How to make a rememberance poppy wreath
Arrange the poppy where you would like it to sit on the wreath, ideally positioning the leaf at 11 o'clock and glue into place using the hot glue gun.
Next, add your 2nd poppy onto the wreath and glue down.
Add your final poppy if desired and glue down, or continue this step if you would like a wreath full of poppies.
Take your wire and begin to thread it through the wooden wreath.
Loop the wire through the wooden wreath and curve back up.
Adjust the wire through the loop until it's at your desired length. Then twizzle the ends together to allow you to pin it to a door.
