1. First, I bought some wire wreath bases at Michaels and separated them so I could have two separate rings to use for my wreath base.
2. I cut the catalog pages into 10" squares (this is as big as I'll go... I actually prefer a 6-8" square) and used a thin metal rod to roll them diagonally. I had to make sure it was a tight roll, then I taped it at the end.
3. Once I had at least 100 straws, I sewed them snugly together on the sewinig machine about 2" from the end, ending up with a long string of straws sewn together.
5. Once this was done, I carefully flipped it over and used hot glue to attach the larger wreath base to the straws.
