DecorBook Classic : The Uncommon Wreath, 2022
Every home should have a wreath - whether it makes an appearance for holidays or is displayed year-round. One of the most ancient decorating traditions, the wreath seems to date back to Persia, eventually finding its way on the first heads of Olympic athletes in 776 BC. Maybe some athletes saved their wreaths by hanging on a wall. Wreaths are still a world-wide decorating trend. A wreath is affordable or easy-to-make and only limited by your imagination. Here's some favorites this holiday season.

Maybe my favorite wreath this year. What a great way to keep a collection of little ornaments and holiday whatnots together to be enjoyed all at once.
