Two wreath frames are strung with twinkling lights that are nestled in frothy, doily-like paper bouquet holders known as "Biedermeiermanschetten." What You'll Need Materials 24-inch wreath form 30-inch wreath form 24-gauge wire White spray paint 20-foot strand of white holiday lights (Woohaha LED Christmas Lights) Scissors Paper bouquet holders (we used ten 8.8-inch ones, twenty 6.4-inch ones, twenty 4.8-inch ones, and fifty 3.2-inch ones) Instructions Working on a covered surface, lay a 24-inch wreath form inside a 30-inch one. Attach them with 24-gauge wire at six to eight evenly spaced points. In a ventilated area, coat combined wreath form with white spray paint. Let dry. Wrap the wreath form with a 20-foot strand of lights (test lights beforehand), leaving the plug end unwrapped (as much as is needed to plug in). With scissors, widen the center-hole slits slightly in paper bouquet holders (we used 10 8.8-inch ones, 20 6.4-inch ones, 20 4.8-inch ones, and 50 3.2-inch ones). Poke a finger through center hole of each bouquet holder (from front to back) to create openings large enough to accommodate a lightbulb. Beginning with largest ones, place bouquet holders evenly around wreath, slipping a light through each hole so that bulb bases, not bulbs, rest against paper. (From time to time, hang wreath, and step back to ensure that the arrangement is balanced and attractive.) Add remaining bouquet holders in descending size order. Use smallest bouquet holders to cover centers of larger ones and to fill in any gaps. Hang near an outlet. Unplug when unattended.
