How To Make It:

  1. Cut an assortment of ribbons to desired lengths.
  2. Hot glue one end of the ribbon to the styrofoam wreath and begin wrapping it around, gluing every so often to keep it in place.
  3. Hot glue the end to secure it.
  4. Start the next ribbon where the other left off, hot gluing in the same way. Continue until the entire wreath is covered with ribbon, with no styrofoam showing.
  5. Wrap black yarn around the places where the two different ribbons meet, gluing to secure it at both ends.
  6. Cut some string and make a bow.
  7. Hot glue the bow onto the wreath, in the middle of the circle.
  8. Paint the face on your styrofoam semi circle, using the template.
  9. Hot glue this onto the wreath, just above the bow.

Note: Hot gluing and cutting should be done by an adult.
