3.Adhere to the wreath using Perma-fix tape; place them as close together as possible to hide the polystyrene wreath.

4.To make the bow, cut a 3cm strip of paper from the 12x12 pad, fold in half cut the corner on each side of the fold to make two V’s when opened, Trim off the corners off the other end too. Adhere the ends to the center to make the bow shape, wrap the middle with a 1.5cm strip of contrasting paper. Cut another strip of 3cm paper, cut in half and cut a v in the end. Do the same to a 1.5cm strip; adhere to the back of the bow as the tails. Adhere to the wreath.
