I used to make wreaths at Christmas out of a styrafoam ring, double or triple ruffled lace, a couple of Christmas picks (taken apart), some ribbon, felt for the back and a paperclip for the hanger.

You "sew" the lace to the ring with a nail file - yes - a nail file - place one end of the lace on the ring a push the lace into the ring with the nail file about 1/2" to 1". Gather about an inch or so of the lace toward your first "stitch" and push the lace into the ring until the gather is imbedded in the ring and repeat until you have made 2 complete rounds on the ring (these are to face outwards on the ring) then go once around the inside edge of the ring. Cover the back of the ring with felt strips using the same stitching method. Turn the wreath over - front side up and decorate with ribbon in the stitched areas and items from your Christmas picks. Add a bow and the hanger and in an hour or less you have a beautiful wreath! Wink
