Christmas Wreath

Let's pretend that it is still December or even January. I made this fun and fast wreath for my red and white themed Christmas cookie exchange party. I used this bookboard wreath form and these straws from Paper Source. I alternated between full length straws and straws that were cut in half or thirds. I finished it off with a scrap of glitter ribbon I had. My original inspiration was from the Paper Source catalog that had made a similar one.
