- 1 1/2 inch (6), 1 3/4 inch (6) and 2 inches (8).

How to Make It:
- Wrap wreath form with the string of lights, leaving the plug free.
- Fold 6-inch pieces of craft wire and hook bobber at fold. Place largest bobbers first, second largest next and so on.
- Wire the pieces to the wreath form, twisting wires to snag bobber and adjusting and positioning lights between bobbers. Cut wires and tuck ends.
- Fill in with small bobbers and pull lights into place until wreath is full.
- Make a large bow and add to the top of the wreath. Add a hanger wire to the back of the wreath.
