Creating decorations with winter greenery heightens our senses, is joyful and calming. This design is borrowed from ancient Roman relief sculptures of garlands. Each garland was held up with a sacred dish or ox skull. We will make ours with greenery and ribbon. These can also stand alone as an alternative to door wreaths and can be made to any size. Dates: Saturday, December 11 at 12:00 PM PST; Tuesday December 14 at 10:00 AM PST; Friday December 17 at 8:00 AM PST Materials A mix of winter greenery about 24 inches in length, but it can be shorter or longer. All should be somewhat the same length, but variations are okay. Examples are Cypress, pine, fir, eucalyptus, holly, and mistletoe. Smaller decorative flowers and greenery.
