Fall Wreaths are Both Decorative and Symbolic
We’re entering the season of family, friends, thankfulness and compassion. The circle shape of a wreath represents all things positive for a season; infinity, unity, time, protection, and the continuity of change.
Below you’ll find three popular styles of fall wreaths and their meanings. Which one best describes you and your home?
1. A Fall Wreath with Lights – Goodness & Intelligence
Lights represent illumination and intelligence. It’s a way to express your true belief in the world’s goodness. If you’re the sort who still sees hope where others can’t or won’t, then a fall wreath with lights is you.
A wreath with lights also provide a dual function; beauty and light. You’ll notice that most fall wreaths with lights operate with a battery and a timer.
If investing in a new fall wreath with lights isn’t doable, you can wrap your own battery operated lights into an existing wreath. The nice thing about putting lights into an existing wreath, is that you can remove them a little easier than you can with a store bought ready-lit autumn wreath.
2. A Fall Wreath with Burlap – Humbleness & Simplicity
One word describes the symbolism of burlap best, humbleness.
The meaning of burlap comes from it’s biblical connection to sackcloth and today has morphed into the more modern meaning of simplicity.
In biblical terms, (1 Kings 21:27-29) it says, “And it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly”.
If you want your home’s feeling to be one of humbleness and simplicity, then a fall wreath featuring burlap is the way to go.
Burlap exudes a natural, DIY crafters feel.
3. Fall Wreath with Sunflowers – Happiness & Hopefulness
A fall wreath featuring sunflowers speaks to the happiness and hopefulness of the home owners. If you’re inclined to feature sunflowers in your fall wreath, you’re likely a person who looks on the bright side of life.
Sunflowers also represent loyalty and longevity. If your home life represents commitment and fortitude, then sunflowers in your wreath are a logical choice.
The warmth of your home will be on full display by all who walk up your front step.
