Step 2

Play with the shape and position of your bundles before securing tightly with wire. You won’t cut the wire until the wreath is complete. Move in small patches and have your greenery all face the same direction.

    Just found you and already am in love with your site.
    The first project I plan on making within the next couple of days is the mouse pad. I’m thinking of perhaps putting a picture of my grand-kids on one side and my animals on the other side.
    Thank you for this great idea and getting my imagination in gear. :-)
