It's a huge, oversized, sumptuously illustrated, ultimate starter guide to wreaths. They're always the crowning glory of your Christmas decorations--and you'll find outstanding Noel ones here, with strings of pearls, gold angels, cinnamon sticks and silver artemesia. But why limit them to only one holiday? Wreaths are perfect for any occasion, and these more than 200 examples prove that point, beautifully. Some are for everyday home decor, others for special moments like weddings and housewarmings. All incorporate an amazing variety of objects, from traditional cones and dried flowers to surprisingly novel items like fresh fruits, jewelry, silks, and wine corks. Once you get the technical basics (choosing and disguising a base, applying the materials, making the hanger), indulge your imagination on wreaths for the wall, table, trees, even jewelry. Celebrate a wedding (or Valentine's Day) with a heart-shaped wreath adorned with special, symbolic flowers. Welcome baby with ribbons and a teddy bear. Entertain in style with a candle-embellished centerpiece. And remember: wreaths can come in any shape...even a square!
