Make Your Own Holiday Wreath

November 15, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$35 – $45

Pick up your wreath making kit from one of Connecticut Landmarks’ historic properties!

Make a gorgeous holiday wreath to decorate your front door! Connecticut Landmarks’ Site Administrators will take you through making your evergreen wreath step-by-step, and share tips and tricks to make wreath making fun, fast, and easy from the comfort of your own home. The virtual workshop will held via Zoom on Sunday, November 29th at 2 pm and will be available on-demand after the live session to ensure that wreath-makers of all schedules can enjoy this timeless holiday tradition.

All of the necessary supplies to make an evergreen wreath with a decorative bow will be available for pick-up at one of our participating sites. Our wreath kit includes greens, a 12” wire wreath ring, wire, festive red bow, and written instructions. The Zoom link will be sent via email to all registered attendees as the workshop gets closer. In addition to the provided materials, we suggest you have a pair of gardening gloves and clippers on hand for a more comfortable crafting experience. If you wish to forage for pinecones, holly, and other natural materials from your yard or garden (or purchase additional decorations), we’ll teach you how to add them to your completed wreath. Once assembled, wreath dimensions will be approximately 24” in diameter.

The cost is $45 per wreath kit, $35 for CTL Members. Registration is required at https://ctl-wreath-making.eventbrite.com by Sunday, November 15th. Select the pick-up time and location when placing their order from the following options:

Friday, November 27th, 2 – 4 pm
Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden, 9 Main Street North, Bethlehem, CT 06751
Amos Bull House/Butler-McCook House & Garden, 59 South Prospect Street, Hartford, CT 06106

Nathan Hale Homestead, 2299 South Street, Coventry, CT 06238

Once you’ve picked up your wreath kit, put on some festive music to set the mood, grab a cup of hot chocolate, and get ready to create some holiday cheer. For best results, greens should be assembled by December 11th. Share your creation with us on social media by using the hashtag #CTLWreathMaking. The wreath with the most likes by Tuesday, December 15th at 12 pm will win a prize!
