2. Using the Glitter Glue, paint a coat of silver glitter on each ball and let dry.

3. Take the Magnetic Sheet and cut out a 6. 5in./16.5cm dia. circle. Place the Foam Balls in a circle over the edge of the Magnetic Sheet. Cut the magnetic sheet smaller if needed. Glue the Foam Balls to the white side of the Magnetic circle. Let dry.

4. Glue on the Pom-poms between each of the Foam balls. .

5. Twist together a red and white Chenille Stem. Cut in half and with one half, create 2 loops for a bow and twist together to secure. With the other half of the Chenille, thread the ends through the bell holes and secure onto the bow. Glue the bow securely onto the bottom of the front of the wreath.

6. On paper, write a holiday greeting or print out a photo and glue into the middle of the wreath.
