The 21″ Vertical Line Black mesh was attached to the 24″ Copper Work Wreath using the pouf technique. Poufs measures 14″
15″ Lengths were cut from the 10″ Dark Frayed Natural Burlap and gathered into ruffles. A ruffle was attached into each twist by opening the twist and placing on top of the pouf. You could add more of the burlap if desired.
We use a 24" x 36" self healing Omnigrid Cutting Mat and a 45mm Omnigrid Rotary Cutter (these are available at Amazon and we have included our affiliate links.)
24″ Lengths were cut of the 2.5″ Textured Sackcloth ribbon along with 24″ pieces of the Orange/Black Faux 1.5″ Dupioni. The striped ribbon was layered on top of the sackcloth. The ribbons were pinched about 5-6″ from the ends and a twist opened and secured right on top of the pouf and the frayed edge burlap. The opposite end of the 24″ pieces were pinched and secured in the next twist. The ribbon should lay loosely over the pouf, if it is too tight, pinch a shorter amount. These strips were secure all around the outer and inner ring.
The 3″ Natural/Black Harlequin ribbon was cut in 13″ strips. All the ends of the ribbons were just cut at an angle. The 13″ pieces were pinched in the center and secured into each twist by opening the twist again, laying the ribbon piece down and this time securing the twist with 3-4 turns since this was our last layer.
The 4″ Copper balls were secured with chenille stems. You could hot glue also. We just ran a chenille stem through the hanging string and wound the balls around the chenille stem until it was snug, then secured the chenille stem to the work wreath frame.
The Pumpkin Head Pick and Spanish Moss Pick were secured together with two zip ties.
A simple loop bow was made the with 1.5" black/orange stripe ribbon and also secure to the Pumpkin Head Pick and Spanish Moss. A chenille stem was slipped through the back of the cluster of picks and bow before the zip tip to secure the bow was completely tightened down.
The entire pick/bow cluster was positioned on the left front of the wreath and secured to the work wreath frame with a couple of zip ties.
The wreath measured about 28-29" before the addition of the Pumpkin Head Pick and Spanish Moss Spray. The depth was 9-10" Be sure to check the back of your wreath and make sure no zip tie ends or chenille tips would scratch your wall. Turn those to the inside of the wreath or cover with tape. You can make a hanger for your wreath out of a couple of zip ties put together.
