Wreath
1. Gather the end of the mesh tightly together and pin to the back of the wreath.Keep the mesh gathered and begin wrapping it around the wreath to completely cover. Cut the mesh where you stop and pin the gathered end to the back of the wreath.
2. Cut lengths of ribbon to glue around the wreath. Glue the ribbons in alternating bands around the wreath.
3. Cut twelve 10" lengths of mesh. Roll each piece into a tube, fold in half and pin them in a cluster to the top of the wreath.
4. Cut three lengths of the purple wire and curl them into spirals by wrapping them around a pencil. Straighten out each end and glue one end into the bats. Attach the bats to the wreath by inserting the wire into the wreath. Secure with glue.
