Hooray! You just finished building my Christmas Wreath! As always, feel free to ask questions, leave comments, and rate! If you built it, send me a p...
This is a small wreath that will look good with your other Christmas decorations :-). It's mostly made of green connectors and white rods, plus red "berries" and a red ribbon at the bottom. I also included some fake lights. This only took a day to build.
Fun fact: this Instructables uses 149 pictures.
This is an entry to a Knex contest. EDIT: it won 1st place in the contest!
This was also a first prize winner in the Homemade Holidays Contest, thanks to everyone who voted!
Before you begin building, gather all of these parts. There's only 10 kinds of pieces.

If you have all of those pieces, then let's get building!
Step 2: The Five Sections
You aren't building anything in this step. I'm just telling you what the five sections of the wreath are. They are the top, right, bottom, bottom left, and top left. The little decorations aren't included in these sections.
Step 3: The Top, Parts A-C
Okay, let's start off by building the top. You'll build parts A, B, and C. You'll combine them in the next step to complete the top. Everything will fit together like a puzzle.
Be sure to pay close attention to the pictures and image notes. Build everything exactly like it is in the pictures.
Step 4: Combining Parts A-C of the Top.
Combine the parts you built in the last step.
Step 5: The Right, Parts A-D
In this step, you're building the right section of the wreath. It's divided up into four parts. Don't combine them yet, that's for the next step!
Step 6: Combining Parts A-D of the Right
Combine parts A, B, C, and D to complete the Right.
Step 7: Combining the Top and Right
In this step you'll combine all of what you have built so far. These sections attach to each other in two places.
Step 8: The Bottom, Parts A-C
Build parts A, B, and C. Don't worry about combining them.
Step 9: Combining Parts A-C of the Bottom
Now you'll combine parts A-C to complete the Bottom.
