Create a Detailed, Festive Christmas Wreath in Adobe Illustrator

David Maw shared his simply gorgeous version of a festive Christmas wreath illustration from a tutorial by . He commented:

"I really have to thank you. The brush creation technique and the way that you show how to create stars was excellent to learn. I would humbly suggest (something I learned from another tut) is before adding the highlights, possibly add places of shadow below them (I used a green to transparent radial gradient with opacity set to multiply). Worked like a charm! Love this site and the contributors."
