The wreath has been viewed as a symbol of power and pride among Romans. To the Greeks, it signifies success and victory. It later became a representation of Christ’s suffering and triumph over death.
Throughout the years, these cultures have transformed wreaths into Christmas decorations, which only becomes more grand and elaborate as the seasons pass.
Today, wreaths are often made with fir. But, if you’re looking to give this traditional décor a modern twist, Lugbill Designs, a Chicago-based interior design firm, has sourced the Internet to provide you with 20 Christmas wreath ideas you can try.
