Wreaths have been around since ancient times and have been part of a variety of cultures. Now there are even wreath of the month clubs and we mostly hang wreaths in our home or use them as part of a display. In Ancient Egypt, wreaths were often made from flowers and leaves in the form of chaplets, which were handcrafted to be worn on the head.
In Ancient Greece and Rome, they made wreaths from olive, pine, laurels, palm, or celery. These wreaths were worn for a variety of reasons, such as:
- Social status
- Winners of the Olympic Games
But wreaths were not only used for adornment; they were also hung on doors. Lovers once hung them on each other's doors as a sign of affection.
Wreaths also played a vital role in Christianity, which is the one we are most familiar with seeing. The Advent Wreath is a symbol of immortality and celebrated “persevering” through winter. Though the wreath has changed throughout the years, the Christmas wreath is most frequently associated with “Christian Immortality.”
Today most wreaths are used to decorate homes, both indoors and outdoors. Wreaths are seen throughout the year and can be hand-crafted with various materials like ribbons, flowers, twigs, greenery, accents, and more. There are no rules about what colors or materials can be used to make a wreath, only that it is a circle.
Wreath of the month clubs come in a variety of options from month-to-month to quarterly. Also, there are wreath of the month kits so that crafters can create wreaths from the comfort of their home. Wreath kit clubs are perfect for beginners and experienced crafters (who might also enjoy a craft club for themselves or their kids).
But if you aren't a DIY-er, no worries, you can sign up for a wreath of the month club that delivers fully assembled wreaths.
