The welcoming wreath

It invites all callers to come inside and share the Christmas spirit with you

The traditional symbol of welcome and hospitality is a wreath of fresh greens, trimmed to a fare-thee-well.

To make your own, start with a heavy wire frame 18″ in diameter, and use florists’ twine to attach greens: hemlock, yew, pine, whatever is available, and enough to make a fat, thick wreath. Then trim it with glittering ornaments, pine cones, perhaps a miniature sleigh, frosted fruits or attic treasures. Finish it off with a satin or velvet bow if you like, hang it on your front door and get ready to welcome your friends.
