Floral arrangement using orchid roots to make Jack Frosts Christmas stocking

The Christmas stocking is one of the most endearing symbols of Christmas.

Wire, line and orchid root stocking

This year I used wire, fishing line (mono-filament) and Phalaenopsis orchid roots to make a messy lace Christmas stocking.

I dressed the stocking with frost green Cymbidium orchids

and the tiniest ice pellet beads to add sparkle on the orchid roots.

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.
