Top tip! Make sure you have a variety of each foliage to give your wreath more texture and fullness.
Onto the decorating. Once you have chosen your decorative items, here is how to wire them.
Pinecones: Place one wire around the bottom of the pinecone, slipping the wire between the open scales. Make sure you place ¼ of the wire around the base leaving ¾ to be used for when attaching to the wreath. Wrap the wire around once or twice depending on the weight of the pinecone. Twist the wire over itself to secure. Leave the tail of the wire hanging free for attaching your pinecone to your wreath later.
Artificial Cotton Wool: Cut each head off the main stalk leaving a small piece of wire remaining. With the remaining piece of wire, twist together a new piece of wire to make it longer (if you need to make this more secure, then use some gutter tape to wrap around to hold the two wires together.)
