Good things and good fun come from holiday workshops. At the Berkshire Botanical Garden, The Editor led a workshop making charming holiday windows. Branches were wired together to make a four-pane ‘window’ like hanging.
Then the fun part began with the many materials available to decorate the windows. Dried magnolia leaves – don’t you love the rich brown suede reverse side of the leaf? – along with ribbons, cones, berries and other branches.
Dr. Seuss’ “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” was the inspiration for a workshop led by JJJ for the Memphis (TN) Garden Club.
Formerly the home of a founding member of the Club, the wonderful facilities of the Dixon Museum and Gardens are a wonderful spot in which to hold their workshops. Here are the ‘ingredients’ for a Christmas Grinch decoration: green wire, a bright red ornament with a Carolina Sapphire Cypress.
