Use various other decorations to your liking. But, tinsel is necessary to wrap the wreath.

Wrap the tinsel around the wreath. Use decorations that can be outdoors.

The tinsel is sticky and catchy enough that I just tucked the ends in and around the wires and they stayed securely.

Add more tinsel of another kind for variety.

Use a twist tie to tie the top of the mask to the top of the wreath. So don't cut off the hang tag, it is needed for this step.
