Step 5

Take your paddle wire and wrap the bundle to the frame, twisting the wire around the back. DO NOT CUT YOUR WIRE. You will now use it to wrap around over and over to secure the rest of the bundles.

Your wire is now secure enough to continue to wrap the rest of the bundles to complete your wreath. Take another bundle and layer over the first.
