Christmas Wreaths in ASCII Text Art
Creating an ASCII Art Christmas Wreath
Making the Christmas wreath is fun, there is so much you can do with them. I don't just mean ASCII art wreaths. This year we made a wreath with gingerbread men created in felt, beads, embroidery and then stuffed and mounted on a big wire wreath. I have it lit up and sitting in the back window now.
An ASCII art wreath also has that endless mutability, just take an idea and go with it. The only limit is putting it onto a circular wreath shape. When making an ASCII art wreath you need to consider how you can make your shapes (from Christmas lights, gingerbread men or anything else) work on different levels, from different angels, on the wreath. You either keep all your shapes the same, exactly or you put in the extra work to figure out how to make them work. This is why most wreaths are kept simple. Making a nice, smooth circle in ASCII art is enough of a challenge!
