Making a Traditional Greenery Wreath

Instructor: Clara Curtis

ONLINE "Live-Time"' Sessions: Tuesday, December 8 and Wednesday, December 16; 3 - 4 p.m.

Free to Arboretum Members | $25 Non-member


The Arboretum's annual wreath-making class takes on a new format this year. Join Clara Curtis, the Arboretum’s senior director for mission delivery, to learn how to make a festive holiday wreath. Participants will be sent a pre-recorded video tutorial to watch on their own time, learning classic wreath making methods and creating a full-sized door wreath using the hand-wrapped bundle method. Then take advantage of two opportunities to join us online for Wreath Q&A, Show & Tell, and a bonus tutorial on tying it all up with a lavish bow. Consider it our gift to you!


  • The video along with a list of suggested wreath-making materials and Clara's instructions will be sent on Wednesday, December 2.
  • Online "live time" tea-time sessions are Tuesday, December 8, and Wednesday, December 16, from 3 to 4 p.m. Choose one or the other or both!
