Screw six large screw eyes into what will be the top of your wreath (image 1). Try to do these as evenly as possible, then screw three small screw eyes evenly spaced in the bottom of the wreath (image 2).
Cut three pieces of string to 30cm. Take one piece of string and thread it through one of the six screw eyes on the top of the wreath, then secure the string to the opposite eye hook. Repeat until all three pieces are used in a H shape (image 3).
Cut three pieces of string to 120cm. Fold each piece in half, and thread through the eye hook and back through the loop attached to the hook. Repeat with the other two pieces, leaving an eye hook between the others (image 4). Bring the string together at the top, and knot while creating a loop to hang it up (image 5). Put to one side.
Take one of the white Christmas berry stems and cut off the long stem, then shape the foliage around half of the wreath. Using the hot glue gun, glue the foliage to the wreath (image 6). Repeat with the second stem.
To create a filled bauble, open the bauble at the join. Add your different fillings to each bauble (image 7). Join the bauble back together when finished and repeat for all baubles.
You'll find it easier to attach each of your decorated baubles when the wreath is hanging. Secure each bauble, one at a time, using different lengths of invisible thread (image 8). It's best to secure larger decorations to the three screw eyes added to the bottom of the wreath (image 9). Add smaller decorations to the string added across the wreath (image 10) and cut off excess thread (image 11). Finally, all you need to do is find the ideal place to show off your colourful creation.
