Magical Yule Wreath
Unknown Source (I had a link, it’s dead…)

Yule is the ancient European festival that occurred at the time of the Winter Solstice (when the sun enters the sign of Capricorn). The Celtic shamans, known also as druids, were particularly fascinated by the magical herb mistletoe. This parasitic plant appeared to thrive in the harshness of mid-winter’s freeze. Mistletoe became a symbol for the survival of life even in the midst of death, which is an archetypal spiritual theme found across the globe. The Yule wreath you will make is one that uses mistletoe and all of its mystic symbolism. Go to an arts and crafts store to purchase a circular wire frame. Attach peat-moss with florist’s wire (all found in the crafts store). Attach the moss in a clockwise pattern, going completely around the wreath. As you attach the moss, repeat this chant, imagining the first rays of the winter sun flooding the room with light:

"Winter born, mystic ring,
Bring us power by the Solar King!"

Once you’ve attached the moss, anoint this base-wreath with fresh pine essential oil, which attracts luck and wisdom. Next, using the same florist’s wire, attach springs of mistletoe in a clockwise fashion. When you are finished, hang the magical wreath near the front door or above the hearth to bring you eternal-life, and a sense of renewal, which are the powers of the Solstice sun.
