5. Cut a 20 -24" piece of red organza ribbon and thread around the buckle, knotting the ribbon once, slightly above the ring, and again about 6" above. Trim ends on top with V-slits. Secure bottom knot by placing a small ball of an extreme adhesive square to top back side of clear buckle.
6. Cut (2) 7" pieces of striped ribbon and thread both pieces through the clear buckle. Make loops bending ribbon and securing on back side to create double bows. Attach holly leaves behind these using adhesive squares on tips, bending to the shapes. 
7. Place 3 adhesive squares around the hook of buckle, bending adhesive towards front. Attach holly, bow, buckle and ribbon layer on top of the plastic hanger.Use an adhesive square to add red oval rhinestone to center of buckle for added bling.
