How to Make a Christmas Wreath

Step 1: Arrange and glue five jumbo craft sticks in a pentagon (a five-sided shape.) Repeat two more times for a total of three pentagons. Let the glue dry, and paint the front of each pentagon green. Let dry.

Step 2: Glue the pentagons one on top of the other, each turned slightly so all corners are visible. Let dry.

Step 3: Cut 3 feet of ribbon, and wrap it loosely around the wreath. Secure in place with a drop of glue at the beginning and the end. Tie the remaining ribbon into a bow, and glue it to the top of the wreath.

Step 4: Punch 18 circles out of red craft foam, and glue them to the wreath in groups of 3.

Step 5: Cut the chenille stem in half; discard one piece. Bend the remaining piece in half, and glue the ends to the top of the wreath, behind the bow, to form a hanger.
