History of the Wreath

The history of the wreath is very interesting. There are a couple of ideas of when wreaths began.

The first recorded wreaths are dated back as far as the Greek and Roman era. A wreath was a representation of the Greek and Roman people. 

Some of these people made, by hand, round wreaths. These wreaths were made from things they found along the search for useful items to make one out of. Some of these items were small sticks or twigs, flowers, tree leaves, small nuts and berries. 

These wreaths were worn on their heads and had quite an important role. You could tell by their "headdress" their rank, status in the group, what they did for an occupation and even their accomplishments. 

The word wreath means "a thing bound around". This comes from the Greek word, diadema.

During the Olympics, the winners of the games were presented with a wreath to wear on their heads as a symbol of victory. 

These were called a Laurel Wreath.

Another theory on the history of the wreath goes back to the early Christians. Before the birth of Christ, they used a wreath as a common practice of thanksgiving. A wreath held a significance as a circle of eternity, a representation of immortality.

How does the History of the Wreath work today?

Well, it has been around for many centuries and wreaths are still popular as a home decoration. They are still made from fresh trees and unique items. Most of the time, you will find a fresh wreath during the Christmas season. 

They can be found hanging on the outside of the door or indoors on a table or a wall. 

The history of the wreath has been faded out over time. Today they are recognized more as a part of the decorating process than as meaningful d├ęcor.

Even as the early wreaths were beautiful in their symbolism and natural elements, the wreaths of today are made with man-made materials and are beautiful in their structure. 

When you see a wreath now, they are mostly made with plastic materials. The bases or forms are artificial greenery and added to that are artificial flowers. Some have coordinating ribbon as an accent along with a sign or symbol of some sort.

All of these together make quite a stunning decoration for any time of the year or any occasion. 

I love making wreaths! They are so beautiful. It is my passion to make wreaths for every home I see. Of course, you know it cost money to make one, so I try and be reasonable with my pricing. I don't overcharge for my work. 

I use good, solid products as I build layer upon layer. If you need a wreath for any occasion, please contact me and I will work with your budget!
