NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin State University's Mast Arboretum will host a garden seminar titled "Deck the Halls - Using Evergreens to Decorate for the Holidays" from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 1, in Room 118 of the Agriculture Building on Wilson Drive.
Join Dawn Stover, arboretum research associate, to learn how to create elegant wreaths and garlands using materials provided by Mother Nature. Participants will learn principles of wreath, garland and centerpiece construction and will make a wreath to enjoy at home for the holidays. Evergreen branches and garlands once served as symbols of enduring life and a fruitful year to come. In addition to traditional wreaths and garlands, Stover will introduce new crafts using items from the garden and forest.
