Save the fake snow for your tree: Rach’s design buddy Evette Rios takes wreaths from tired to inspired using only two supplies each.

reinventing the wheel

SHORT & SWEET
 You'll need: lollipops (in different sizes) and a knife Starting 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 ribbon Spray 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 string Secure 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.
