The second video, which was filmed less than a minute later features one of the men holding the wreath while the second uses a battery-powered reciprocating saw to cut through the fastening before making their escape.
Ms Bailey put an appeal for information on her Facebook page.
She wrote: ‘Massive long shot as I’ll props never see it again but if anyone offers you a wreath or you see this one hanging on someone else’s door, please let me know!
‘It’s handmade so one of a kind. I’ll props never find the people who’ve took it but maybe I’ll find the wreath!
‘People can be such scumbags.’
Several people responded on social media criticising the thieves.
Bethany Jade Kitson wrote: ‘This is disgusting.’
Robert McFarlane said: ‘Nothings sacred nowadays thieving b*******·’
Others said they could not believe the men made two attempts to steal the homemade wreath.
MailOnline has approached Ms Bailey for comment.
