Learn how to create a wreath ornament out of pipe cleaners.


  • Cardboard

  • Scissors

  • 6-mm green pipe cleaners

  • White pipe cleaners

  • Red felt-tip marker

  • Glue gun

  • Ribbon

  • Sequins and beads


  1. Cut a cardboard circle 3 inches in diameter. Cut a 1 1/2-inch-diameter circle out of its center.

  2. Wrap this wreath form tightly with 6-mm green pipe cleaners; you'll need about four 12-inch sticks to do the job.

  3. To add a tiny candle, cut a 1 1/2-inch piece of white pipe cleaner; "light" the flame with a red felt marker. With hot glue, attach the candle to the wreath; glue a bow over it. Add sequins and beads to resemble ornaments.
