Step 2

Cut strips of plastic bags or ribbons in the color of your choice. White is usually the best choice, but consider the baby's room decor when making the wreath. For instance, if the nursery has a jungle theme, black or brown plastic bags or ribbons will make an attractive present.

Step 2

Glue synthetic pearls along the wreath if this matches the little one's room decor, or hot-glue mini stuffed animals around the wreath. Choose animals that match the color scheme of the wreath. For instance, if you've used pastel colors, baby chicks or little lambs are fitting.

Sew the baby's name onto baby booties, and glue the booties to the wreath. Or, sew the little one's name to a strip of blanket, and glue the strip to the top or bottom of the wreath.
