Add a few more blades of grass. The grass sticks to the tape creating a fine grid for the fresh flowers to rest on once positioned

Follow the shape you want the wreath to have

Follow the shape you want the wreath to have. I wanted it to be round but you can also create a square by just following the tape.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
