I looked online for the origin of the tradition of the wreath. There are a lot of ancient stories of wreaths, but I think the tradition of the wreath came about from German Lutherans who created the advent wreath to symbolize eternity through God’s grace. I like that.
I needed a wreath for my front door to go along with the gingerbread/candy cane theme of the front yard. I wanted it to be bright enough to be seen from the street. Kristen’s Creations has the directions for a mesh ribbon wreath that I really liked but I couldn’t find the ribbon at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. This is my interpretation.
