How to make a Cotton Boll Wreath

I know everyone has seen stems of Cotton Bolls in every farmhouse d├ęcor picture. I thought I would change it up a bit and make a wreath.

      You really don't need a DIY step by step instruction for this project. It is amazingly simple.
You need about 5 stems for a 12'' wreath.
The stems I used were fake and attached to wire
that was covered in brown floral tape. I had these at my Boutique.
 I have more available for $3.00 a stem.
You can also get them from Hobby Lobby, but they cost more.
 
Use pliers to cut the stems into separate pieces 3'' to 5'' long.
12'' wreath
I used just a thin base of grape vines from the yard, and dried.
The brown floral tape will match the color of the wreath.
Start by using the wired cotton to wrap around the thickness of the wreath.
Continue around the circle until it is filled to your liking. The wire will hold everything in place or you can use a hot glue gun if you wish.
See... super easy.
The hard part was deciding were to hang it!
