Instructions

  1. 1

    Cover your work space with newspaper, and place a grape vine wreath base onto the newspaper.

  2. 2

    Push a hot glue stick into the back of a hot glue gun, and plug the gun into an outlet to let it heat up for 15 minutes.

  3. 3

    Squeeze a line of hot glue along the stick of miniature flags, and press the flag sticks onto the wreath in random locations. Hold the flags in place for 2 minutes so that the hot glue can cool.

  4. 4

    Cut a red ribbon to measure 12 inches, and tie it into a bow. Red is the symbolic colour of Remembrance Day. Squeeze a quarter-sized dollop of hot glue onto the back of the bow, then hold the glued bow onto the grape vine wreath for 2 minutes.

  5. 5

    Squeeze pea-sized dollops of hot glue randomly over the wreath, and press metallic streamers onto the dollops. Hold each streamer in place for 2 minutes.
