Make Seasonal Decorations at Audubon’s Homemade Holidays

Jamestown, NY – Every year the Audubon Center and Sanctuary brings the outdoors inside with a day of workshops where you can learn how to make your own holiday evergreen wreath as well as other holiday decorations.

Homemade Holidays, a fun, affordable and sustainable event, will be held on Saturday, December 1, from 11 a.m.to 3 p.m. Wreath-making workshops start on the hour (11 a.m., 12:00 noon, 1 p.m., and 2 p.m.) throughout the day.

In a half hour workshop, you can learn how to make an evergreen wreath. Greens, frames, trimmers, decorations and ribbon are all provided. If you have your own pruners, bring them with you though! After the half hour workshop, you have an hour in the workroom to finish your wreath. Assistants will be on hand to help. All the greens are harvested from the Sanctuary and donors, making sure not to harm the trees in the process.

In addition, at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. there will be workshops on repurposing old magazines into decorations, ornaments, baskets, coasters, and more.

This is a great way to spend time with family and friends as the holiday rush begins!

Space is limited for all the workshops. Reservations are appreciated by Monday, November 26, by calling (716) 569-2345 or emailing info@jamestownaudubon.org.

Wreath workshops are $30 or $25 for Friends of the Nature Center; save $2 by bringing your own 10” wreath frame. Magazine repurposing workshops are $7 or $5 for Friends of the Nature Center.

Regular admission ($5, free for children and Friends of the Nature Center) applies for visitors not attending the workshops. There is no charge for shopping at the Blue Heron Nature Store, viewing Liberty, the bald eagle, in her outdoor habitat, or walking the trails, dawn to dusk.

The Jamestown Audubon Center and Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren.
