The first thing you need to do is attach your reel wire to the metal wreath frame. I do this by winding the end of the wire around a cross section of the frame, twisting until it feels secure, before wrapping the reel wire around the base a few times.
Now that your wire is attached to your frame, it’s time to moss your base. Grab a handful or two and place it on top of your frame. It doesn’t have to be super neat, but it does help if you use a fairly generous amount of moss, maybe a bit more than you think you need. (If you don’t think you have used enough at the end of this stage you can repeat this process).
Keeping the reel wire firmly in your hand, allowing around 10 cm of length (no more, don’t get carried away), begin to bind the moss onto the frame, holding the moss with your left hand and wrapping the wire around with your right, working in a clockwise direction and wrapping every inch or so.
At the end of this process the moss should feel firmly attached to the frame and it should feel consistent all the way around, like a mossy wreath shaped pillow for your foliage to sit on.
Do not cut your reel wire, as you will need it for the next stages.
