Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
- 45 ornaments
- Thick wire
- Wreath hanger
Step 2: Cut Wire
You need to cut 80 cm of wire. Wire should be thick enough to give shape to the wreath (it will hold the 45 ornaments)
Step 3: Knot Wire in One Side
Before starting to insert ornaments, you need to knot ONLY one side (the other will be where you insert the ornaments)
Step 4: Insert Ornaments
Insert all the ornaments in the wire. Do not worry if the wreath does not feel firm enough, it will have more shape when you tie the wire.
Step 5: Cut Wire in the End
If there is any additional wire that you do not need, cut it (just leave around 10 cm to close the wreath)
Step 6: Knot Wire
Knot the remaining side together with the first knot. Ensure it feels firm enough to give shape to the ornaments.
Step 7: Hang and Decorate
Use the wreath hanger to decorate your door with this beautiful wreath.
