Full Answer

Those people who are not confident in their ability to shape Christmas tree cuttings into a circular shape may want to use a plain, pre-made wreath or other pre-formed circular shape to help guide them. However, the process of shaping the cuttings into a circle is fairly easy. The individual branches can be bunched together and wrapped with wire, and these bunches can then be arranged into a circular shape and connected with wire, which can the be bent into the desired shape. Bundling the branches prior to joining them together gives the wreath a fuller shape and makes the wreath easier to form, making it possible for the crafter to manipulate the shape of the bundle into a curve shape to be added to a circular wreath.
