Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Wire and bend foliage

Wire and bend blades of grass

This will work with any long, flat foliage like aspidistra, typha or even long flax leaves. Wipe the blades of grass clean with a soft cloth. Sandwich a thin wire between two blades of grass of equal length and glue.

Bend and shape wired lily grass

Bend and shape wired lily grass to make curls or sharp twists. Take care not to bruise the fresh grass as you bend it.

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.
