Next, cut a 12 inch of single wire wreath form. Form the wreath wire into a horse shape by bending it. Make a small loop on each of the wire ends to form small hooks for hanger.
Then, glue a 12 inch length of floral wire onto the back of each leaves. You can find these floral wires precut for you in any craft store.
To make the wreath, attach a leaf by wrapping its floral wire stem around the form. You can start to wrap the leaves at the top of one side of the form. Repeat with other leaves as you gradually overlapping them so that each one covers half of the previous one. Continue until you reach the center of the wire wreath. Continue the same step to the other side with leaves.
