Continue adding green stems to the wreath

Continue adding green stems to the wreath. Add a few stems so that it loops away from the wreath shape to give the flowers a place to nestle in

Add your fresh floral details

Add your fresh floral details. I kept my stems long so that I can position them and keep them hydrated. I make tiny straw test tubes for watering the stems. The tubes are cut short and glued into the back. Weave a few more stems over the flowers to somewhat cover up the straws

See the Tutorial below for more detailed instructions on how to make drinking straw test tubes

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.
