- Horizontal Stripe Talisman Orange/Purple/Black

Halloween Wreath Kit Instructions
Simply follow these instructions to put this grapevine wreath together for Halloween!
Split your bright orange bush (or the greenery of your choice) in half by folding half of the stems down.
Layer one of your greenery bushes into the top leaves and then one into the bottom section.
Add your 3 curly picks into the top half and then add your 3 curly picks into the bottom half.
Place a zip tie around all your stems to keep them together. It should look like two bundles of goodies touching tip to tip.
Place the talisman on top of one side of your grapevine and then secure into the grapevine with a zip tie.
Start blending your layers of greenery and picks together so that it doesn’t look like a bucket of Neapolitan ice cream! You want it well-blended so that it looks like one cohesive design.
Make sure your stems match the curve of your grapevine. If they don’t just give them a slight tug/bend until they do. Fluff out your curly picks.
Using the EZ Bow Maker make a simple bow to add to your wreath. For this one, I did (2) 6” loops on each side, and then (1) 5” loop on each side. I used zip ties to hold the bow together. Then, I cut a small strip of matching ribbon and tied it around the center of the bow to hide the zip tie.
Attach the bow into the void space on the wreath. You can use a zip tie to hold it into the wreath.
Dovetail the ribbon tails by folding them in half and then cutting from the non-wired side to the wired side. You should be cutting at a downward angle.
TIP: Make sure that your stems are all cohesive. If any stick out too far, just bend them down a bit to help make it look like they’re one big happy family, and there aren’t any oddballs.
