Make a fresh holiday wreath at four local nurseries

Do you have to light a pine-scented candle to have the fragrance of fresh greens in your home?
Fake Christmas trees may be gorgeous and easy, but they just don't cut it in the aroma department.
Why not make your own wreath out of real greenery? Local nurseries offer opportunities and materials throughout December.

Sunnyside Nursery, 3915 Sunnyside Blvd., Marysville
The nursery offers materials, decorations and inspiration for individual or group wreath-making sessions through Dec. 16.
Prices vary, but a standard 12-inch wreath including materials is $40. There are also different forms available, such as a candy cane shape.
Make a reservation for yourself or a small group, or even plan a wreath party for 10 or more by calling 425-334-2002 or email info@sunnysidenursery.net.
McAuliffe's Valley Nursery, 1910 Springhetti Road, Snohomish
Not a wreath, but still round and real: Create a Victorian ivy kissing ball. Made of fresh herbs and greens, kissing balls devolved over time into hanging mistletoe in a doorway.
These classes bring back the original, using ivy, moss and ribbons. Classes are $7 from 2 to 3 p.m Sunday and Dec. 9. Call 360-862-1323 for reservations.

My Garden, 17414 Bothell- Everett Highway, Mill Creek
Sign up now through Dec. 23 to use the wreath-making machines at My Garden. A 10-inch wreath, including frame, greens, cones and a bow, costs $35; a 12-inch wreath is $45. You can also make up your own design by purchasing the greenery and accessories or bringing your own. It's $10 to use the wreath machine. Call 425-402-1842 for a reservation.
Christiansen's Nursery and Greenhouse, 15806 Best Road, Mount Vernon
Make use of the nursery's wreath-making machines between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily through Dec. 24. You can purchase wire rings and greenery or bring your own.
Beautiful displays offer inspiration, and decorative items are available for purchase, too. Make it a party with family and friends. Call 360-466-3821 or 800-585-8200 for reservations.
