Sweep the entire house into one pile.

Quickly clear out some excess bins from all junk drawers in house and garage and basements (if you have one)

Delve into cracks of couches and other soft furniture and root out all objects including coinage.

Look at pile

Rummage through pile. Consider things like colour and texture and rhythm of pile objects.

Don’t forget to strive for balance in form and content of wreath! Have fun.
