Wrap each of the 3 wreath forms with the white yarn. Glue the ends of the yarn in place with hot glue, and glue the yarn every few inches around the wreath to keep the yarn from unraveling while you work.

Lay the 3 wreath forms out on a flat surface, with the medium wreath form in the middle. Cut 2 pieces of yarn and use the yarn to tie the small wreath to the medium wreath, and the medium wreath to the large wreath.
