  • pliers
  • oasis blue rust-oleum paint
  • all-purpose adhesive (or E6000)
  • 12″ wire wreath form
  • hanging wire basket chain
  • blue & clear glass beads


Step 1

Remove the inside metal support of the wire wreath using pliers, then open the ends of all six of the center supports. Once the center ring is removed, flatten the ends you opened back together. After this, turn the wreath over as the bottom is going to be the top. Grab the little tabs you flattened and bend them downwards.

Next, attach the glass beads underneath the pie plate up to the sides using an all-purpose adhesive. Once done, set it aside and let the glue completely dry. In the meantime, remove the three chains from the hanging basket. After this, spray the chains with Oasis blue rust-oleum paint as well as the wire wreath. Let the paint dry.
