3. Wrap the flower garland around the bottom half of the hoop. Adhere the ends of the garland on the back of the hoop with a hot glue gun.

5. Finally, glue the plastic flamingo above the flowers at the bottom of the hoop wreath. I had to improvise and insert some lollipop into the flamingo because that was the only way it would stay glued to the wreath. You can rearrange the flowers to hide the sticks
