With your wreath frame facing up, lace your stemmed monstera leaf over the first and last horizontal bars of the wreath frame. Then bend the stem backwards around the innermost wreath frame bar, securing it to itself as well as the 2 wreath bars with hot glue.

Bend your stemmed palm leaf until the end of the stem lines up with the tip of the top palm leaf. Then cut off the excess leaves on either side so that the leaves begin at your bend. Set these cut leaves aside as we will use them later in this tutorial.

Place your bent palm leaf against the vertical wreath bar closest to your monstera leaf. Sandwich the 3 innermost horizontal bars of the wreath frame between the palm stem and palm leaf, securing them together with hot glue. So far your wreath should look like the picture on the right.


STEP 3
