Fresh Wreath Making 101 at the Collins House in early December was so much fun and the end results were stunning.
The class was taught by Trisha Haislar, AFID.
Ann Badasch wears her favorite "projects apron" - whether she's quilting, hooking rugs or making wreaths, this is her go-to apron.
Austin Welch was a great help. He spent the time making the boxwood clippings that his gramma, Carolyn, and his mom, Rachel, used to create their beautiful wreaths.
Everyone's hands were busy.
Shelley Blumberg and Vicki Borror try to get a bit of perspective on their projects.

What's fun about the fresh boxwood wreath is that it will last outdoors throughout the winter and as it naturally ages the leaf colors with begin to weather.
Vicki is all smiles with her beautiful creation.
Mommy with her helper - PERFECTION 101!
Family fun for Austin and Carolyn.
The Christmas Wreath
Please take this little wreath and hang it in your home.
For this is your reminder that you are not alone.
It’s shape is everlasting with no beginning and no end.
And the red is to remind you that I love you, my dear friend.
The leaves are strong and green like a friendship that is true
That’s why I made this gift special just for you.
A mom and her daughters enjoy a day of wreath crafting fun.
Simple. Elegant. Timeless.
