These instructions are from my last light wreath DIY:
Really simple, I strung the lights around the wreath through the wires.
The first strand, I carefully counted bulbs and meticulously attached each one to the wreath frame. Guess what? It looked exactly the same as if I just wrapped it around and did not bother with the whole counting and attachment thing. So, the next strands I made it simple, and just wrapped it around!
Doesn’t it even look great just sitting on the wall unlit?
