Kids can visit with Santa and make their own ornaments for free, while adults purchase and decorate a wreath at Backbone Valley Nursery on Saturday, November 30.

“Show up anytime between ten and two (o'clock),” said Mary Kay Pope, a landscape professional at the nursery. “We’ll have all the stuff you need to make a wreath on hand. This is my favorite workshop; it’s a lot of fun.”

Wreaths are $39.99 for 28 inches and $49.99 for 32 inches. Those who decorate their wreaths during the workshop get a $5 discount. All the natural trimmings are free. Artificial trim and hand-tied bows have nominal fees.

Pope and others will be on hand to offer decorating tips.

“I love that people who don’t think they are creative come out here and make beautiful wreaths,” Pope said. “I hear it all the time: ‘It’s easier than I thought.’ Or, ‘I’m not a creative person and this is really beautiful!’”

Visitors are welcome to watch the workshop for free and participate in the other free activities. (Bring your camera for photos with Santa.)

Backbone Valley Nursery is located at 4201 FM 1980 in Marble Falls. Call 830-693-9348 for more information.

If you miss the workshop, be sure to pick up a copy of the December issue of The Picayune Magazine, which features a how-to from Pope on decorating wreaths with a Texas Hill Country flair.
