Select small pieces of fruit to suit the size of your wreath. Then cut one piece of wire about 1 foot long for each piece of fruit.
Cut the wire at an angle to create a slight point on the end.
Keeping your fingers close to the tip of the wire, push it into the center of a piece of fruit. Continue pushing it through until it emerges from the other side.
Push half of the wire through the fruit, cross the wires on the outside, and twist them together. Leave the ends free. Repeat for the remaining pieces of fruit.
Position the fruit where you want it on the wreath with the ends of the wire around a section of the wreath or one of the wires on the wreath frame. Twist the wire ends together and snip off the surplus with wire cutters. Tuck the cut ends into the wreath to avoid accidental scratches. Repeat for the remaining pieces of fruit.
To continue the theme, use the same technique to attach pieces of fruit to live or cut decorative trees.
