One of the decorations that are always present during Christmas time is the wreath. A Christmas wreath is usually circular in shape consisting of different materials. These include flowers, leaves, fruits, and twigs.
The Christmas wreath is not only for aesthetic purposes, but it has also a meaning. The round shape of the wreath symbolizes that God’s love is unending and eternal life. The wreath is also often hung on the front door. This can mean that the people want to invite good luck and the Spirit of Christmas into the household.
The Traditional Christmas Wreath
The traditional Christmas wreath often includes fresh components. These include fresh leaves, vines, flowers, etc. You can also choose your own color theme or design. Evergreens are usually used as the main component in a traditional Christmas wreath. But you can also use and see designs that have laurel, and fir.
There are no rules in creating your own wreath. Any fresh plants or leaves will do, as long as you know how to design and accessorize it. Others also incorporate ornaments such as berries, fruits, ribbons, and lights.
