Cornucopia, Candy, and Christmas Trees: An Ornament-Making Workshop

  • Natick History Museum 58 Eliot Street Natick, MA, 01760 United States (map)

Please join the Natick Historical Society and the First Church Natick for an ornament-making workshop led by Rita Parisi of Waterfall Productions. Well into the early 1900's, people decorated Christmas trees with homemade paper, candies, cookies, gilded walnuts, gifts, and other edible ornaments. A particular favorite was the cornucopia, a cone-shaped ornament filled with candy.

Rita Parisi will speak briefly about Christmas tree ornaments from this time and will then instruct participants on how to make a cornucopia of their own. All materials will be provided. Everyone from ages 5 to 105 is welcome. Space is limited, so please email or call (508) 655-0729 to reserve your spot. Note: As of November 26, all spaces for this event are filled.
