The Perfect Holiday Wreath

holiday-wreath
I was looking all over for a large (very large) artificial wreath without breaking the budget on custom ordering an oversized wreath online. This was what I came up with.
 

Step one:

Purchased a 24 inch artificial wreath at Michaels craft store, along with an additional 9 feet of artificial garland (total cost $18….what a steal)
 
Step two:
I wired the extra garland to the underside parameter of the existing wreath to really beef it up and give it more definition.
 
Step three:
Strung a set of large carnival-like clear globe lights to the wreath, using the clips that came on the lights to help fasten to the wreath. (I purchased these lights at Target)
 
Step four:
To hang this monster, I purchased a multi purpose command hook with a weight tolerance of 7.5 lbs. This hook must be mounted 24 hours in advance so it can set before hanging any items on it.
 
Step five:
TADAHHH!!! A Perfectly Plump Wreath! What a great focal point to my living room wall. When the holidays are over I can simply take down the command strip and I won’t be left with a big whole in the wall.
