Take a piece of the 7 1/2-inch wire and create three large loops. Wrap the excess wire around the base of the three loops to secure the looped section. Secure the end of the looped section on the back of the wood ring with the stapler.

Continue to do the same with the remaining 7 1/2-inch wire pieces, adding looped sections of wire around the face of the wreath.
