Easy wreath. Just wrap a styrofoam wreath of your choosing with burlap, then lace wire or rafia through an additional strip of burlap to make it ruffled. Press it on 3/4 of the wreath. Position as desired and hot glue it in place. Then loop another piece of raffia and ribbon through the top and double-bow it. Leave the ends loose or curl as preferred and put small dot of glue to secure. Then glue an initial in place for a finishing touch. Voila!!!

Spray paint everything black, weave the snakes in place, wire/hot glue where anchoring is needed, then do another light coat of spray paint (to cover wire/glue). To add dimension, go back and re-paint forked tongues red and eyes green.
