8. All you need now is yarn that matches your wreath. Cut a longer piece and fold it in half. Take the two ends together, insert them through the center of the wreath and pull them through the loop of the yarn. This will secure it onto the wreath. Pull both ends of the yarn through a bead (you may need a sewing needle to do this. Then tie the ends off at a length you like.
