    Cut fabric into long strips that's enough to cover the foam wreath form and put some glue in the strip fabrics


    Wrap the foam wreath with the fabric strips. Put more glue if needed to stick the fabric on the foam.


    Once done covering the foam with fabrics let it dry. Cut the Felt in shades of green into leaves and design it with red buttons. Put some ribbon on the back to hang the wreath.
