Fourth of July wreath!

I wanted it to look like a firework, and even though it's not exactly what I pictured, I still like it a lot.  I used metallic spray paint I already had, (I considered buying some really bright silver and brass spray paint, but I didn't want to go to the store last night, so I used my brushed nickel and hammered gold I had laying around) a wire wreath frame, gold and silver glitter, and some of that glitter foam paper.  I got the stars from Roberts' with a 50% off coupon. 
I drilled a hole in the side of each of them, I used the smallest bit my husband had.  Then I used Gorilla Glue to secure a length of wire in each drilled hole.  After that I painted and glittered and cut out foam stars.  I used the wire from the wooden stars to secure them to the frame until it was pretty well covered, then glued the glitter foam stars directly to the frame to cover up and wires and fill in empty spots. That was it!  I used some ribbon I had to secure it to the door, and voila!
There it is.  I kind of wish I'd done it bigger- I had leftover stars, but the frame was already pretty full.  But of course, if I'd used a larger frame, I wouldn't have leftover stars, which I now have plans for.  Hmmmm.
