One way to do would be to wrap the wire frame with wide ribbon like florists use. Most places that sell sewing & craft supplies offer this kind of ribbon such as Michael's & Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart, & even Amazon. It comes in many colors.
Using a tiny bit of hot glue, you can anchor the ribbon to the wire frame holding it in place so you can wrap it over the frame going inside & outside the top & bottom of the frame. When finished, anchor the end of the ribbon on the inside at the bottom with a tiny bit of hot glue.
Hope this helps.
