12 wonderful wreaths you’ll want to eat this Christmas
A front door finished with a festive crown announces to the world that Christmas has begun. Sooner or later, neighbours follow suit. Then before you know it, the whole street is sporting that doughnut-shaped decoration. Whatever your style – large or small, sprayed with snow, covered in glitter or bursting with berries – a Christmas wreath makes a statement.
