Prep Floral Stems

Using wire cutters or scissors, cut the long floral stems off where the branches meet at the base (Image 1). Using a dab of glue to get started, tightly wrap the stems in yarn, working your way up the stem (Image 2). Cut the yarn when you reach the top, then secure with glue.

Attach Floral Stems

Attach the floral stems to the wreath by bending the stems to mimic the shape of the wreath, then attach using grapevine wire. Twist off the grapevine wire in the back of the wreath.
