      @Marg Dorsey Marshall Lol - I did think about big black buttons, but they looked a bit odd on the sides of it - too far apart, and I tried suspending them in the opening on wires, and they looked even weirder lol, so I gave up ;0) hehehehe

      @Cindi McGee Maybe up near the "antlers" wouldn't look too bad on each side, toward the inside of the wreath?

    How many spools of burlap per wreath?

    what size wire wreath?

    • Cindi McGee Cindi McGee on Dec 23, 2018

      How many "spools" of burlap "ribbon" will depend entirely on how big a wreath you choose - the wreath I listed in the supply list is 12" across, and I used about 2 spools of the burlap I believe. It will also entirely depend upon how much of the "burlap ribbon" is in the packet you buy - sorry to be vague - but there are a lot of factors that will change based on brands chosen, etc.
