Easy! You take a "Holerith-code card" - (later IBM punch card), fold
over the corners of one end so it makes a "point" and fasten them (tape,
glue, whatever); turn it over so the fold is on the 'bottom' and staple
the square end to a piece of cardboard (or similar material). You fold
the next card, and staple it next to the first, on an angle, and repeat
around in a circle. This is the outside of the wreath. You continue
adding layers, alternating like shingles on a roof to the center. Spray
paint the whole thing gold, green, red, whatever, and add a little
greenery (bells, whatver) in the center and voila!

Here's a picture I found on the web:

I'm dying to know how this is done. All I ever did with punch cards was

draw ballerinas (mostly in pirouette pose, due to the physical
constraints of the card).
