• Poster board paper
• Tin foil
• Clear tape
• White paper
• Gold ribbon or paper (at least 2cm by 3.5cm blocks can be cut from it)
I apologize for the quality of the pictures, but hopefully my writing compensates.

• Start with the inner ring. If you followed the measurements above, then the inner ring shouldn’t need more than 5-7 teardrops, but if you want a larger or smaller central hole, it’s up to you. All tails/angles of the drops should face outward from the center of the wreath. You should get somewhat of a sun shape. Put glue on all the parts where the teardrops will be connected to attach them to each other.
• Continue with the second ring. Surround the inner ring with teardrops, placing the spiral of an outer ring in between two angles of the inner ring. Then when there is sufficient space between an inner ring angle and an outer ring angle, put another spiral of another teardrop in it.
Step 6: Step 6
• For each bell cut out a 2cm by 3.5 block of ribbon or gold paper.
• Fold two corners toward the other end, overlapping to form a cone. Glue the corner that ends up on top on the other flap. This should make a paper cone (though the cone base has not been evened out yet).
• Fold the tip of the cone backwards and glue it down. This will be the top of the bell. The side that has the tip glued down will be the side that gets glued to the wreath (and therefore not seen)
• Cut out a base for the cone. When the cut is done, it should look like a bell ready for the wreath, so I’d suggest a cut that makes a side length of the bell almost, but less than 1cm.
• Repeat these steps for a second bell, which should be the same size as the other.
• Glue the two bells to what looks like the most attractive “top” of the wreath.
• From the white paper cut out five 2.3cm by 2.3cm squares of paper.
• This is a very rough process, but basically take the two bottom corners of the paper and bring them together so half the paper square will become a “stem”. Roll the stem so it’s more solid.
• Crumple the top half of the paper into a rose-like ball. If it doesn’t look great the first time, just try again. Improvising is the key to making original jewelry!
• Coat the stem of the rose in glue and insert it through a spiral of the wreath where it fits/looks nice. Repeat this for as many roses as you want. I used five.
Step 7: Step 7
:D Alright! It should look similar to that, but not quite the same. Each one is its own special work of art. Hope you enjoyed it.
