Step 4: Attaching the Balls to the Wreath

Attach the balls to the wire wreath, being careful not to wind the wire too tight just in case you need to make a few adjustments and move yarn balls for a better fit.

Once the all the yarn balls are in place, tighten and trim the wires on the back of the wreath.
