Hort for the Holidays - Jo Daviess County Edition

Gather your friends for an afternoon of decorating fun as the University of Illinois Extension hosts “Hort for the Holidays – Jo Daviess County Edition. This program is being held on Tuesday, December 20 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Jo Daviess County Extension Office, 204 Vine St. Elizabeth, IL 61028. There will be a $25 charge to attend, and attendees will leave with two projects to take home with them. Pre-registration is required by December 13 to attend. To register or for more information visit us online at or call us at 815-858-2273.

Participants will complete two make and take projects: a Mason Jar Oil Candle and a Holiday Centerpiece using fresh flowers —each of these projects will make beautiful stand-alone items to give or keep, but they also pair well together for a gorgeous holiday display for your dining table.

The Mason Jar Oil Candle is a combination of beautiful pinecones, evergreen sprigs, cinnamon sticks and essential oils—perfect for illuminating your home during the dark and cold winter months.

With the Holiday Centerpiece, participants will learn the basic elements of floral design and create a stunning centerpiece using fresh evergreens, fresh flowers, novelties, and ribbon.
