Decorating for the Wheel of the Year -- Floral Wreath

Monday, February 4, 2008
Hope all finds you well after Imbolc and that you all had a great Sabbat. I have at time decorated a grapevine wreath for decorations in my house. Decorating it for the different Sabbats and seasons. Now that Imbolc is past and I regretfully have not changed it since Yule, I think that I am going to take the initiative and make a resolution to change the decorations regularly and faithfully.
You can use real flowers for decorations but they may need to be changed more often. I personally use plastic and silk flowers and decorations. The flowers for Ostara that you can use are lillies and tulips. Dandelions and wild flowers. I tend to let my intuition guide me. At this time of the year there is usually a wide selection of Spring flowers. Pastel hues of yellow and pink and blue are also good choices.
Now that you have picked out the flowers that you want to use, the next step is probably the easiest. Since I use plastic flowers for mine, I cut them down to size and weave the stems into the wreath. You may use wire or even zip ties to hold things into place. There is not set rule on how to decorate it, as long as you are happy with it then you did great.

Here is a picture of my wreath, decorated for the Spring season. I will probably leave it this way until Ostara and then change it again for Litha.
Blessed Be!
