Stretch a round 12-inch double-wreath form into an oval shape.
Using 24-gauge floral wire, wrap 3-inch mistletoe tips in small bunches of threes and fours. Repeat with 4- and 5-inch mistletoe tips.
Starting at the top of the wreath, secure smaller bunches, adding 4-inch, and then 5-inch, bunches as you work toward the bottom of the form.
To make berry clusters, cut about twenty-two 6-inch pieces of 28-gauge wire. String three beads onto each wire, and twist the ends of the wire. As you attach mistletoe to the form, wire in a berry cluster after every few bunches.
