40 Christmas Wreaths Ideas for 2011

Starting from today we are trying to cover more Christmas related articles to help having a beautiful and warm holiday. Ancient Greece, Rome and other ancient civilizations have witnessed wreath to come from the depths of past into their hands and making headway to the eternal future. Wreaths always come as an auspicious symbol: sometimes to mark the victory over enemy, sometimes to speak the language of goodwill and even indicating the future. Only a wreath can assure you in Shelley’s expression, “if winter comes, can spring be far behind”?

Down on earth, its Christmas time and you need to decorate wreaths for the doors, windows, staircase, walls etc. Take a thick metallic wire; tie the ends to give it a circular shape. Now, tie chopped twigs with a leaf or two, in a continuous way in a circle. Get some colored balls and ribbon. Cover the bare parts of the twigs with colored balls and in between put bows made with ribbon. You can also tie silver colored stars.

Traditionally, holly berries are used in making wreaths. It is believed that Christmas got the green and red hues from these. You can make a wreath with holy berries and decorate with pinecones, white flowers, to attach the flavor of the season including snow. You can hang such wreath in your staircase.

For an updated version of wreath you can use leafy twigs tied to form a circle, with pinecone, white balls and apples and oranges tied to it. They will not only add colors but also forms to your wreath. Place it on the centre table and put candles in the middle of it.

Since wreath indicates a constant flow of time, children must have their say. Mama’s green scarf, Dad’s red tie will beautifully form the circle. Now let it decorate with multicolored balls tied on each side of the circle.  Discarded ornaments can extend its glitter to reflect the ardent spirit of the children.{pics from bhg.com and flickr}
