1. Choose a good quality wreath, shape and fluff by pulling out the greenery up, out and side to side. 

 

Show Me Decorating Tip: How do you choose a good quality wreath? Turn the wreath over and make sure there is more than one wire ring as the base. Feel and bend the greenery sprigs to check the gauge of wire, the heavier wire will hold its shape. Also run your hand on the greenery, you want a bristle to it, this indicates a heavier ply of vinyl shredded to create the pine look. A thinner, softer ply will not have the resilience to bounce back from year to year.


We use a metal florist easel (also used to hold funeral sprays) with a piece of cardboard attached, to hold many of our wreaths and teardrops You could also hang on your door to work on with a metal wreath hanger or nail.

2. Add your bow! Wire onto the wreath. 2 yds of the 2.5" Black and white  and 3" red ribbon were used in this bow and 1 yard of a narrow plaid ribbon was tied across the middle and curled.

    I collect Santas. I have a Santa theme tree, all kinds of Santa figurines (dolls, statues, collectibles), Santa wreaths, Santa rugs, Santa bedspreads, shower curtains and towels. I could go and go about Christmas and my Santas. The Santa with his list is a perfect addition to my collections.
