  1. Take one pipe cleaner at a time and twist onto the wreath. Start on the inside of the wreath and twist a pipe cleaner onto the wire. Add two pipe cleaners on each “section” of the wire. One on the inside wire and one on the outside.
  2. Measure 10 inches of mesh, then pinch together in the middle. Wrap the pipe cleaner around the pinched section and attach to the frame, about two inches over from the previous pipe cleaner
  3. Continue to attach the mesh along the inner ring (every two inches) until you are about 1/3 of the way around, then move to the ring above. Repeat this until you attach mesh to all the rings on the top half of the wreath.
  4. Now attach the a different colored mesh to the outer ring and the third ring. Then attach your last color of mesh to the second and fourth ring.
  5. Lastly attach witch hat piece to the top and the bottom witch leg pieces to the bottom (optional)
