Step 13: Place glue on the leaves and stick them to the base of the brown felt.
Now your apples are all ready to make into a wreath.
Step 14: Form a circle with the apples, alternating between colours, and overlapping each other. Place glue on the part of each apple that touches the other. Stick each apple one by one until you form the wreath. Make sure all apples are sticking together by lifting them up.
