I first sprayed a piece of the Snow Covered Glitter Trees CS with lime, metallic green, and gold sprays. When dry, I die cut three rosette strips, accordion folded, and attached to each layer of the tree. Simple as that.
Here is a close-up of the tree.
If you want to make your ornament removable, as I did, you can either use removable glue dots or adhere a velcro dot to both the frame and wreath and attach to frame. When you want to change it out, it is real simple.
I made a second ornament (snowflake) to change out as my mood suits me, or if my photograph changes.
