Add Screws and Dry-Fit Wreaths

Starting from the bottom third portion of the 2X4 pressure-treated lumber stake, add 1/2" exterior wood screws into the front of the stake with drill. Next use measuring tape to determine the proper distance from the bottom screw to where the center wreath will hang as well as the proper distance from the center wreath to the top wreath. Note: To get this measurement, place measuring tape on top of outer edge of recently hung wreath, holding the next wreath up on stake above it with no space between. Use measuring tape to determine measurement from outer top surface of the existing wreath to the inner top edge of the wreath above it. Use this measurement to add each of the last two screws to their proper places.

Secure With Wire

Once each of the three wreaths are added to screws, secure them to the 2X4 pressure-treated stake with galvanized wire wrapped around the top of the wreath and around the screw. This will ensure wreaths remain in place in the event of strong winds.

Add Embellishments

Add branches, scarf and top hat to bring personality and charm to your three-wreath snowman.
