Use your hot glue gun to glue the burlap to the wreath form.
2. Next, slowly wind the burlap all the way around your wreath form, making sure to keep it tightly wound. You don't need to glue it every time as long as you wrap it tight enough.

3. Once you have it wrapped all the way around with no styrofoam showing through, cut the piece of burlap with the scissors. Use the hot glue gun to glue the last flap to the wreath, preferably in the back so people won't be able to see where it ends.

4. Set the wreath aside for now. Cut a square shape from the burlap, and lay it flat with the corners at the tops and sides like a diamond.

Fold the top and bottom corners inward, and use the glue gun to glue the points down to the burlap.
