Holiday Wreaths Featured on Postage Stamps go on sale October 25

Inspired by the holiday decorating traditions of early America, the four wreaths featured on these stamps are classic yet contemporary. Their designs create feelings of warmth and welcome. Wreaths are often made from materials easily found during the winter months.

The ribbon leaf wreath is inspired by French floral art. Aspidistra leaves, folded and manipulated to resemble ribbons, create a long-lasting wreath.

Gilded pinecones and magnolia pods grace the wreath trimmed with cranberry red ribbon.

Red and gold ribbon adorns the wreath made from gilded dried hydrangea, eucalyptus and nandina foliage, red berries, and small ornaments.

The woodland bush ivy and red winterberry wreath present a classic red and green palette.

Add these elegant stamps to your cards and letters to share holiday greetings with family and friends. Antonio Alcalá served as the art director of the project and designed the stamps with floral artist Laura Dowling. Dowling designed the wreaths for the stamps, which were photographed by Kevin Allen.
