CVRA – Wreath Making Event Report
On the evening of Sunday, 11 December several village members and friends gathered in the Village Hall for a Christmas Wreath Making event very kindly led and tutored by Julie Crang.
Upon arrival – there was a real buzz of excitement in the air. Residents who had holly covered with either red or yellow berries and variegated varieties generously had brought this along to be used by everyone.
Julie provided us all with the basic wreath rings and wire and then started by showing us how to start making the wreath with pieces of Christmas tree branches. The concentration on everyone’s faces – some finding this task easier than others – was clear. We were then shown how to add holly – and then how to personalise the wreath with pine cones, berries, bows and ribbons.
Julie kindly came around us all – giving much need support and help and demonstrated where necessary.
Everyone left with their own personal wreath – some to be displayed on gates and doors, others for table decorations and also for a family member’s grave.
For all those present – we are extremely grateful to both Nick and Julie as Nick kept everyone in good spirits with mulled wine and Julie with her expert tuition and patience.
