Wreaths are an old symbol.
Wreaths are an ancient symbol of victory and power. Green wreaths were often used to crown the winners of the ancient Greek Olympics, and are often pictured in the Greek myths and legends.
This DIY Lego wreath ornament is in keeping with the wreath tradition. The first Christmas wreaths were said to be made by the first Christians using Christmas trees inside their homes. The trees were trimmed to a more pleasing and symbolic triangular shape. And since at that time, people were in the habit of using everything until it was gone, they took the remnant branches and wove them into circles to decorate the tree.

For the medieval Christians, wreaths were symbols of eternity and life. The evergreen branches used to create the wreaths reminded the medieval Europeans of the hope of spring and new life. They wove the branches into circles, not just for the practical purpose of ease of hanging on branches and walls. But also because circles never end, which helped remind them of the promise of Christmas.
The first stand-alone wreath at Christmas was the Advent wreath when four candles are lit in the 4 weeks leading up to Christmas. Today, wreaths are a must-have for any decorated home and adorn doors, walls, and gates everywhere.
