Upcycled Christmas Wreath

Just realized I should have taken a before picture--

The greenery on this wreath is around 20 years old, so the ribbon and ornaments were pretty shabby and needed to be replaced. Even the hot glue was beginning to come loose. So I picked out some new swirly red and gold ribbon for the bow and used some gold ribbon to wrap around it. Tom and I picked out some glittery, almost neon, striped ball ornaments to fill in the blank spots on the wreath.
Voila - new wreath!
