HOW TO:
NOTE: There are quite a few steps to this wreath so be sure to check out the full tutorial on the Grillo Designs Blog at link below.
-STEP 1: Take your wreath forms and combine them using the 4 zip ties to make one solid wreath form, then take 2 orange chenille stems and form a grid across the middle.
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.
Once you have made it to the middle you will secure that loop with a chenille stem.
