What do you do with wire wreath frames?
A wire wreath frame is ideally used for artificial flowers. Prepare your flowers, cutting tools, wire and tape to begin with. Grab your base stems and begin grouping and wiring these to the frame. The task is best achieved by grouping 3-5 artificial flower stems at a time and attaching them to the frame.

Using a high temperature glue gun to attach your floral stems, greenery bushes and any other wreath or floral enhancements to your designs will help assure that these elements are securely attached to your wreath base or floral containers. I personally use a cordless glue gun.
How do you make a wreath with real branches?
Start the wreath by taking a few different boughs of greenery and bunching them together at the base of the branch. Take the bundle, and place it against the wreath form. Use your floral wire to wrap around both the bundle and the form a few times, until it feels secure. Do NOT clip the wire when you are finished.
