Items below are what might be called Japanese style wreaths as they are modeled after Shimenawa, a cord of rope made by twisting together strands of rice straw, which is hung over the front door of a house during New Year's holidays to ward off the evil spirits

Shochikubai....This wreath is decorated with pine, bamboo, and plum trees, a combination known as "sho-chiku-bai". Because pine and bamboo trees stay green all winter and the plum tree is the first to bloom in the chill of an early spring, sho-chiku-bai have , since the Nara period (710-784), come to represent strength, vitality, hope, and good fortune. For centuries, the trees have been planted together, incorporated into flower arrangements, employed as a design motif, and used decoratively for such auspicious occasions as New Year's and weddings.
