Not all wreaths have to have greenery! For this one, I let the giant gems relay the holiday spirit! This is an easy project that really makes a fun statement!

There’s two ways to go about this…you can just glue and go or you can first arrange all the gems the way you want them and then glue them down. Guess which I did? Yah, I just glued as I went along, no planning. I did make sure to use a contrast of sizes and colors to give it balance. I also covered the outer and inner edges.

Add a bow and you are all set! I LOVE this wreath, it’s so sparkly!
