Wreaths that make me say “Hello Winter”

We are definitely shifting gears for the holiday season.   Now that it’s colder out, we have been baking lots more, getting our turkeys ready for Monday, and starting to make wreaths for some winter cheer!    The wreaths that we normally do are total mixes of all natural, fresh picked greens.   I like to throw in herbs such as artemesia, lavender, rosemary and thyme for fragrance and color.   Our american holly trees had a great year this year, and are loaded with beautiful plump red berries.

We use juniper for garland, just because it makes a nice, flexible and full band.   Also, we use “machines” to make the wreaths and garland.   The tools are not electric powered, and are rather primitive, but work fine for the amount that we make.   We are making garland to order and 10 and 16 inch wreaths.   We are taking orders for different sizes, but these are the most common.

 

While making the wreaths, we use several different tree varieties.   This makes our wreaths ornate, without the use of a bow.

But if bells and bows are more your style, then by all means:
