To make wire hanger at the wreath top back, insert a 6 inch length of 30-gauge wire into the center top of the wreath. Twist the ends together, forming a loop. Cut each hydrangea head into six 2-3 inch wide sprigs, setting aside the remaining stems for the next step. Glue along the wreath front, alternating colors.
Cut the leaves from the hydrangea stems. Glue curving around the wreath and front edges as shown.
Cut the leather leaf and Boston ferns in half. Glue into the wreath to fill the empty spaces. Bend into curves as shown.
Cut the binding on the 4 inch wreath and cut the vines into 12 inch lengths. Loop each vine over the wreath front as shown and glue each end to the wreath.
