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 wiring the owl ornament centered at the bottom using the place where the scarf is attached at the back. (Avoid covering any of the pinecones already attached to the wreath.) After securing the ornament with floral wire, twist the ends and snip off the excess.

Step 3

Wire the largest ornaments -- the fabric balls -- to the wreath for a balanced layout. Then add the snowflakes to help offset the position of the fabric balls.

Good to Know

A tightly packed cluster of small ornaments can give you the same visual impact as one of the large ornaments to balance the arrangement.

Step 4

Step 5

Fun and colorful, this holiday wreath pulls together a variety of shapes and themes. —Lowe’s Creative Ideas

To hang the wreath, wrap wire in a loop and tie the ends to the top of the wreath at the back. For a more decorative hanger, cut a 2-foot piece of wide decorative ribbon in the color you desire, loop the ribbon through the wreath, and hang the wreath from the ribbon.
