Garland Nursery, Corvallis, OR


Cost: $30. It's so popular we had to offer two workshops! No, we are not talking about bling or the evergreen garland rope that goes on railings. Our definition of swag is "an informal door or wall decoration created from evergreen boughs." Add a bow and some berries or other ornamentation, and you have your very own signature holiday decoration! Great as a gift! It's easy! The class is in a lightly heated house, so dress in warm layers and bring gloves.... 5470 NE Highway 20, Corvallis, OR 97330. www.garlandnursery.com
