It is super easy to make and creates a glowing effect.

What you need

2 lengths of large-and-small crystal garland
3 lengths of all-large crystal garland
Wire cutters
Extruded Styrofoam wreath form
Bank pins


Cut apart garlands with wire cutters.

Attach a crystal to wreath form by pressing a bank pin through each hole.

Repeat, placing crystals as close together as you can and using smaller ones on top to fill in gaps. (Don’t worry if they are not all flush — this creates dimension.)

If you plan to hang wreath against a wall or door, leave back side uncovered. If hanging in a window, cover entire form with crystals.

Tie ribbon around wreath.

All done!
