Step 1. Spray paint the small trifle and wreath gold. When spray painting the wreath, use quick short bursts of spray paint, so that the wreath just gets a dusting of gold.
Step 2. Unwrap the lights, insert the batteries and turn the lights on. Place the battery pack in the Medium Trifle. Flip the small trifle bowl over and place in the middle of the medium trifle, covering the battery pack. Gently wrap the lights around the trifle. This step is little tricky, The wires won’t end up showing, so it’s ok if they look a little messy.
Step 3. Fill the trifle bowl with the waterbeads. Be careful, the beads are really bouncy.
Step 4. Cut some of the gold beads off the necklace and add to the top of the water beads for a little extra special sparkle.
Step 5. Assemble the centerpiece. Place the trifle bowl in the middle of the wreath and place a candle on top. For a little extra bling, you can hot glue some of the beads around the base of the candle. The centerpiece should glow for at least 5 or more hours. Check the recommendation on your LED lights.
