What a pretty winter wreath! I have an old puzzle but the pieces are too small for a one inch mirror to fit in the middle. After thinking a bit, I remembered a potato chip bag made with that Mylar type of finish inside, so I might try that. Cutting a true circle, especially that small, sounds challenging though.
