2. Tie strips into knots around the wreath. It doesn't need to be super full, but just enough to use as a base. I found that just glueing the leaves straight onto the metal wasn't helping much and they needed more of a base for support. Which is why if you are using a wicker wreath, you wouldn't need to complete this step because there is lots of volume to work with.
5. Add in your decorative elements/fillers in places where there might be gaps. Use lots of glue and let sit for 24 hours before hanging.
