Let's Do This!
Step 2. Grab one of the strips.
Step 3. Fold it into a "U" shape.
Step 4. Place the "U" through one of the wires on the wreath.
Step 5. Bring the tails through the "U".
Step 6. Pull the tails.
Step 7. Continue until the entire wreath is filled in.
Step 8. Place the wreath on a protected work surface.
(hot glue will drip down)
Step 9. Spread the ties in different directions.
Step 10. Hot glue Ornament Balls in the spaces.
Step 11. Keep hot gluing ornaments.
Step 12. Tie a bow to one side.
That is it!
