Grade: C-  The sound and picture quality were good.  The presentation flowed well.  The framing was excellent.  You enunciated clearly and distinctly.  All well done.  I liked the way you presented plant combination ideas for materials for making the bundles.  But, what is the tie thing you talked about…wire?  Where do you get it, how much do you need, and DOES YOUR COMPANY SELL IT?  The frames looked interesting…and you said they come in different sizes….so how about a little help here—-what size for a front door,  Or carriage lanterns on the garage,  Or a table display?  And, again, DOES YOUR COMPANY SELL THEM?  (((You really need to take advantage of opportunities to sell items….now if I decide to proceede I have to find someplace that sells this stuff—- maybe a competing nursery that can help me make one!!!)  You said to tie them tightly together, but your video didn’t show how….I couldn’t see it done.  Do you braid it, wrap it, tie it several times, or what?  That section should be slow, detailed, and deliberate…I have a feeling it is critical to a good presentation.  Then you say to tie it to the cross member.  Let’s play dumb….what’s that? SHOW ME and show me how.  I can’t see in the video HOW you are tying it to the frame.  You say to overlap the other components, but don’t show HOW to overlap them.  I have never made a wreath, and while I can now probably gather the materials, I still don’t really know how to make a wreath.  You are on the right track, just need to provide more detail and clearer instructions.

Excellent presentation.  Helpful and concise.  I can’t wait to make my own wreaths and I’m thinking that next year everyone will get a homemade wreath made from my lovely pines.

For Norm (previous comment):  I think they were hoping for some sort of basic craft skill in their viewers.  The frames and craft wire (which she mentioned specifically) can be purchased at any craft store.  Amounts and sizes will depend on what you’re making them for.  This is a simple starter vid not a full class.

I’ve never made a wreath. (I have made a few videos for work and advertising) I thought it was a great video with enough detail included to do it myself! Thanks for the idea and the quick tutorial! I especially liked the selections of different green combinations. A+

Norm, Thank you for your detailed feedback. The wreath frames and florist wire are available at local craft stores. We try to keep our videos short, therefore we did not have time to show Tricia doing each motion. The size of the wreaths for different locations is up to you—gardeners make decisions about size/scale all the time and this is a chance to use your creativity! Again, thank you for watching and commenting!
