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.

  • 16-inch-diameter wreath of shiny plastic or metallic Christmas balls
  • 16-inch-diameter pine wreath
  • Floral wire
  • Two 33-light strands of red pearl lights
  • Rubber bands
  • U-pins (greening pins) (available at Michaels)
