How do I use old pocketbook ring handles for wreaths?

What do I wrap around old pocketbook ring handles for wreaths? I cut off the handle rings of an old cloth pocketbook. They have string crocheted around them now. That will not make much difference or can add to the look. The handles are are made of wood. Thanks for suggestions.

    Can you post a picture? The "rings" that I'm picturing from your description are pretty small.....

    Yes they would make tiny wreaths.

    You can add strips of green fabric all around whole rings( just looping them over & pulling thru) it until nice & thick & covered for nice wreath then add red ribbon/bow to hang it up. you could change out fabric strips for each of the different holidays/seasons

  • Tulle would make a great wreath!

    You could start with floral tape, unless you want the wood to show through. Smaller, or finer strands of greenery/garland, small pine cones and sparkly snowflakes. I think the possibilities are endless for these small wreaths. And the great news is more dollar stores have tons of materials for so cheap this time of year
