Steps

1Step 1

The way I did it was probably a bit harder than it could have been as I cut it once it was rolled up, but to make it easier to cut you would want to measure the length and cut it flat before rolling.
Roll out the chicken wire netting onto a flat surface and mould it straight so you can then go ahead and roll it up

Tip: To ensure your florals are easy to poke into the rolled chicken wire try not to roll it too tight

2Step 2

Bend the shape into a circle. To get your desired size of wreath work out how much excess to cut off the end using your scissors. I used the whole 10m roll!

3Step 3

Join the ends together and tie using about 30cm of your tie wire, wrapping it around the join until it’s secured.

Tip: It visually looks better to have an uneven number of bunches.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber.
