Pondering about how to touch up your space in a way that identifies with the Easter season? A wreath is your best bet as this piece of evergreen ornament significantly reckons with the reason for the season. It symbolises the crown of thorns that was placed on Jesus Christ’s head by His crucifiers.
 
What the wreath represents at Easter
The circular shape of a wreath represents eternal life. It is also a representation of faith, as some Christians often placed a candle on the wreath during Advent to symbolise the light that Jesus brought into the world.
  


The wreath also symbolises perfection and unity in Christendom through the suffering of Jesus Christ and ultimate triumph over death.
 
Where to set up your wreath
•Start with your entrance door – This gives an Easter warm welcome.
• Depending on the numbers of available wreaths, hang your wreaths against front-facing windows in your living room, dining room and kitchen.
 
How To Enliven Your Wreath
While a wreath is naturally beautiful on its own, you can spice it up a little by twirling a length of purple, white or gold ribbon, which are the three main Easter colours through the wreath before hanging.
