When most people think of wreaths, they picture some frilly, leafy thing to hang on your door during the holidays. But wreaths are so much more – an incredible medium for skill, style, and personality, and the people who make them are as talented and passionate as any craftspeople I’ve come across. They take tremendous pride in their creations.

When word got out that I was working on a video about wreaths, my inbox flooded with beautiful wreath photos and self-portraits from all over the country; in total, over 50 different wreath-makers were involved. (One of our wreath-makers even contributed some of the wonderful music in the video.) After meeting a few of them, I discovered the type of folks I’ve always been drawn to: creative, passionate, unique, and even a bit eccentric! In other words, my kind of people (and the perfect subject for a short documentary).
