  • Step 3

    Find two circular objects around your house, one large and one small (like a dinner plate and a roll of masking tape). Use them to trace a wreath shape on the cardboard. Then, cut it out using scissors or an X-acto knife.

    Alternatively, you can buy a craft ring at a craft store.
