Step 1: Attach the Webbing to the Fabric

Iron the fusible webbing onto the seam of the fabric, which is cut in 3" strips. (As with the rope, don't make a one huge garland, make several smaller ones.)

Step 2: Add the Wire

Place the wire down the inseams of the fabric. Fold the fabric over the wire and iron to secure. Curl the wire to form a garland-type design for the tree. Wrap the gold-fabric garland around the tree.
