Then place the stem in the glue bead.

Fold the other side of the leaf over so it sits on top of the stem, covering it and eliminating the gap that at the bottom of the leaf.

The nice part about this method is that no mater which way the leaf is facing – the stem is covered.

Method two: Draw a bead of glue along the side of the slit at the bottom of the leaf.

Fold over the leaf to create the finished tucked look.

Glue a bead of glue to the back of the leaf and place the stem on it.  Be mindful that you will want to make sure the the stem is not facing out when you assemble the wreath.  Either method will work – go with what works for you.
