DESIGN YOUR CROWN Arrange clippings (leave 2-3" of stem for wrapping) of filler in a circle how you'd like them to appear on the crown then place statement blooms, concentrating them at the front.
WRAP YOUR BASE Wrap the stems of your filler with 3-4" pieces of wire leaving the last 2" to wrap them on your wire base in the design you arranged. Reserve the big flowers for last.
