400 galax leaves (usually sold in packages of 50, and can be stored in sandwich bags and placed in the refrigerator until needed)
28-gauge, green florist's wire

22 3-inch-diameter, matte-finish green balls, wired
20 1-inch-diameter, shiny gold balls, wired
1 yard of 3-inch-wide ribbon
How to Make It
Twist a small leaf into a tight cone and wrap the base with floral tape 2 inches down the stem. Wrap this leaf with another using floral tape in the same manner. Continue with seven or eight leaves until you've formed a rosette. Make about 40 rosettes.
Wrap 12 inches of wire around the stem of each rosette, leaving 3 inches of wire to attach each rosette to the wreath frame.
Attach the rosettes and the wired balls to the frame and hang with ribbon.
