We used to hang a beautiful Christmas wreath in the door at Christmas time to welcome the guests. Some said that the origin of Christmas wreath was from the crown of thorns placed on Jesus' head that was made from the evergreen holy. Why evergreen holy ? Because some people used to worship evergreen holly as a sign of eternal life because it did not turn to brown or die in the winter.

The berries was supposedly in white but turned to bright red, because of Jesus' blood. Some said that holly is represent the return of the sun after a long winter.

Types of wreaths

1. Advent wreath

People of Eastern Europe gathered wreaths of evergreen and lighted fires as sign of hope in the coming spring and renewed light. Traditionally, the wreath is made of four candles in a circle of evergreens with a fifth candle in the middle. Three candles are violet and the fourth is rose, but four white candles or four violet candles can also be used. People used to light of this candle on Christmas Eve, that represents the born of Jesus Christ.

2. Craft wreaths

The craft wreaths are made just for decorations. The craft wreaths usually give a house a Christmas look and feeling. They are usually made out of evergreen leaves which again symbolize life throughout the winters.

3. Dried flower wreaths

The wreaths from dried flower are gorgeous and beautiful. It will make our door or house look more warm and graceful.
We can make the wreaths from fresh flowers too like Hydrangeas, roses, or mixed flowers.
A Christmas wreath can come in any shape, size, and color.

Unique Wreaths

Below are some unique Christmas wreaths ideas:

Paper Christmas wreath, there are many unique, creative, and cute ideas of paper christmas wreath. You may find many ideas of paper wreaths in this blog.

Tissue Paper Christmas wreath
Start by fashioning small fans out of tissue paper. (To form circular shapes, just glue together two fans.) When you have enough circles, glue them to a Styrofoam wreath form and adorn it with faux pearls.

Berries on Ice
This is a unique and simple christmas wreath I ever see. But it really depend on the cold weather. If you live in warmer area, this idea is not so good. Fill a Bundt pan with water and fresh cranberries and place it in the freezer. Once it's frozen solid, remove the wreath from the mold and hang it outdoors. Next? Pray that the cold weather holds.

Christmas Wreath

Candy Christmas wreath

Children will love this kind of wreath. Try the raspberry christmas wreath, A pound or so of raspberry candies rounds out this fiery red wreath. First, wrap a straw wreath form with red ribbon, then use a hot-glue gun to attach each piece of candy.

Cookie cutter Christmas wreath

You may gather cookie cutter and make some unique and cute wreaths. On a flat surface, arrange cutters into a circular shape as shown; clip together where stars touch. Carefully flip wreath over and secure the same spots with additional paper clips. Tightly twist ties around these sections as shown. Evergreen is optional.

Ties Christmas Wreath

I think this idea is so cute and cool, turn Dad's old ties into door d├ęcor. You'll need a 14-inch wire wreath form from a crafts shop and 19 ties. Cut all ties but one into 15-inch lengths. Position the narrow end of first cut tie, front side up, on a section of the wreath. Wrap tie around form until pointed end is positioned as shown, hiding the rolled tie; secure with pins. Repeat, overlapping ties slightly. Flip wreath over; sew rolled-up ties to the backs of points. Pin on the uncut, bowed tie.

Sugar coated fruits wreath

We can make this wreath from artificial fruits like lemons, apples, oranges, berries and many more. Insert a florist pick into each fruit. Roll them, one at a time, in tacky glue that available at crafts stores, then Epsom salts, and finally white, iridescent glitter. Push the picks into a brick of foam and allow the fruits to dry completely. Wrap an 18-inch straw wreath in lime-green ribbon and pin to secure. Use a craft knife to make holes in the ribbon where you will be placing the fruit. Stick the dry fruit into the wreath, starting with the larger pieces. Use a glue gun to secure them. Attach an organza ribbon with wire, then loosely wrap the ribbon ends around the wreath
