Hot glue end of the yarn to the wreath. After it is cool, hold point with finger and wrap yarn around wreath until completely covered. Tie or hot glue the end into yarn.
Print out holly leaf pattern (download button below). Cut out.
Select one brown print and two red prints from paper pad. Trace larger leaf three times on the brown print and three times on your piece of felt for a total of six leaves. Trace smaller leaf four times on one red print, three times on another, and another three times onto the remaining piece of felt for a total of ten leaves. Cut out all leaf pieces.
Score all of the paper leaves the long way down the middle. Adhere three of them onto the front of your larger felt leaves. Then use hot glue to adhere your leaves to the top of your wreath in alternating patterns, with one grouping on each side of the top of your wreath. When you are finished, there should be approximately 2" between the two sections of leaves.
Cut and tie one yard of the brown ribbon to the center of the wreath.
Tie a bow with the red dot ribbon on top of an additional piece of brown ribbon. Hot glue bow in the space between the holly leaves.
Wind some extra yarn into small balls resembling holly berries. Tuck some of the yarn balls into the leaves and hot glue them in place, leaving the rest to dangle from the center.
