Floral Wreaths Are the Perfect Decor Piece All Year Round
There are various kinds of flower wreaths, used for different purposes. In some cultures, they are used as decor to signify some special occasions like Christmas or welcome spring or any other season. As they are round, e.g., having no beginning or end, they symbolize eternity. So, they are used as decor to express a wish for everlasting happiness, health, and blessings. In many countries’ seasons are welcomed by displaying wreaths made of flowers, green leaves, twigs, and dried flowers, ribbons, pinecones, and various other embellishments can be added as well. Then some wreaths are put on graves to honor the dead. Those wreaths are placed on graves or tombs of famous people. The most beautiful and eye-catching use of wreaths is as headgear. Wreaths made of marigolds or any other summer blossoms make fabulous floral jewelry for young girls or even women of any age. The use of such wreaths is more common in European countries and the USA, where it is associated with traditions and customs. Whereas in many other countries it is used just for decorative purposes.
Now beautiful floral wreaths are also used in weddings. They add a touch of romance and create a kind of pastoral freshness naturally, without artificial lights or glamour.
Last but not least, wreaths are a little piece of art and imagination, adding style and a touch of rural freshness.

How to turn any image into an SVG template?
Interested in learning the easiest way to make your own SVG?
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG format image without having to use any complicated graphics editing software.
First, a quick primer on what is an SVG… SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It is a way to store digital information about an image. Most images you see on the web and other digital devices use a bitmap or pixel based image storage format. In other words, the image is captured with information about each dot in the image.
SVG format images are part of a category of images that are vector based. Vector based images store the image as a series of paths and nodes. Most cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette use SVG format images because the blade on the machine needs to know what direction (or path) to cut.
To turn a bitmap based image into a vector based image, you need special conversion software tools. This is an algorithm tricky conversion because there lots of different ways to do it with varying degrees in quality. Most graphic editing software like Adobe Illustration make you manually decide on those conversion settings which makes it really difficult to use if you’re not already familiar with Illustrator.
I use a software tool called Vector Magic. With Vector Magic, you just upload your image (you can even copy and paste it in) and it automatically just converts to an SVG format for you. You can make editorial adjustments afterward if you’d like but there is a baseline conversion ready to go if that’s good enough.
Here’s an image for you to give it a try yourself. It’s a bunch of cute animal drawings I did the other day. I just took a picture of it with my phone. Try copy and paste this image into the Vector Magic interface. (Right-click on the image below, select “copy”, then head over to Vector Magic and past it into the window or just hit Ctrl+V)
After you pasted your image into the Vector Magic window, it will automatically start to convert your image:
This will take a few seconds. When the process is complete, you will see the vectorized SVG image on the right with the original on the left.
If you don’t like the automated conversion, there are a number of different adjustments you can make from the right tool panel.
After making adjustments, you can download your converted image as an SVG and then upload it to your cutting machine interface like Cricut Design Space below:
