Step 1

Cut all six dowels in half to make a dozen 18" pieces.

Step 2

Use a circular item, such as an empty 1-gallon paint can, to build the wreath around and form the middle circle.

Step 3

Create a tic-tac-toe pattern with four of the dowels, working around the paint can as you glue. Continue to work around the can as you glue each layer together.

Step 4

Paint the wreath. (We used Valspar Gloss Berry spray paint.)
