Silver and gold balls are bound with gold ribbon and bows, adding a touch of glamour to a formal holiday gathering.

To Re-create:

  • Collect silver and gold ornaments (or any ornaments you wish to re-purpose) in various sizes and textures.
  • Use a hot glue gun to secure ornaments to a wreath base. -Intersperse bunches of folded ribbon and bows between the ornaments and secure with pins or glue.
  • Once everything is secure, gently sling gold rope around the entire wreath and secure in a knot behind the wreath.
  • Add flourishes of gold picks or string for extra flair.
