Let's Do It Yourself
1. Cut off the internal round shape so you will get a shape of hollow circle.
2. Fold in the side of the circle plate to make a pop-up shape of a wreath base.
3. Place a few green paper strips together (to shorten cutting time), and cut vertical strips at about 0.5cm width, leaving about 2cm width at the top (for gluing). Refer to second image below.
4. Put glue on the top of the 2cm space and roll it on the paper plate to cover the plate.
5. Continue step 4 until the entire paper plate is being covered with green strips.
6. Set aside the wreath and move on to the yellow circle to make a bell cover.
7. Insert the bells into pipe cleaner, 1 on each side and bend the end of the pipe cleaner to prevent the bells from falling off.
8. Place the pipe cleaner with bells secured on the yellow round circle and wrap it with the yellow circle with glue. Refer to 6th image from left below.
9. To stick it on the wreath, turn the wreath around to the back, place a tack-it on the top of the wreath, then stick the bell on it.
10. Lastly, turn the wreath back to the front and decorate it with mini red polystyrene balls. Use tweezers for easy grasp. Stick using white glue.
