Evergreen and Poinsettia Workshop set for Dec. 12
Evergreens are a traditional decoration for the holidays, and that’s for good reason! They smell great, they look great, they last a long time, and they’re available in our own back yards!
University of Illinois Extension will hold an Evergreen and Poinsettia Workshop from 5 to 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 12. Extension Horticulture Educator Candice Miller will demonstrate how to make wreaths, swags, garlands and kissing balls using various evergreens. She will also discuss poinsettia care and provide tips about how to make them last throughout the holiday season.
This program will be a hands-on workshop where you will have the opportunity to make your choice of a wreath, swag or garland. The cost for this program is $20, and pre-registration is required by Dec. 5. Participants are encouraged to bring ornaments, pinecones or anything else they may want to add to their decoration.
This program will be offered at the Ogle County Extension office, 421 W. Pines Road, Oregon, Ill. To register, call the Extension at (815) 732-2191 or visit online at web.extension.illinois.edu/bdo/.
