Cutting greenery from tree branches and creating a Christmas centerpiece, starting with a 29 inch long piece of PVC tubing, cutting to the correct length and assembling a marshmallow shooter, selecting six old records, drilling/piecing together followed by painting to create a flower to be used as a landscape decoration, creating a tin book scrapbook and measuring dry ingredients correctly to make cookies in a jar were enjoyed by the Fayette County 4-H youth who recently participated in the project workshop. This project workshop was led by members of the Fayette County 4-H Council. Workshop Photos
