2. To shape radiating husks: Dunk husks in water, blot slightly, and temporarily pin to wreath so they dry naturally in draped, curled, or undulating shapes. Go round the wreath, creating several layers. Let radiating husks dry a few hours.

3. Permanently attach radiating husks a few at a time, using glue gun to position on wreath. Attach in layers, tucking additional husks behind
until you reach desired fullness. As you go, use scissors to trim husk lengths and widths.

All finished!
