1: Spray the three foam pieces with glitter, covering completely. (Do this outside.)
2: Place ring on the Lazy Susan, and place two foam discs in center with the smaller one serving as a platform. Put wreath on top of discs.
3: Add candles to outer ring, twisting them into the foam. Embellish with candle rings and leaves to cover exposed foam.
4: Using a glue gun, attach garland or tinsel around the exterior of the foam ring.
5: Add snow globe and other embellishments, like horns, blowers and beads.
Optional: Attach nametags to the candles. Write a guest’s name on one side of a tag and, on the other, write a positive word about that person. Repeat for each guest.
