  • You can get like little berries and put on it, add some ribbon and maybe a touch of garland.

  • Tissue paper-Cut all colors in 1inch by 1inch(? or bigger), place a pencil eraser in the center, and press tissue paper all around pencil making a mold. Glue flat end to the wreath. Remember? Did you do this as a kid?

    Cut out stars and ornaments out of construction paper or felt and go crazy with the glitter.

    Glue candy peppermints or small candy canes to it.

  • Cotton balls?

    For a 3D look - cover entire wreath with leaves using green construction paper. Glue leaves onto wreath. Cut out an ornament and glitter it. Before you glue the ornament on, glue a small piece of thick card board onto the back of the ornament. Glue onto wreath so that the card board is in between the leaves and hiding behind the ornament. It will make the ornament "pop up". Am I making sense? lol

  • Get some of those really small cupcake holder cups or candy size ones. Glue them on for flowers. They are foiled and have designs on them. You can put a cotton ball in the middle and put glitter on them. Or! Turn them upside down and put a ribbon on top so they look like ornaments. We've strung popcorn and glued on them. Cut holly leaves out of other paper and berries. Or cut mitten shapes out of different colored paper and decorate with glitter glue and markers. Cut out small snowflakes and glue them on with or without the mittens.
