Quick and easy Christmas wreath

Some cute ribbon, a little felt and a sprinkle of glitter is all it takes to turn a Smoothfoam wreath form into a cheerful Christmas decoration for your front door.

Wrap flat ribbon snugly around a wreath form, overlapping the edges and securing in the back with straight pins. Painting the wreath form is not necessary – I recycled this painted wreath from another project.

Use a pastel pencil or a crayon to draw holly leaves on green felt, the more random the shapes and sizes, the better! Cut out as many as you want to create a cluster on your wreath. Poke a toothpick into each of three 1″ mini Smoothfoam balls to use like a handle, then brush a generous amount of craft glue all over each ball. Sprinkle with glitter until fully covered, then poke them into a scrap block of Smoothfoam to dry.

Glue the felt holly leaves in place on the wreath and lightly rub a little glitter on top – the nap of the felt will hold it in place. Push the tip of a craft knife into the spot where you want a glitter berry, to cut through the felt and ribbon and make a pilot hole. When the glitter berries are dry, poke them into position into the pilot holes on the wreath. Pin a small loop of ribbon or floss to the back for hanging.
