  1. Cover foam wreath with duct tape. I used a camouflage pattern roll for this step so the wreath would blend into the background of all the colors of the seasons. Feel free to cover the wreath in your favorite color or in any neutral color that suits your décor.
  2. Lay strips of hook fasteners along the perimeter of the covered wreath.
  3. Create the seasonal accent pieces by cutting shapes of cardstock and sandwiching them between two layers of duct tape. For the autumn corn I sandwiched chenille stems between layers of color duct tape.
  4. Trim the excess duct tape around the perimeter of the shapes leaving about a 1/8” border.
  5. Embellish the seasonal shapes by layering pieces cut from duct tape sheets.
  6. Attach loop fasteners to the backs of the seasonal shapes.
  7. Use the removable hanging hook and loop strips to adhere the wreath to your wall or door.
  8. Periodically update your wreath with the seasonal accent pieces and enjoy its charm year round!
