Step 6: Once you have filled in the entire wreath frame with your greenery, wrap the stems and leave the spool to the back of the wreath. Flip the wreath over.

Cut the wire off leaving a 3 to 4 inch tail. Wrap this last bit of wire around the top ring and your finger to create a loop. Twist the end around the base of the loop to close.
