When it comes to deciding between a fresh evergreen wreath and an artificial one, more people than ever are "going green" and choosing the fresh natural biodegradable evergreen wreaths. Since artificial wreaths are made of plastic and petroleum based products that are not "renewable" resources, they are not biodegradable.. Evergreen wreaths can be "recycled" into useful products, like potpourri wreaths, table centerpieces, or even ground up and turned into mulch for plants!
Christmas wreaths are also a great gift idea for those you care about! You can purchase them ready made at many stores, or be a "do it yourselfer" and create your own wreath using fresh evergreen branches, battery operated Christmas lights, festive Christmas decorations and Christmas craft products from your local craft store. Of course, if you're going to make your own creation, you can let your imagination run wild and use a variety of non-traditional items to create just the look your're trying to achieve!
Whatever the reason for the wreath, it's a tradition that goes back many years and has sustained itself as a popular idea today!
