1

Gather foliage

Gather your chosen foliage and ensure it is completely dry before starting your project. Move the foliage to a well-ventilated space and place on top of a dustsheet or some old newspapers.

2

Spray paint

Take your chosen can of Rust-Oleum spray paint and shake thoroughly. Hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of the foliage and spray. Apply several light coats a few minutes apart. Leave to dry in a well ventilated place.

3

Attaching the foliage

Once fully dry, attach your foliage to the wreath using craft wire, layering the leaves until you are happy with your design.
