Starting on the back, wrap yarn around the wreath several times in an abstract pattern. Then tie the yarn off on the back of the wreath and secure the knot with glue.
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.
Lay the corn cobs side by side, staggering their heights a bit. Glue them into place.
Attach Corn Cobs
Wrap the corn cobs with wire and yarn and tie off. Secure with glue. Use the grapevine wire to attach this to the base of the wreath a bit off center.
Cut yarn to size, then knot on one end. Tie knotted yarn hanger onto the back of the wreath (Image 1). Hang using a wreath hanger or removable hooks (Image 2).
