20140701_135543_resizedUsing a wire wreath, pipe cleaners, paper mesh ribbon, and grosgrain ribbon, this wreath was made in less than an hour.

2014-07-01 13.12.36The first step was to twist pipe cleaners onto the wire wreath.

2014-07-01 13.12.41Then gathering the paper mesh, make little “poofs”  (FYI – Poof is an official craft word!) and secure with the pipe cleaners. I used silver pipe cleaners to give it a little sparkle.
