Add some ribbon into your wreath. I got a piece of ribbon cut, right here. This is probably a yard and a fourth. I am going to put in on my wreath first before I add my boughs, so I will have some loops that cover this side of my wreath.
I am going to pinch it right into the loop. I like to put my boughs over to the left side a little bit, or you can put it in the middle or the right side. I will just, everybody has different purposes. Alright! I am going to stick this right up in here.
What is wonderful in working these Christmas wreaths is when all of these little stems are wired and just gone twist to at least to these green stems—which you wired it around the stems. Just got wired it around so it will hold it, and then right there in that spot is where I am going to go attach my bough.
So I am going to put these just out the way, so I can put my bough up. And I have got the pipe cleaners stick at the back of my bough for a tonic. I am going to point it in and make sure to get a whole long bough. The main wire, that holds the wreath together and I will put more in here till it reach down to put the other, reach around behind and just twist it several times, release it up to anchor the end. And then I will just point it up inside the wreath so you can actually stick it on the back.
Alright! First thing I am going to do is anchor on this small side. And I wanted to stick out just a little bit, so I am going to took it right in here. I am going to be in on of this green stems, right over the end it and pull it around. I will come out here on this side and I will do the same thing, I am just removing these green streams out on my way a little bit. I am going to bring it up and pinch it, tuck it into the wreath and twist another green stem right around that tail. In this wire, you can run your fingers along it, and then pull it. Now, you got the two streamers coming out.
Run your fingers along the wire and that makes it crawl and then I will do the same thing that I do in the sides. I wanted to come out a little bit. I do not want it to be pulled straight down, so I am going to pinch it right in about here, tuck it in right there and then another green stem around here. Now, I can stay-up and probably get these loops a little bit long, I will come and have to trim that a little bit and I rather start out with them too long than not having enough with them.
Pull this along, and I am going to pinch this one and tuck it up inside the wreath and twist. Another green stem around it and I am going to go to get it right now and trim these out just a little bit. I would always like to cut, but I just think I have to done these and we are finished.
Now, my bough looks very pretty like it is. It is in place, it is stiff and it is wired. But just to make sure that it stays there, I am going to grab some of these green stems from the wreath and some of the outside loops of the bough. I am going to bring the green stems into the loop and tuck it in here and that just anchors it there. Make sure it is not going anywhere.
I am going to put another one back here. And I am going to do one from the side, and make sure it will not mess up while you are working on the body and straightening that out. Okay. Some of these green stems will make it perfect, just bend some down inside the wreath, I will be sticking it out right there.
Alright, that is how the wreath goes with the bough and extra ribbon at it.
