NotesDID YOU KNOW?

DIY wedding gifts come in all shapes and sizes and if you choose to give the happy couple a monogrammed wreath, you are choosing a craft with a rich and storied history. If you go back a couple hundred years, you'll realize all wreaths used to be homemade - there weren't department stores selling them during the holidays.

Also, wreaths weren't always used as decorations on doors or walls. In fact, they were worn as crowns by Etruscan rulers. If you look at images of ancient rulers, you will probably see many wreaths worn as headpieces.

Moving closer to modern times, people would hang wreaths known as harvest wreaths. These decorations were typically made with wheat or other harvested plants. Hanging a wreath was part of a ceremony that ended with a celebration and a feast.

Today, the wreaths we hang on our front door, such as the Mossy Monogram Wreath you see here, are known as advent wreaths. Made of evergreens to represent everlasting life and a circular shape to represent God, they are a Christian tradition most often reserved for the holidays of Christmas and Advent.

If you receive a homemade wreath as a DIY wedding gift, you are participating in a tradition dating back centuries. Numerous groups of people over many, many generations are connected by a simple door hanging and now you can take part in the rich story of tradition.

The chevron pattern is really hot these days and it makes such a pretty statement! Love the giant initial in the moss green which really would be a conversation starter! If moss isn't your thing, you could substitute green velvet for a similar look, especially if you wanted to place it inside or in a darker area. Very creative and unique!

This would be a perfect housewarming gift for a new couple!!
