Wow.  I bet that would make your door smell nice.

Very nice!  I like the ones with berries or flowers.  My wife would probably allow those to be hung on our front door.

Are the hangy things with ribbons some sort of hop-filled sachet?

Gorgeous wreaths, I can only imagine the aroma from one of those on my dining room table.

Wow, those are really beautiful!

This year I harvested off a few long bines and never got around to plucking the cones.
They have been hanging in a back room of the shop where it is completely dark.

Even now they are a nice green color and still attached to the bine, unlike the persistent stuff in the garden that is all brown from the light and weather.  They do smell great, but are a bit fragile.  I wonder if they spray these wreaths with something to hold them in place?

Might have to try my hand at making some of these next year!  Thanks for the pictures!!

My wife makes wreaths every years out of hops we don't harvest from the backyard.  Her's look good, but the ones in the pictures are really prime examples.  Almost all cones, which might explain the price tags, which are in Euros.  I will show these pictures to her.

When we lived in Germany, we were told having some hops hanging in the house is considered to bring your household good luck.
