Step 1: Start by wrapping the hula hoop completely with green floral tape.  This step is optional, depending on the color of your hula hoop.  We choose to wrap it so that the wreath base stayed hidden.

Step 2: Gently bend the wire stem of the artificial leaves so that they are slightly curved, like the shape of the hula hoop.

Step 3: Tape the first leaf to the hula hoop, roughly six inches from the base of the leaf so you will be able to bend the leaf.

Step 4: Continue taping the tropical leaves to the hula hoop, using the leaf to cover the stems of the leaves below it. Mix the style and color of the stems as you work to create interest and depth.
