Wire wreaths come in different shapes and sizes; some are quite narrow and some quite wide. The size and thickness really doesn’t matter for this project – once you have your wire wreath base and all your other materials to hand, you are ready to begin!

Tear the wreath fabric into three strips, wrap around the wire ring and glue the ends to secure. As you’ve torn the fabric the edges will fray, giving you that ‘shabby chic’ look!
