    crystal-wreath-ht-20915-md110592.jpg

    Attach a crystal to wreath form by pressing a bank pin through each hole. Repeat, placing crystals as close together as you can and using smaller ones on top to fill in gaps. (Don’t worry if they are not all flush -- this creates dimension.)

  3. Step 3

    If you plan to hang wreath against a wall or door, leave back side uncovered. If hanging in a window, cover entire form with crystals.

  4. Step 4

    Tie ribbon around wreath.
