Classic Christmas Wreath for the “Bow Challenged”

I love Christmas!  One of the first signs of Christmas at our house is the hanging of wreaths on the front door. 

Classic Christmas Wreath for the "Bow Challenged" 

The picture really doesn’t do this beauty justice.  

I created this wreath without tying even one bow!  That's right!  Even the most “bow challenged” can put this beauty together in no time. Here’s what you’ll need in addition to your wreath base:

May Arts Red & Gold Metallic Stripes, Gold Wired Metallic, Metallic Gold Netting, Red Iridescent with Gold Wired Edge; Wire cutters, Florists’ wire; red/gold balls

And here’s how to do it:

After the ribbons and balls are wired, begin adding them to wreath; pulling the wire through to the back and twisting it securely.

Keep adding ribbon and balls until you’re satisfied with how it looks.

    Oh My Word! This is fabulous! Looks so Beautiful! Do you think this would work for garland on the fireplace. I put it on 4 different ways yesterday and still not happy with it. If you think it will work or have a better solution, I would love to hear it.
