ArtMart Wreaths

Linda Decorating a Wreath

Art Mart is Tolland’s favorite introduction to the holiday season. Usually held the first weekend in December, the annual sale of hand-decorated wreaths and local crafts is a great way to start your holiday decorating and shopping.

Help us collect! We need materials such as:

  • Dried plants (hang to dry) such as sedum, yarrow, purple sage, dusty miller, silver king, etc.
  • Seed pods, such as lilies, Siberian iris, rose of Sharon, sweet gum tree.
  • Pine cones – particularly the giant cones, or the little ones.
  • Milkweed pods
  • Teasel (Scotch thistle)
  • Globe thistle
  • Acorns
  • Chestnuts
  • Cinnamon fern spore “feathers”
  • Sumac
  • Red- and yellow-twigged dogwood
