How to Properly Shape a Wreath
Wreaths from Christmas Central on occasion cause some confusion with customers, as they are shipped in a tightly bound and packed state that makes them appear smaller than they actually are. It is unfortunate, but many concerned customers call in to this company unnecessarily, believing that they have been sent the wrong item, when this is not the case. The wreaths need to be shaped, expanded, and fluffed out to reach their full measured size, which is determined by measuring from outer tip to tip.
The simple steps are as follows:
Carefully unpack the wreath and place on a flat scratch resistant surface.
Plug the light cord lead into an UL approved extension cord, at least 6' long.
Plug the extension cord into any convenient 110v standard floor or wall outlet, the best look will be achieved by shaping the wreath while lit.
Form either hand into a claw or comb shape.
Hold the wreath ring and slowly move it in a circular direction as you draw your clawed hand through the branches while going against the grain.
Apply this technique several times to attain fullness and best look.
Hang the wreath in the desired location and adjust the foliage into its final arrangement.
Be sure to confirm the appearance of your wreath matches your needs for it.
