Cut about 24 four-inch lengths of thin florist's wire. Take one wire and wrap an end around the base of a preserved leaf. Next, wire the leaf to the circular ring and continue until the form has leaves attached all around.

Attach Circle

When all of the leaves have been attached, take U-shaped pieces of medium-weight wire and attach the circle to the evergreen wreath in a least four places.
