- Trace wreath on newspaper to make wreath pattern. To plan color position of balls, place balls on paper pattern as desired. (Hint: Place all same color balls first, distributed evenly around wreath. Then place next color. Continue, placing one color at a time to get an even distribution of colors.)
- One at a time, use glue gun to attach balls from pattern, onto same position on wreath. (Note: Some balls are attached to wreath front, while others are attached along “edges” of wreath, going toward inside or outside. Also vary the position of ornament caps.)
- With Design It:® Wire Cutter, cut berry cluster branches from floral stems. Referring to photo, insert ball alternate color clusters around wreath, between ornaments.
- For hanger, hold wreath to determine top center and place mark on back. At mark use Design It:® Foam Cutter to make 1/4″ long, shallow horizontal slit. Carefully insert blade into slit, angled up toward top and remove. Slightly separate curved ends of paper clips 1/4″. Insert shorter rounded ends up into slits, creating hanger loops with longer end of paper clip. (Hot glue if loose.)
