    I've added a video about attaching the initial bulbs to the wreath if anyone needs it. :)

    I created 31 of these in different sizes, adding regular ornaments also .

    I tried 8 kind of glues and came to the conclusion than whatever the ornaments are made from will not hold together after you glue and hang them.

    I used over 2000 ornaments and ended up donating all the wreaths to thrift store.

    Sold out in an hour.(I did explain to store personnel that glue was not holding on them and to let buyers be aware.

    Pool noodles melted from hot glue.

    All I can say is they were gorgeous.
