Golden beads become jewel-like decorations for a Christmas wreath. The beadwork flowers have wavy wire stems (they get their shape when the wire is wrapped around a spool). Picks attached to gold beads are planted throughout the boughs, and the wreath is finished with a two-tone ribbon.
Start by gathering the embellishments. When gluing them to the wreath, make sure they are all pointing up, not outward. For the wreath on our cover, we added “snow” to some branches: Dab a mix of white paint and craft glue on branches with a paintbrush and sprinkle the glue with coarse crystal glitter. Let dry, then shake off excess.
