- Start by tearing up your white fabric into pieces about 2-3 inches wide. Don't worry about cutting them nicely, just tear it. The white fabric will be under the cheese cloth and you won't really see it. Wrap the fabric around the wreath base and secure with pins or hot glue.
- Next tear up the cheese cloth into strips about 3-4 inches wide and wrap it around the wreath over the white fabric. Don't worry about making it look neat and tidy. It should be a little messy.Once the cheese cloth is secured with either pins or glue pull on it a little to loosen it up.
