    Tie 10 chenille stems around the inner ring of the wreath, spaced apart evenly. Gather the burlap into four folds, then tie down using the chenille stems on the ring. Do not cut the burlap. Once tied down, gather 10 inches of the material, and twist once. Gather the end and tie down into the next chenille stem. Repeat around the inner ring until complete. Tie 10 more chenille stems around outer ring and repeat this process. Adjust and fluff the burlap as needed. TIP: Choose a neutral shade of chenille stem that camouflages behind the burlap.
