STEP 2: Weave a chenille stem through the edge of the orange burlap and attach. Next twist the chenille stem on the back of the wreath to make a strong secure twist.

Once your burlap is secured to the form you can pull through a loop underneath the wreath form. Continue to do so till you reach the middle of the wreath.
