Wreath Making at Victorhill Farm

Before the farm is officially open for the upcoming holiday season, after the trees are all trimmed,we are busy making and decorating wreaths. My favorite part is the wonderful woodsy pine needle scent of wreath making that fills the whole shop! If only I could bottle it up to whiff the heady aroma all year long!
The first step in making a wreath is gathering boughs. Only the tips of branches are used.

Joe, getting into the holiday mood helping out by adding bows to wreaths. (Shhh, he doesn't know I posted this photo! He thinks it's girl's stuff to fluff up wreaths with bows and stuff.)

If you are unable to visit the farm during the holiday season to pick out your wreath, no worries you can have it shipped right to your door! Wreaths are located at my Blenda Studio Shop in a special Holiday Wreaths Section
