Book Review
Wreaths and garlands take floral decorations out of the vase and into large-scale special-occasion decorating. Fresh and dried florals, greens, fruits, herbs, and other natural materials can be transformed into wall, door, tabletop, and mantel decor to welcome guests, mark a change of season, utilize a bountiful harvest, celebrate a holiday, or just brighten up a room. Hundreds of color photographs and step-by-step directions for well over a hundred projects fill this vast volume, along with a good introduction to materials, equipment, and techniques. A circlet of fresh flowers surrounds a bowl of floating candles; a swag of seashells and grasses graces a window; a ring of mosses and dried fungi commemorates a country stroll; lovely floral wreaths mark Valentine's Day, Easter, and Mother's Day. And of course there are...

Book Description
These wonderful wreaths go far beyond Christmas decorations. Crafted from pinecones, seashells, autumn leaves, berries, pumpkins, and even styrofoam, they add a beautiful touch to any room all year long. They’re easy to make, too, especially with instructions that carefully outline the basic supplies and show how to make an attractive bow, wire items to the wreath, work with dried materials, enhance pre-made wreaths, and much more. Fashion a lovely seasonal wreath from spring pussy willows and forsythia. Just for fun, use recycled toys on a wreath or “wreath around the clock.” Wish someone a happy birthday with a wreath adorned with party horns, sweets and bright ribbon. One “seedy” wreath is for the birds. They’re all creative, unique, and fun to make.

From Library Journal
This compilation of material from 11 books on wreath making previously published by Lark gives a good overview of all aspects of this very popular craft, including wreaths made of dried or fresh plants, fabric, stuffed animals, candy, or found objects. A section of wreath-making basics precedes the large, full-color illustrations of wreaths by many designers. There are no step-by-step projects, so crafters must use the pictures and construction tips provided by the designers. Since no two wreaths are ever alike, this should not create problems. This is a good selection for libraries needing more wreath-making material. Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Rich textural contrasts, intense colors, and strong design characterize this gorgeous guide that's filled with fabulous color photos and strikingly original projects, all clearly explained. Many are not necessarily round or even made to hang on the wall: the topiary of gardenias, fruit-and-nasturtium table garland, bridal headpiece, chair-back decoration, and banister garland all take the concept of wreath making to new design heights, lending elegance to very special occasions. For some everyday flair, try a horseshoe of succulents, a citrus fruit ring, or a driftwood frame. "The true craft of wreath making," says this talented floral designer, "is taking whatever is plentiful and inexpensive in nature and fashioning it into an imaginative decoration." --Amy Handy
