  19. Craft Workshop: “Colonial Wreaths & Kissing Balls”

    December 18, 2016, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Pottsgrove Manor

    Learn about holiday decorations from the colonial era, and make your own mini-wreath and mistletoe “kissing ball” in this workshop led by Museum Educator, Lynn Symborski. Fresh greenery was often brought indoors during the holiday season to brighten up the home. One common form was a cluster of evergreens and mistletoe hung from the ceiling and called a “kissing ball.” Using fresh greens, craft materials and ribbons, participants will have a choice of two styles to make their own kissing ball. Wreaths were also seen in the 18th century, but rather than the large ones we hang on our front doors today, these were smaller ones that were hung on the individual panes of a window. We will make one of these mini-wreaths to take home, as well. Crafters may bring their own greens or use those provided at the session. Ages 12 & up.
