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.
