Cedar Wreath "Chandelier"
This Scandinavian-style greenery "chandelier" is an eye-catching way to draw guests to a holiday cocktail or buffet table. It's fashioned from a pair of cedar wreaths that have been adorned with wine-colored satin bows and suspended from the ceiling with lengths of the same ribbon.
- 16-inch-diameter cedar wreath
- 22-inch-diameter cedar wreath

With the small wreath's wire frame facing up, slip 1 end of a 5-foot ribbon length through frame's rim, and knot firmly. Repeat with 2 additional 5-foot ribbons, knotting at evenly spaced intervals around wreath.
