  7. Cut a 24 inch piece of burlap ribbon. Pull one end of one side of the wire to gather. Roll into the shape of a flower pressing into place and hot gluing along the way.
  8. Add alcohol ink to the burlap flowers. Let dry.
  9. Using a needle and thread, stitch the petals together to create flowers. Hot glue the centers in the middle when stitched. Use either beads, trim, or contrasting felt and the center pattern provided.
  10. To create the rickrack flowers, tightly roll the rickrack to create a center of your flower. Hot glue from the backside to hold. Use just a bit if you want a small flower, or bud. If you want a full flower, keep going until your flower reaches your desired size.

  13. Cut the leaves from the canvas that you have previously alcohol inked. Peel off the backing and stick to the green burlap ribbon. Cut out.
  14. Now, arrange your flowers and leaves on the right side of your wreath. If your fabric wrap on the styrofoam ended at the top of your wreath, be sure to cover that section with a flower. Tuck the flowers and leaves in close to one another so they will appear to be arranged snugly. Hot glue in place.
  15. Add a small piece of knotted twine to the back center top as a hanger. Insert a long pearl-top pin into the styrofoam wreath through the fabric and hot glue in place.
