persist on continuing my tradition of wreath making only
because other methods of wreath making do not come up to our
standards. An artistic education and nature drive me to
produce quality products with no compromise. Here is how we go
about the process:
of balsam are provide to us a couple times a season from a
order unusual greens from Oregon and have boxes shipped across
the country of Blue Berried juniper, yellow tipped incense
cedar, and port orford-dark green cedar.
also occasionally use various mixed greens from our land or
relatives across the country do us great big favors and
collect pinecones for us. Sometimes Iím sure they feel pretty
funny picking up cones or searching out good places. Itís a
very valuable commodity - relatives and friends. Then they
are shipped to us. We also ship in other cones from North
Carolina and the west coast.
buy in from retail sources dried pomegranates and Christmas
balls and other decorative touches.
We pick up our cut greens
We cut and sort the boughs
into varying lengths in large boxes. We also cut and use
our own white pine.
I assemble the wreaths or sprays - normally
talking about 30-40 min.
Mary or Kate put on the hand made bows and
hanger wire and put on the basic pine cones - sometimes
finishing them up to the final state.
Mostly I dress them with with our mixed bag
of over 12 variety of pine cones, cinnamon sticks, red
berries OR Christmas Balls or other extremely unusual
to sparkling we create a product that is far from your chain
store wreaths and centerpieces. This process is continued
today by very few persistent people.
