Project How-to:

Step 1: Paint your styrafoam wreath yellow so you don't see the white styrafoam.

Step 2: After the wreath is dry, take the mesh ribbons and cut them into 6-inch lengths.

Step 3: Gather the ends around 1" up and twist the 3 colors together. Twist tie with the wire and make a stem.


Step 4: Start working your way around the wreath sticking the ribbon groups in until you think the wreath is full enough.

Step 5: Cut the silk flower stems to about 3-4". Stick them in the wreath as you design. Add as many flowers until you think it's full enough.


Step 6: Add a ribbon at the top for hanging.

Enjoy Spring!
