is approximately 20 feet.

"fluff up" the wreath after removing it from its packaging.

The string of white LED lights is distributed out around the wreath to be sure the lights are spaced evenly.

Above: The LED lights are secured by tucking the cords into the branches and gently twisting the branches around the
cord to keep the light string in place.

Above: Odd numbers of silver ornaments are added to the wreath to create an asymmetrical balance.

Above: Silver toned craft wire is cut into 2 to 3 inch lengths to wire the ornaments onto the wreath.

Above: Various sized plastic ornaments were purchased online to use for this project.

Above: An example of how some of the ornaments are wired before being attached to the wreath.
