The wreath, entitled “Once Upon a Christmas,” was created by Terry Karow from vintage materials at a special workshop held at Lucky Junk, 405 S. Arlington Heights Rd., on September 13. The wreath will be donated to the Arlington Heights Historical Society for the silent auction fundraiser Festival of the Wreaths, November 22-December 4, at the Heritage Gallery of the Historical Museum, 110 W. Fremont Street, Arlington Heights.
Vintage scraps of lace and ribbon, along with vintage ornaments, old silver cutlery, and other vintage pieces were combined with a rusted piece of wrought iron fencing for a unique holiday vibe. The workshop was led by Donna Castellanos, who created the wreath entitled Lucky Loco, which won first prize in the Artisan/Professional Category in the inaugural Festival of the Wreaths last year. Lucky Junk is owned by Janet McCarthy, and is located at 405 S. Arlington Heights Road.
Due to the success of the September workshop, Lucky Junk has added another wreath workshop called Woodsy Autumn Wreath on Tuesday, October 11, 6 PM-8:30 PM, cost is $90 and all materials are provided. Register for the workshop by calling Lucky Junk at 847-440-6633.
