Dollar store Styrofoam wreath and garland for crafting the Christmas centerpiece

1. Crafting the Wreath Base

Begin by grabbing a dollar store styrofoam ring. Choose a garland of your liking for the greenery.

Secure garland to the wreath with zip ties

To secure it to the wreath form, place a zip tie underneath and fasten the garland tightly. Trim off any excess garland, repeating this step around the wreath form.

2. Fluffing and Covering Up

Begin fluffing the greenery by gently pulling it apart. Conceal the zip ties as best as you can, but don't worry if some peek through. You can always add extra pieces of greenery to cover them up later.

3. Adding Berries for a Natural Touch

For a natural look, incorporate berries into your wreath.

Snip them into smaller bits that can be placed throughout the wreath centerpiece.

If you're feeling fancy, mix in different berry types for that personal touch.

4. Securing with Hot Glue

I like to use a hot glue skillet to adhere the decorative elements but a glue gun will also work.

Dip the stems of your berries into the hot glue and press them onto the wreath form. Use the existing greenery on the frame for added support.

Enhance the festive vibe by adding ornaments. Apply a small dollop of hot glue to the hanger or bottom of each ornament and carefully attach them to the wreath.
