Alcorn Extension Program to host a Wreath Making Demonstration

The Alcorn State University Extension Program will host a Make and Take, Do It Yourself Wreath Demonstration Wednesday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Jefferson County Multi-Purpose Building in Fayette, Mississippi.

Jardana Brice, family and consumer science educator, will discuss topics such as décor on a budget, when to shop and save, and beating retail prices.

All participants are required to purchase and supply their own materials which can be found at any local general merchandise store. Materials include a standard garden hose (any color), lightweight gardening gloves, glue gun and glue sticks, zip ties, colorful artificial flowers, and a roll of decorative ribbon or a bow.

Depending on your preference, you may purchase additional items for your wreath such as artificial insects (lady bugs, butterflies, etc.), lightweight plastic flowers and watering cans, artificial animals (owls, birds, etc.) or wooden initials.

“Come and learn about ways to beautify and add value to your home while saving cash,” said Brice encouraging the community.

She added, “The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back into your pocket.”

This event is free and open to adults. Pre-registration is required. Contact the Jefferson County Extension Office at (601) 786-3131 to pre-register. For more information, please contact Jardana Brice at (601) 786-3131 or [email protected].
