Instructions

Step 1

On a flat surface, loosely arrange the ornaments in a circle how they’ll be arranged on the wreath.

Good to Know

To keep flakes of glitter from spreading as you work, lay down a canvas drop cloth or long strip of kraft paper on your work surface to catch what comes loose from the ornaments and wreath.

Step 2

Begin by arranging the three large red ornaments almost evenly spaced around the wreath. Attach each ornament with floral wire. Then add the red and gold ornaments, varying the number to avoid a symmetrical arrangement.

Step 3

Wreath ornament detail.

Evenly distribute medium-size ornaments and picks with berries, pinecones, and glitter sprays with the look of pine needles. The decorations shown complement each other in texture as well as color.

Step 4

Red and metallic decorations transform a basic wreath into an elegant circle of Christmas beauty. —Lowe’s Creative Ideas

To hang the finished wreath, wrap two pieces of wire in a loop with the ends together. Twist the ends and wrap them around the wire frame of the wreath at the top. For an alternative way to hang the wreath, loop a wide ribbon through the opening and hang it from the ribbon.
