1. Sizing

Work out what size of wreath you’d like and measure the wire so it’s twice the length of the circumference, plus an extra 60cm. Fold the wire in half.

2. Thread baubles

Thread baubles of different sizes onto the two separate pieces of wire. Thread each bauble individually, alternating larger baubles with smaller ones, to help create a layered effect. (You may want to twist the two separate pieces of wire around each other to keep the two ‘threads’ together between baubles.)

3. Check for a circular shape

Keep threading the baubles, making sure you keep a circular shape and filling gaps with the different sized baubles as you go along.

4. Secure baubles

Once you’ve finished threading the baubles, twist the wire together tightly to secure the baubles. Use one piece of the remaining wire to create a small loop for hooking up the wreath.

5. Wrap fairy lights

Wrap some battery-operated fairy lights around the bauble wreath, tucking some in between the baubles to enhance the layered effect. Use the other piece of spare wire for securing the battery pack to the back of the wreath
