What’s the most efficient way to let your neighbors know you’re a fan of holiday cheer? Hang a wreath on your front door. Bonus points if you’ve crafted that wreath by hand. Come to the Wreath Workshop at the Tudor Place Historic House and Garden if you want some expert guidance as you work.
The former private residence (now a museum) is probably the perfect place to make this seasonal craft since you might have noticed that wreaths have been hanging on front doors for hundreds of holiday seasons. Learn a little more about the history of the wreath as you design a vibrant green door ornament using the provided freshly cut heirloom greens. The exact composition of your decoration is up to you, but the staff will offer up everything from holly, pine, and cedar greens to magnolia and cypress. They’ll provide the basic instruction and then let you loose, but if you have any questions along the way, they’ll be more than happy to answer them. The class is slated for multiple dates this December, and registration starts at $45 (including the cost of materials).
