This simple, sparkling holiday wreath is perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas. By using the gold and bronze it's highly versatile. It hangs in my dining room as Thanksgiving approaches and will be showcased in the Master Bedroom for Christsmas decor.
I used a 15" white twisted wreath available at any craft store.

A 30' roll of wire Christmas ribbon that was 2 1/4 inches wide in a light tan fabric with 1 1/2 inch of shiny gold down the middle. (This was more than enough ribbon. It will now adorn presents, too.)

Once I had the ribbon, I searched for unusual looking picks that would be interesting but also festive. I went with a bronze and gold theme and then found the animal print fabric flowers. (I used 3 of them along the bottom.)

I purchased a variety of items in the color scheme I was using. You can find picks with all different flowers and leaves and glittery pine cones.
Begin withe the ribbon. Pick a place to start and secure the ribbon with a small piece of wire. It doesn't matter where you begin. Make loops with the ribbon and secure. Go all around the wreath. (All loops do not have to be identical.)
Once you've completed this looping begin to add the various pieces to the wreath making sure to stand back and check for balance.
The final step is to fill in with the flowers. Save them for last. It's so simple to make a beautiful money and enjoy it for years.
Step by step details are available on the blog.
