Next cut strips of plastic around 1 1/2 inch wide and 4 inch long (10 cm X 4 cm).

Tie the plastic strips around the wire by tying a single knot.

Keep doing this until the wire is full. It should be thick (around 1 hour). You can trim any long pieces when finished with the scissors.

Finish off your wreath by adding a center piece. You can do this by tying a Halloween trinket (we used a giant rubber spider) into the center with fishing line.
