Clamshell Wreath How-To
1. Take a 12-inch metal wreath form packed with straw. Wind wire tightly around straw and frame at 1-inch intervals.
2. Apply tacky craft glue on inside edge of shells.
3. Arrange shells like a puzzle on wreath form. Place medium shells in the center and along the sides; add the tiny ones to fill in gaps.
4. Hang wreath using 2 nails for extra support.
Bond 527 glue, 12-inch metal wreath form, and packing straw are available at hardware stores, hobby shops, and arts-and-crafts stores.
