reinventing the wheel

SHORT & SWEET
You'll need: lollipops (in different sizes) and a knifeStarting at the top, poke the largest suckers into the needles stick-first. Switch to medium and then tiny lollipops as you work your way down the wreath. Trim the sticks with a knife.

COLOR ME PRETTY
You'll need: spray paint and ribbonSpray the leaves lightly (but evenly) with a bright-colored spray paint, then add a big bow in another zingy color.

HOUSE JEWELS
You'll need: costume jewelry and stringSecure inexpensive necklaces, pendants and bangles to the greens with string, then drape the pieces over the branches. Use glittery brooches and earrings to add pops of sparkle to any blank spots.
