In many parts of the world, pine and fir are used to make decorative wreaths. In ancient times, women in Rome wore simple wreaths as a headdress to adorn their heads.
If you plan to make one at home, you can start off by taking a slightly thick craft wire and giving it a circular shape. Once that's done, wrap the wire with colorful thread to form the base.
After the base is prepared, interweave the firs or branches of your choice around the circular ring and repeat the procedure till you achieve the desired thickness. Add glitter to give the bushy green wreath a shine and add the ornaments in accordance with the occasion.
You can decorate these satin wreaths with a little detailed embroidery and add hearts made of the same material and color. The use of sober colors always goes well with the interiors of a church.
For the wedding wreath, you can embellish it by adding an assortment of lilacs, burgundy colored roses, ferns and tulips with a small amount of blue hydrangea to accentuate the borders. Avoid using contrasting colors to decorate wreaths.
You can either decorate artificial wreaths that are available in the market or make it using firs and pines.
