Snip away any stems that keep a vine wreath in place and loosen up the coils. If the wreath is too dry to manipulate soak it overnight in warm water.

Tie the wreath to a few sticks to make it stand upright. See the Tutorial below for more detailed instructions on how to create upright armatures with twig tangles

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.
