Sim­ply search on­line or pop into your near­est Hob­by­craft store and you'll dis­cover a daz­zling ar­ray of crafty bits and pieces in all your favourite colours.

Step 1:

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).

Step 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).

Step 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.

Step 4:

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.

Step 5:

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.

Step 6:

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.
