  2. To make the wreath card: Cut a red pipecleaner into two. Twist it together to make one thick pipe cleaner. Repeat with green pipecleaner. Then twist both the red and green pipecleaners together and form into circle. Hot glue. Use a small piece of tinsel pipecleaner to make a bow. Glue. Add alphabet stickers for a greeting if desired.
