A laurel wreath is a crown made of branches and leaves.  In Ancient Greece, it was given to people who won various competitions in sports or writing.  The wreaths were also worn by important people, like Roman Emperors. 

When you hear the old phrase, “resting on one’s laurels,” it means that someone has done something amazing in their past (something wreath-worthy), and is relying on those accomplishments to represent them in the present.
