Once you have your branches, start to build a circle, using the twine to tie together
Keep building to required thickness and keep tying on with twine
Tie on your decorations securely.
You could leave the wreath natural or add a bow or tinsel for some color.
Qs - What shape are we building ? Will we make a big one or a small one ? What colors have we used ?
