grommet I made last month and up-scaled it to make this wreath. I started with a rope core, and then utilized the same technique I applied to make the grommet last month, only (obviously) much larger. There are a couple strands of wire fished through the back to give it some extra stiffness. For this version, there are two strands of 1/2" manila rope about 40 feet long that make the covering. It's about 18 inches in diameter. I also made a few smaller wreaths for neighbor gifts. Let's just hope my wreath hook holds because it's quite stout.
