Ball and Light Wreath

Make the entrance to your home inviting to holiday visitors -- including Santa -- with bright, merry lights; their sparkle highlights the shimmering globes and greenery of this double wreath. Combine two ornamental rings into one spectacular showpiece; weave in red lights to accentuate the luster of colorful Christmas balls.
