Facts about the door wreath:

  • Fact 1: Rose hips, pine cones, berries or fir green are ideal for Christmas decorations in the form of a door wreath. Just make sure that these natural materials, when collected in the garden or in the forest, are clean and dry. The green should also be checked for any crawling animals and vermin.
  • Fact 2: If the individual branches, berries, branches and flowers have not been cut too short, a pretty and Christmas door wreath can be tied in no time.
  • Fact 3: An advent wreath does not always have to consist of fir green. How about an advent wreath made of wool? You can knit a coat of gray, cream-colored or red wool with the help of wreaths and put it over the base.
