- 4 feet of wired twine
- 6 feet of artificial greenery garland
- Florist’s wire
- Artificial flowers
- Hot-glue gun
Begin bending the wired twine so that it is a rounded shape approximately 12 inches in diameter. Wrap additional wired twine around the shape to give the wreath’s foundation more strength. Twist the ends into the wired twine to close the circle.
Using the photo as a guide, bend the top of the shape to create points on the right and left sides for ears. It should resemble a cat's head.
Begin wrapping the greenery around the shape as many times as you'd like until the twine is no longer visible.
Wrap small pieces of florist’s wire discreetly around both the twine and the greenery to reinforce their attachment.
Cut the stems off of the flowers, and arrange flowers on wreath as desired.
Finish by gluing the flowers into place with glue gun.
