imbolic wreath/crown

Brighid is the goddess who reminds us that spring is around the corner. She watches over hearth and home, and this craft project combines her position as firekeeper with that of fertility goddess. Make this crown as an altar decoration, or leave off the candles and hang it on your door for Imbolc.

You'll need the following supplies:

A circular wreath frame, either of straw or grapevine
Winter evergreens, such as pine, fir or holly
Spring flowers, such as forsythia, dandelions, crocus, snowbulbs
Red, silver and white ribbons
Candles at least 4'' long -- tapers are perfect for this
A hot glue gun


First place the wreath form on a flat surface. Using the hot glue gun, attach the candles around the circle.

Next, attach a mixture of winter greenery and spring flowers to the wreath. Blend them together to represent the transition between winter and spring. Make it as thick and lush as you can, weaving in and around the candles.

Wrap the ribbons around the wreath, weaving between the candles. Leave some excess ribbons hanging off, if you plan to hang this on your door or a wall, and then braid it or tie in a bow. If you're using it on an altar, light the candles during rituals to honor Brighid.

Might I add that this comes from the celebration of Candlemas (or the Feast of the Purification of the Virgin), which is Catholic. Young girls in the Church would wear the wreath on their heads with candles lit to represent Mary being purified after the birth of Jesus Christ.
