Step 2: Tie wire to straw wreath
Now attach the floral wire to the straw wreath. To do this, leave a piece of wire protruding, wrap the wreath around several times and then twist the wire.
Step 3: Tie plants to the wreath
Now the binding begins! To do this, the plants are wrapped layer by layer and repeatedly placed on top of each other.
First put pampas grass on the wreath, then some eucalyptus green and rabbit tail grass. Then wrap the wire around everything. Place another layer of the plants over the wire, wrap everything tightly again and pull.
The small Christmas balls can be easily attached to the wreath. Simply place the Christmas bauble next to the plants and wrap it again. Attach four bundles of three balls in different places.
