holidays.
When finished, the wreaths will resemble the Colonial Williamsburg-style wreaths that hang on 80 historic buildings this time of year in Colonial Williamsburg, VA. Each year it takes more than 3 miles of white pine roping; 2,550 white pine and Fraser fir wreaths; 15 truckloads of pine, holly, boxwood, magnolia and berries; and 79 cases of fruit to assemble Colonial Williamsburg’s wreaths. Quite an accomplishment!
