Gold and Glitter
Use a plastic cup that just fits inside the stocking to hold the foam. To enhance a sequined or glittered cone, wrap it in wired LED lights and attach it to a container with a pedestal.
Wheat sheaves are more structural in form than rice, lending a vertical aspect to vignettes.
Easy Rice Sheaves
Rice sheaves are very easy to decorate used a bow. Wire a bow to the sheaf. Hot glue all the materials into the bow in a radiating pattern - like the rays of the sun.
Layer two or three ribbons together for the backing. Glue bows and ornaments to the ribbon. For added strenth to hold the heavy ornaments, wire them to the ribbon and then add the bows.
Glue a piece of foam into a container so that it is filled, glue this topiary tree in the center and cover with moss. Attach the figures by gluing sticks or wires inside.
Use Design Master Paints
Use Design Master paints to turn this bird cage into a Christmas candleholder. Wire the cage to a candlering, and place on a plate, charger or painted terracotta saucer. Add ribbon and cones.

Many of the premade wreaths are so beautiful, they simply need to be styled, and perhaps a bow added. This French satin drapes beautifully.
