Finished product cost less than $6.00 - the price of the 10 yard roll of burlap ribbon.
Pry canvas from frame using jack knife
Use staple gun to create even ripples of ribbon. Turn ribbon at a diagonal at each corner. 
Pull decent berry sprigs from a worn-out wreath. Wrap sprigs with cloth stem wire. Cover the stems with grosgrain ribbon and leave a tail to staple to back of frame. 
Place accent sprigs/ribbon where you like, then staple the ribbon tail to the back of the frame. Voila! Youve rescued an old piece of artwork and a junky wreath!
