Autauga County Family and Consumer Sciences regional Extension agents Janice Hall and Sallie Lide-Hooker worked together on a recycling project with Autauga County seniors as part of the county Centennial Service Initiative. Hall and Lide-Hooker shared a video demonstrating instructions on how to make wreaths using recycled or new, plastic table cloths. The video was produced by Extension Communications Producer Mario Lightfoot and featured Hall and Sheronda Armstrong, director of Edmundite senior center in Selma.

The tablecloths were folded and cut into 1 ½ inch strips that were then individually tied around a metal clothes hanger that had been shaped into a circle. Variations could also be made in the shape of letters, etc.

Hall worked with seniors at the Marbury and Mount Sinai Centers and Lide-Hooker worked with the seniors at the Autaugaville and Billingsley Centers.

The project is ongoing through September. During the month of September, the completed wreaths will be shared with hospital patients, nursing home residents and with shut-ins in Autauga County in hopes of brightening their day.
